BHOPAL: Sembcorp Green Infra Ltd. will set up a 1,000 MW wind energy plant in western Madhya Pradesh under a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the state government, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan said on Friday.

Sembcorp Green Infra, a subsidiary of Singapore-based Sembcorp Industries Ltd., is a result of parent company's acquisition of renewable energy firm Green Infra Ltd. in February 2015. The company has over 1,000 MW in solar and wind energy generation capacity.

The MoU was signed between Sembcorp and the Madhya Pradesh government's renewable energy department during Chauhan's visit to Singapore from January 12 to 15.

Another MoU was signed between LT Foods Ltd. India and DSM Nutritional Products, Singapore, envisioning a range of collaborations from urban development to capacity building, skills training and food processing, the chief minister told reporters.

Chauhan said he was very impressed by the advancement Singapore had made in skills training.

"It was amazing that a skills training centre I visited in Singapore provides training right from hair-dressing to repairing aircrafts. I realised then that we have been left far, far behind in this area," he said.

"Singapore had agreed to our request for providing help in improving our skills training infrastructure."

Rather than having the youth wait until they had earned a college degree to seek employment, his government would now try to help them get training in skills that would fetch them jobs soon after finishing school, Chauhan said.

Chauhan was honoured with the Lee Kuan Yew Exchange Fellowship during his four-day Singapore sojourn.

He is the fourth Indian to have been awarded the fellowship.
