in Sri Lanka China’s Sinosar-Atekewin has abandoned plans to build wind and solar power on the three main islands and is moving to the Maldives. There have been reports of Indian interference after the withdrawal of the Chinese company from Sri Lanka. It is also rumored that the project will be handed over to India’s leading businessman Adani, leaving the Chinese company.
Sri Lanka-China Agreement:
In the waters between Sri Lanka and India, the three main islands of Jaffna are Nedundi Island, Analai Island and Nainath Island. The Sri Lankan government has announced a global bid to generate electricity from wind and solar power in islands where electricity is only available through diesel. When companies from several countries, including Indian companies, competed to acquire the project, the Chinese-based Sinosar-Idequin company won the project for about $12 million. Last January (2021), China officially signed an agreement with the Sri Lankan government.
