Videocon eyes wind power market in India with Rs. 2000-crore fiberglass plant

With an aim to address growing wind energy sector in India, Videocon is planning to open a 60000 tons per annum fiberglass plant at Bharuch.

The group has set aside approximately Rs 2000 crore for this purpose, according to official statement.
