The state government and the company have inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to this effect during Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's visit to Singapore, according to media sources.

Nearly Rs70bn ($1.03bn) would be invested in the proposed wind project, which will be developed in a phased approach.

Phase I and II of the project will generate 540MW and 407MW respectively, The Press Trust of India reported citing Chouhan.

"Singapore has agreed to cooperate with Madhya Pradesh in five areas including food processing, renewable energy, urban planning and smart city, skill development and IT," Chouhan added.

Additionally, The Directorate of Town and Country Planning in the state and Singapore Corporation Enterprises have agreed to collaborate on urban planning and smart city.

The state' Technical Education and Skill Development Department and Singapore ITE Education Services have also reached an agreement, in addition to a food processing collaboration between LT Foods India and DMM Nutrition Products, Singapore.

Sembcorp Green Infra, a subsidiary of Singapore-based Sembcorp Industries, has over 1,000MW of solar and wind energy generation capacity.

The company was formed as result of Sembcorp Industries' acquisition of a 60% stake in Green Infra, a renewable energy company in India, for Rs10.6bn ($147.1m) in February last year.
