GCDA’s windmill project to be wound up

Company that put up the structure decides to back out of project

It was set up with a lot of fanfare at the Marine Drive earlier this month. But after one of its leaves came off a second time on Thursday, the windmill set up by the Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA) is all set to make an unceremonious exit.

United Electricals, a Kollam-based public sector company that put up the windmill, has decided to back out of the project. The company is about to write to the GCDA next week stating that it does not want to restore the windmill.

The windmill was in the news for all the wrong reasons ever since its installation on July 5.

The leaves of its fan came off the very next day after it was set up. It was restored a week later only to come off again.
