Vikram Solar, an Indian module manufacturer and solar power plant developer, has commissioned 130 MW of solar PV capacity in the Indian state of Rajasthan for the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC).
The project at Bhadla Solar Park forms part of the Phase-II development process, and has been conducted under the State Specific Bundling Scheme, which ‘bundles’ thermal power from the NTPC Singraui thermal power station with solar energy being installed at the Bhadla project.
Vikram Solar completed the solar installation as two 65 MW solar plants, and the firm has also signed a five-year O&M contract with the NTPC to ensure the arrays’ smooth running. In completing the project, Vikram Solar now has an installed solar portfolio in India of 275 MW.
Vikram Solar’s executive director EPC solar Anupam Dhiman added: “Apart from the aspect of generating clean and environmentally friendly power, the fact that such large-scale projects enable us to provide considerable employment opportunities gives us double the sense of accomplishment in the commissioning.”
The 46 MW will be installed thus: 20 MW awarded to the Northern Railways division, 10 MW to the Western Railways division, 10 MW to the North-Central Railways division, and 3 MW each for the North Western Railways division and the Rail Coach Factory division. Read More…
