NTPC Commissions 100-MW Solar Plant
A 100-MW solar project has been commissioned by NTPC Ltd in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. This is the biggest solar project commissioned using domestically manufactured solar cells and modules. The plant is expected to generate nearly 160 million units of energy per year and help offset approximately 110,000 tonnes of CO2 in the first year. The key highlights of the project were the innovative design of Balance-of-System (BoS) and cabling along with optimized selection of evacuation systems. The plant has been installed by TATA Power Solar.
Ashish Khanna, Chief Executive Officer, Tata Power Solar, said, “Today, pace of delivery and quality have become crucial benchmarks in the industry and we have delivered a project of this scale in record time. By bringing together our core strengths in domestic manufacturing and EPC services over the last 25 years, this 100 MW plant is the largest project commissioned by us to date.”
