Tata Power Solar has successfully commissioned a 100MW solar project for NTPC in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. The plant is expected to generate nearly 160 million units (kWh) of energy per year and help offset approximately 110,000 tonnes of CO2 in the first year.
Tata Power Solar delivered the project in record 80% of stipulated timelines, and nearly 3 months ahead of the stringent schedule. Key highlights of the project were the innovative design of Balance-of-System (BoS) and cabling, along with optimized selection of evacuation systems.
Speaking on the project, Ashish Khanna, ED & CEO, Tata Power Solar, said, "Today, pace of delivery and quality have become crucial benchmarks in the industry and we are especially proud to 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 100MW plant is the largest project commissioned by us to date. We hope to continue to build on our capabilities and deliver over expectations to proficient customers like NTPC."
Mr. A.K. Jha, Director (Technical), NTPC said, "Given our ambitious target for green power, we were aware that our requirement of rigorous timelines and cost-efficiency was a challenging one. We thank Tata Power Solar for their experience and commitment in delivering this large scale project ahead of strict timelines."
