Oriano Solar, a Mumbai based solar energy EPC firm, has commissioned the two 20 MW PV power plants for thin film module manufacturer, First Solar in the Gadag and Belagavi districts of Karnataka, respectively.
The two power plants totaling 40 MW are designed to collectively generate around 82.83MWh per year of solar energy. A 25-year Power Purchase Agreement has been secured with state-owned distribution utility companies in Karnataka.
The project is based on U.S. manufacturer First Solar’s CdTe (Cadmium Telluride) thin film PV modules, leveraging the latest 1500V inverter architecture.
During the construction phase, the projects had more than 725 people working at the site. “This is Oriano’s first project with thin film modules, and their commitment to delivering on time within budgets was exemplary,” said Sujoy Ghosh, Country Head for First Solar in India.
Speaking on this occasion, Yeshwant Rao, Co-founder & MD, Oriano Solar said, “Both the Oriano and First Solar teams worked seamlessly in delivering this project on schedule and building a high-performance PV plant. The expected plant performance ratio is approx. 81%, thereby giving better energy yield.”
