Novus Green lands 15 MW floating solar EPC work in Telangana


Telangana-based Novus Green Energy has announced that it has won an aggregate 15 MW AC (19.5 MW DC) floating solar capacity from state-owned coal miner Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL). The capacity was awarded in an auction conducted by the Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd (SECI).

Under the contract, Novus Green will be responsible for complete engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of two grid-interactive floating solar projects located in the State of Telangana, along with ten years of comprehensive operation and maintenance. 

The floating solar plants shall come up at Singareni Thermal Power Plant storage reservoir (10 MW) and Dorli open-cast project void (5 MW).

Work on the solar projects is scheduled to begin in early 2021, and is expected to be commissioned before September 2021.

“We are fully geared and very excited to execute this project by using our innovative designs and execution capabilities to meet SCCL’s expectation. I am sure that our endeavor to make this a state-of-the-art installation will help it in being recognized as a model large-size floating solar power plant in the country,” said Praveen Penchala, Vice President-Projects, Novus Green, in a press statement. 

Novus Green Energy Systems—a solar energy-based solution provider—also has a state-of-the-art solar photovoltaic module manufacturing line with 300 MW per annum production capacity. The company plans to expand its production capacity to 1 GW per annum soon. The factory is capable of manufacturing poly-crystalline, mono-crystalline, half-cell and glass-glass modules.
