State-owned power generator NTPC has declared that 8 MW part capacity of its 20 MW solar project at Auraiya, Uttar Pradesh, is now operational following successful commissioning.
The company, however, didn’t mention whether the operational capacity belonged to the 20 MW floating solar project being implemented by Larsen & Toubro at NTPC’s Auraiya gas station.
Significantly, from its current power producing capacity of 62 GW, NTPC plans to become a 130 GW company by the year 2032. In line with the global trend towards renewables, the company plans to achieve 32 GW of capacity through renewables or 25% of its overall power portfolio at the beginning of the next decade.
As per a recent media release by NTPC, it has currently around 2.4 GW of RE projects under implementation, out of which 237 MW is from floating solar projects located in reservoirs at NTPC’s existing stations.
