The floating solar PV project is located at Meghadrigedda reservoir in Visakhapatnam. It is being financed by the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) through a grant received from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
The plant is being built with 8,970 numbers of ZNShine frameless solar modules, occupying 0.005 sq. km of the water surface out of 5 sq.km of the reservoir area.
