State-owned power producer NTPC has switched online an aggregate 80MW floating solar capacity out of the overall 100MW planned at its Ramagundam Thermal Power Plant in Telangana.
The company reached the milestone with a recent addition of 42.5MW, following commissioning of 17.5 MW in the first part and 20MW in the second part.
The 100MW plant, upon the raw water reservoir area of NTPC Ramagundam Thermal Power Plant, is being set up by BHEL on an EPC basis.
In addition to this, NTPC has a 25MW floating solar plant operational at its Simhadri thermal power station in Andhra Pradesh. The company is also exploring floating solar potential at its Tanda Thermal Power Station in Uttar Pradesh.
