Tata Power commissions 160MW AC solar project for NTPC


Tata Power Solar Systems Limited (Tata Power Solar), a solar manufacturing and EPC arm of Tata Power, today announced it has commissioned a 160MW AC solar project at Jetsar in Rajasthan.

The project was won by state-run power producer NTPC under tariff-based competitive bidding conducted by the Solar Energy Corporation of India in 2019. Tata Power Solar System developed the project for NTPC under the EPC model.

The installation uses around 6,75,000 monocrystalline PV modules and is expected to produce 387 million units of energy per year.

“The Jetsar project was completed within a period of 15 months, which is a testament to Tata Power Solar’s exceptional project execution capabilities. The project engineers worked under tough climatic conditions, including the movement of men and machinery to the project site,” Tata Power stated.
Tata Power Solar’s project scope included engineering, design, supply, construction, erection,
testing, operations and maintenance, and commissioning.

Founded in 1989, Tata Power Solar was originally formed as a joint venture between Tata Power and British Petroleum Solar (BP Solar). Headquartered in Bangalore, it now operates independently as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power.

Tata Power Solar is one of the largest solar manufacturers in India, with a production capacity of 580MW of modules and 530MW cells. It has a portfolio of more than 8.3GW of ground-mount utility-scale, over 950MW of rooftop and distributed generation projects across the country, and has installed over 65,000 solar water pumps in India.
