Rays Experts, an engineering, procurement and construction contractor that specializes in plug-and-play infrastructure for solar projects, is set to complete the construction of the world’s largest solar park in India. The 9,000-acre site, in the Bikaner district of Rajasthan, will be equipped to host up to 3 GWp of solar projects.
The solar park will provide plug-and-play infrastructure for multiple solar projects. This will save time and money for developers, as land, transmission lines, and other infrastructure will be pre-arranged.
“The park is under development. All approvals are granted, and site development is going on. We are commissioning park infrastructure like transmission line and pooling station and facilitating individual solar project developers to commission their plants by connecting to the commissioned infrastructure. They can take the analogy with the Bhadla solar park [in Rajasthan] where several such projects are connected,” Rahul Gupta, Rays Experts’ managing director and chief executive officer, told pv magazine, noting that 70% of the land is already arranged. “The rest is in process.”
The park is purportedly India’s first and only 100% privately owned ultra-mega solar park to be connected to the central transmission system. All of India’s other major solar parks are partly or wholly owned by the government.
“Our solar park is a major factor in risk reduction for solar developers. They will not have to face the surprises after winning the project as infrastructure facilities such as land and transmission line will already be in control at the time of bidding,” said Gupta.
Rays Expert has established 2 GW of solar parks in the states of Rajasthan, Haryana, and Madhya Pradesh over the last decade. They include Corneight Solar Park, Kolayat Solar Park, Gajner Solar Park, Siwani Solar Park, and Mandsaur Solar Park.
Soltown Solar Park will soon join the list of the world’s largest solar parks.
