NTPC’s 56 MW Kawas solar project now fully operational


State-run power generator NTPC has declared that its 56 MW Kawas solar project in Gujarat is now fully operational, following the recent commissioning of the final 21 MW phase.

The Kawas solar project includes 33 MW of ground-mounted arrays and 23 MW of floating solar installations within the existing NTPC Kawas gas-based power station.

NTPC developed the project under the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy’s (MNRE) Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSU) Scheme Phase II. It won the project through viability gap funding in an auction conducted by Solar Energy Corp. of India (SECI) in 2019.

Earlier this month, NTPC declared the full commissioning of its 250 MW Kolyat solar project in Bikaner district, as well as the 296 MW Fatehgarh solar project, both in Rajasthan.
