Hindalco switches on 25 MW solar plant for self-consumption


Aditya Birla Group company Hindalco Industries Ltd has commissioned a 25 MW captive solar power plant at its Mahan aluminum smelting unit in the Singrauli district of Madhya Pradesh. It will use the power generated for internal needs and aluminum production at the Mahan unit.

The plant is expected to produce around 55 million units of electricity per annum.

Hindalco targets to become net-zero by 2050. It recently signed a commercial arrangement with renewables developer Greenko to set up 375 MW to 400 MW of “captive” solar and wind power capacity. The project will supply power to its Aditya Aluminium smelter in Odisha.
