Tata Power announced today that its arm Tata Power Solar Systems has received the Letter of Award (LoA) to set up a 300 MW solar project for state-owned coal miner NLC India in Rajasthan. The project value is INR 1,755 crore ($213.27 million).
The project will be located at Barsingar in the Bikaner district. It is expected to generate more than 750 million units of electricity and reduce 6 lakh tons of CO2 annually.
NLC is developing the project under the CPSU scheme that mandates the use of domestically produced cells and modules. Tata Power Solar Systems’ scope is engineering, procurement, and construction. It will handle the complete project execution from design to commissioning and the evacuation system up to the delivery point (220 kV side of pooling sub-station). It will also provide operation and maintenance support for three years post-commissioning.
The project is set for commissioning within 18 months from the award of contract.
With this win, Tata Power Solar Systems’ total portfolio will touch 11.5 GWp. As of date, its total order book stands at about INR 17,000 crore.
