Larsen & Toubro wins 185MW/254MWh solar-plus-storage project in Bihar


Larsen & Toubro (L&T) announced today that it has won a domestic order to build a 185 MW grid-connected solar PV plant along with a 254 MWh  battery energy storage system (BESS). The solar PV plant will be located at Kajra in the Lakshisarai district of Bihar.

L&T stated that the BESS will enable storage of solar energy during low-demand period and discharge when the demand peaks. In addition, it will help smoothening the fluctuations in generation, frequency regulation and voltage support. It comes with black start capability to the grid that will facilitate quick re-energization after an outage.

A Ravindran, senior vice president & head of Renewable Strategic Business Group, Power Transmission & Distribution (PT&D) vertical of Larsen & Toubro, said: “This is a welcome addition to our renewable EPC portfolio of 18 GWp cumulative capacity, comprising solar and wind generation projects already commissioned and in the making. On the battery energy storage system front, we handle more than 1.5 GWh of storage capacity. This rich experience has made us the EPC partner of choice for developers globally.”
