The Indian engineering, procurement and construction contractor has secured orders to build two solar plants of 200 MW each in Gujarat. It has also won significant contracts for power transmission and distribution related work in Rajasthan, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, and Arabian country Qatar.
The new devices feature efficiencies ranging from 20.7-21%. The panels are said to be compatible with a wide range of slates and tiles, include special fixings for different batten thicknesses, and achieve the highest fire rating and wind resistance without modifications to the roof.
The solar project—developed in the Amravati District of Maharashtra—uses 60,660 numbers of 330Wp polycrystalline PV modules and is expected to generate more than 78,600 MWh of power annually.
The new solar capacity addition during the third quarter of FY 2020-21 was way above 928 MW installed in the previous quarter (July-September).
The plant, situated in Tamil Nadu, is one of India’s largest group captive solar plants serving a single client. It is expected to generate over 120 million units of electricity annually.
Tata Power, TEQ Green Power, and Vena Energy Renewables Urja have approached the Delhi-based Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (APTEL) seeking interim relief against the Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission’s order allowing retendering of the awarded solar capacity.
For developers to close the emerging gap as the market becomes more competitive – and, crucially, build projects that perform to investors’ expectations in the long term – they need to not only develop better understanding of the factors influencing project performance but also take steps to adopt advances made in other established solar markets worldwide in the use of solar data.
A new report highlights key investors finding opportunity in India’s US$500-billion renewable energy infrastructure development and various factors driving these investments.
