India’s largest integrated solar company, Tata Power Solar has successfully commissioned a 100 MW solar project for NTPC in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh.

Aligning with the Government’s ‘Make in India’ mission, this is the biggest solar project commissioned using domestically manufactured solar cells and modules.

The plant is expected to generate nearly 160 million units (kWh) of energy per year and help offset approximately 110,000 tonnes of CO2 in the first year.

Tata Power Solar delivered the project in record 80% of stipulated timelines, and nearly 3 months ahead of the stringent schedule. Key highlights of the project were the innovative design of Balance-of-System (BoS) and cabling, along with optimized selection of evacuation systems.

“Today, pace of delivery and quality have become crucial benchmarks in the industry and we are especially proud to have delivered a project of this scale in record time. By bringing together our core strengths in domestic manufacturing and EPC services over the last 25 years, this 100 MW plant is the largest project commissioned by us to date. We hope to continue to build on our capabilities and deliver over expectations to proficient customers like NTPC,” Ashish Khanna, ED & CEO, Tata Power Solar.

Built over a 500 acre site, the land contained natural streams and hillocks which were untouched by the plant to maintain the natural ecosystem. World-class safety being the company’s strength, Tata Power Solar delivered the plant with a robust safety management system and 1.3 million safe man hours put in.

Apart from a highly experienced team at Tata Power Solar, more than 50 local people were provided employment at the site.

“Given our ambitious target for green power, we were
aware that our requirement of rigorous timelines and cost-efficiency was a challenging one. We thank Tata Power Solar for their experience and commitment in delivering this large scale project ahead of strict timelines,”  A.K. Jha, Director (Technical), NTPC.

With over 25 years of experience, Tata Power Solar has commissioned over 250 MW of ground-mount utility scale projects across India.

Their partnership with NTPC too has been long-term, having delivered their 50 MW flagship project using domestically made cells and modules in Rajgarh, Madhya Pradesh in 2014.
