BHEL has announced the commissioning of India’s largest floating solar photovoltaic plant in Andhra Pradesh. Located at NTPC Simhadri in Andhra Pradesh, the 25-megawatt floating SPV project covers an area of 100 acres, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) said. It did not disclose the cost of the project.

It said in a statement that BHEL has successfully commissioned India’s largest Floating Solar PV plant. Notably, with its unique state-of-the-art design, the project is an engineering marvel, created by BHEL. The scope of the work in the project included design, engineering, procurement and construction of the solar project, which has been executed by the company’s recently formed Solar Business Division.

It also said that the complex module array has been designed for the first time in India to withstand gusts of wind up to 180 km/hr. Given the coastal location of the project site that leads to severe corrosion, all the platform structures and other equipment have been made corrosion resistant, it added.
