According to reports, diversified Adani Group announced the commissioning of country’s largest 40 mw solar power plant in Kutch district Gujarat. For India’s largest private thermal power producer, the Solar Power Plant marks Adani’s first big foray in the renewable energy sector. Going forward, Adani Group is planning to expand the capacity of this plant to 100 mw. The group is claiming to have commissioned country’s largest solar power plant in record time of 150 days starting from foundation stone laying to electricity generation.
“We are pleased to dedicate country’s largest solar plant to Nation today. We, at Adani, are committed to protect and encourage better use of natural resources of our country by implementing better technologies. The Solar plant and uses of Super Critical Technology in all of our Thermal Power Plants is a testimony of our commitment towards the environment,” said Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani. The solar power plant is using solar PV technology and has over 400,000 solar PV modules mounted on 21,600 structures, which are erected on 130,000 foundations.
The power generated from this solar plant will be evacuated through a 66 KV line linked to a substation in Netra, located 20 kms away from the project site. The project was awarded under Gujarat Solar Power policy of 2009
