India’s Veltoor Solar Project Gets World’s First Solar Plant Project Certificate

The certificate to Veltoor solar project confirms all relevant safety features of the solar park and demonstrates the technical compliance of the project with the globally recognized standards.

Adding another milestone to India’s solar power generation aspiration, Norwegian testing and risk management company DNV GL has issued world’s first solar power plant certificate to the Veltoor Solar Power plant in Telangana.

Developed by Chinese renewable energy provider, China Light and Power (CLP India) in collaboration with Suzlon Energy, the 100 MW project was commissioned phased manner in mid-2017.

In 2016, India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has announced the world’s largest renewable energy expansion programme, with the stated aim of reaching 175 GW of green power generation by 2022, including 100 GW of solar power.

Moreover, India is making good progress on these goals, increasing solar capacity by 370% in three years, making solar its fastest growing energy source.

The Veltoor solar project by CLP India Veltoor in the southern Indian state Telangana is one of the largest solar projects in the country.

The plant was developed by SE solar Ltd (SPV of Suzlon Energy Ltd and CLP India) and commissioned in phases starting mid-2017 and supplies energy to the Telangana Southern Power Distribution Company (TSPDCL).

The certificate confirms all relevant safety features of the solar park and demonstrates the technical compliance of the project with the globally recognized standards. Certification of the Veltoor Solar Project was carried out according to the service specification DNVGL SE 0078 ‘Project certification of photovoltaic power plants’.

This is the world’s first, and currently only, global guideline for certifying solar PV projects.
