NTPC has announced that it has commissioned 20 megawatt (MW) of Bhadla Solar Power Project in Rajasthan.

Early this month NTPC installed India’s Largest Floating Solar PV Plant in Kerala. The 100 kWp floating solar PV generation plant, largest of its kind in India, was indigenously developed as a part of ‘Make in India’ initiative, at Rajiv Gandhi Combined Cycle Power Plant (RGCCPP) in Kerala’s Kayamkulam district, the company said in a statement.

Solar panels mounted on floating boards that hold them in place saves land usage and has been found to be efficient than the ones installed on land.

These floating solar PV platforms were indigenously developed by NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance, the R&D arm of NTPC Ltd, in collaboration with Central Institute of Plastic Engineering & Technology (CIPET), Chennai and a patent has been applied for.

NTPC has planned capacity addition of about 1,000 MW through renewable resources by 2017. Towards this, NTPC has already commissioned 310 MW solar PV projects.

The 50 MW Solar PV at Anantpur in Andhra Pradesh, 260 MW Solar PV at Bhadla in Rajasthan and 250 MW Solar PV at Mandsar in Madhya Pradesh and 8 MW Small Hydro Projects are under implementation, as per the company’s portal.

NTPC intends to become a 130 GW company by 2032 with a diversified fuel mix and a 600 billion units company in terms of generation. The company wants share of renewable energy (including hydro) to be 28 per cent.
