Tata Power Renewable Energy claims to be one of India’s largest renewable energy companies and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power. The project was executed by Tata Power Solar Systems Limited, an EPC arm of Tata Power within the stipulated timeline of 3.5 months.

Tata Power Renewable Energy said that its team of engineers carried out synchronized activities and mobilized the workforce within a short span to ensure timely execution of the project. The result was that within the first two months of the project, the team completed all the CMCS, Switchyard, and PV area’s civil activities. In the next one-and-a-half months also managed to complete AC readiness of all the blocks with 60 MWp of MMS installation and 50 MWp of module installation.

Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power, said on the development, “Commissioning of MSEDCL project in such a short timeframe is a testimony to Tata Power’s extraordinary project execution capabilities. It would help Maharashtra contribute to India’s ambitious renewable energy ambitions by increasing the share of renewable energy in the state’s overall energy mix.”

With this addition of 100 MW, the renewables capacity in operation for Tata Power now stands at 3,620 MW with 2,688 MW of Solar and 932 MW of Wind. Tata Power’s total Renewable capacity is 4,920 MW including 1,300 MW of Renewable projects under various stages of implementation.

A day ago, India’s hydropower giant National Hydro Electric Power Corporation Private Limited (NHPC), signed a pact with Tata Power Solar Systems to develop a 300 MW solar project under CPSU Scheme under Phase-II. Tata Power has also collaborated with another sister company, Tata Motors, for the holistic development of a 7 MWp solar rooftop project at the passenger vehicle manufacturing facility of the company in Pune.
