Tata Solar Commissions 66 MW Solar Project for Vibrant Energy

Tata Power Solar Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power, has commissioned an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) project of 66MW for Vibrant Energy.

The firm claims that the project will produce 110,029 units of energy annually. The project is spread over 191 acres comprising 1,27,268 solar modules and has been completed within a nine-month period.

The project required Tata Power Solar to carve out a unique execution plan by deploying multiple teams to ensure smooth functioning and commissioning of the project at all levels. The team established two-level Pooling Sub- Station the undulating terrain, and the hard rock land was earthed to ensure the structural stability of the entire EHV (Extra High Voltage) system.

Materials were directly unloaded at the workplace to avoid delays caused due to multiple shifting and to enable immediate regularization. Along with this, insurance of modules was done before commissioning.

With the commissioning of this project, the company’s total utility-scale solar project portfolio touches 9.7GWp.

Speaking on the commissioning of the project, Srini Viswanathan, CEO, Vibrant Energy, said, “This project is a testament to our commitment towards decarbonization and sustainable development. We are honoured to partner with Tata Power Solar for EPC of 66 MW project that has been commissioned in a record 9-month period.”
