Vikram Solar Bags 397.7 MWp Module Order From NTPC

The planned 30 GW solar park at Khavda, Gujarat is clearly going to be in the news for a long time. The latest is a significant project win for leading solar module maker Vikram Solar which has secured a landmark 397.7 MWp module supply order for NTPC Renewable Energy Limited.

Vikram Solar’s modules will power a significant portion of the massive 1,255 MW Khavda Solar Project in Gujarat. The order is for bifacial DCR modules offering a minimum capacity of 540 Wp and meet the stringent ALMM standards.

Commenting on the notable win, Gyanesh Chaudhary, Chairman & Managing Director of Vikram Solar, remarked, “This landmark order is a powerful testament to the enduring partnership between Vikram Solar and NTPC Renewable Energy Limited. Our successful execution of numerous solar projects for NTPC has fostered a deep trust, built on a shared commitment to excellence. As a pioneer leading India’s solar revolution, Vikram Solar remains unwavering in its pursuit of innovation and quality, always prioritizing our customers’ needs. This collaboration not only cements our industry leadership but also aligns perfectly with our vision to propel India towards a clean energy future. We look forward to making substantial contributions to the renewable energy sector, helping India become a global leader in sustainable practices”.

Headquartered in Kolkata, West Bengal, it is one of the largest PV module manufacturer in India with cumulative production capacity of 3.5 GW. Vikram Solar is a ‘Top Performer’ in PVEL’s PV module reliability scorecard and has been included in the Tier 1 solar PV modules manufacturer list of BloombergNEF.

The Khavda region will be seeing a huge addition of solar and hybrid projects in the next 24 months, as NTPC, Adani Green in particular, and other developers build large, utility scale projects in the region. With everything from solar, to wind  to Green Hydrogen production eventually planned in the region and its vicinity over the next 5 years, it is set to be a massive renewable hub in India, perhaps the largest one.
