India’s largest floating solar power plant: The project is projected to cost more than 3000 crores.
The world’s largest floating solar power plant is going to be built at Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh: A floating solar power plant will be erected in the central state of Madhya Pradesh. It is expected to create 600 Megawatts of power by 2022-23, making it the world’s largest floating solar plant. The project is expected to cost more than 3000 crores.
The Omkareshwar Dam is being constructed on the Narmada River. This is our hydel project, and we generate energy from water, but it is spread out over roughly 100 square kilometres, and there is a vast body of water where the water level remains normal “Sanjay Dubey, Principal Secretary of the Renewable Energy Department, said ANI.
Dubey further stated that the change in water level in the area was minor, making it a good site.
“We will have a 300 MW PPA. So we gave a little bit of leverage, perhaps a little more or less depending on the requirement, so instead of 300, we are doing PPA in the first phase of 278 MW “He said.
Telangana is home to India’s largest floating solar power installation.
The largest floating solar power project in India is currently operational. With effect from July 1, NTPC declared commercial operation of the final portion capacity of 20 MW of the 100 MW Ramagundam Floating Solar PV Project in Ramagundam, Telangana. The commercial operation of floating solar capacity in the Southern Region increased to 217 MW with the completion of the 100-MW Solar PV Project at Ramagundam.
