• Adani inaugurates 100 MW solar power plant in Punjab

    Adani Enterprises Ltd today said it has inaugurated Punjab’s largest solar power plant of 100 megawatts (MW) at Sardargarh and Chughe Kalan, Bhatinda, with an investment of around Rs 640 crore, set by its subsidiary Adani Green Energy Ltd.

    The company said it is using top notch technology to set up the entire 100 MW solar plant project which has started commissioning almost six months ahead of schedule.

    “Indirect and direct employment opportunities were created for a total of around 300-400 personnel, who worked diligently to achieve this feat ahead of its time,” Adani said in a release.

    Adani further said the solar plant is not only the largest project in Punjab but will also prove to be the largest tracker-based solar project in the country.

    The technology used for setting up this plant includes Poly Crystalline Silicon PV Modules and Horizontal Single Axis Tracker (HSAT). This plant will be India’s biggest HSAT plant at a single location. The plant spreads over approximately 641 acres of land with the evacuation of 132 kV Balluana Substation through Double circuit 132 KV transmission line. The annual energy yield is expected to be approximately 88,000 Mwh/ annum.

    Apart from the 100 MW Solar Power Plant in Bhatinda, Adani has a 40 MW solar plant at Bitta, Gujarat and has also recently unveiled a 648 MW solar power project at Ramanathapuram district in Tamil Nadu which is the world’s largest solar power plant in a single location. Moreover the company has also signed a JV with the Rajasthan government to develop the country’s largest solar park in the state with 10,000 MW capacity. Darrin Walls Jersey
