Chinese plant to provide solar energy to seven lakh households in Andhra
New Delhi [India] June 16 (ANI): One of the biggest solar power plants developed by SB Energy with a capacity to provide clean electricity for over 700,000 Indian households, has become operational in Andhra Pradesh within three months of commissioning.
Commissioned on March 29 this year, the plant was designed and developed by SB Energy using the latest technology of module cleaning, site maintenance and security from global best practices.
This 455 MW DC solar power plant is a joint venture between the SoftBank Group, Bharti Enterprises and Foxconn Technology Group and has used PV modules of the China-based company Trina Solar.
For Trina Solar, a global leader in photovoltaic modules, solutions and services, this was the largest single order that the company has ever closed in India. Founded in 1997 as a PV system integrator, Trina Solar today drives smart energy together with installers, distributors, utilities and developers worldwide.
"We are proud to be the trusted partner of SB Energy for its first large-scale solar project in Andhra Pradesh," said Jifan Gao, Chairman and CEO of Trina Solar in a release.
He further said, "This is part of our continued effort to contribute to India's national target of 100GW of solar generation capacity by 2022. We are committed to working with SB Energy in meeting the country's energy demands through clean sources and building a green and sustainable environment."
The PV modules supplied for this project were TALLMAX 72-cell polycrystalline panels. TALLMAX modules are recognised by industry professionals for their proven historical performance in the field and the high quality standard. It is one of the industry's most trusted products for large-scale solar projects.
Recently, Numaligarh Refinery Limited (NRL), an Assam based oil refinery, had ordered Ujaas Energy for supply, installation, testing and commissioning of a 1Mwp solar power plant at NRL.
