Integrated renewable energy power producer Amp Energy India has secured repeat order from Tata Hitachi, a leading construction machinery provider in India, to set up an onsite solar power unit at its facility in Kharagpur, West Bengal.

Amp Energy already has an operational 5MW solar project supplying power to Tata Hitachi at its factory premises in Kharagpur since 2018.

With this project, Amp Energy has now expanded the capacity to 10.5 MW making it the largest behind-the-meter project in Eastern India.

The Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Amp for procurement of solar power is for 25 years and is expected to generate 7,150 MWh of green energy in a year, equivalent to reducing 5,055 MT of carbon emissions annually.

The solar plant was commissioned on November 11, 2020 and the project execution was managed by following all compliances placed to manage COVID-19 situation in India.  

Commenting on the development, Pinaki Bhattacharyya, MD and CEO, Amp Energy India, said “Tata Hitachi is the best demonstration project of Amp’s Programmatic Approach of building sustainable partnerships through project types and geographies. We are supplying solar power to them through open access in Karnataka and behind-the-meter in West Bengal. This repeat order from them is a testimonial to our service quality and deliverability. This partnership will ensure that the growth in the construction sector is on the back of solid ecosystem of solar power generation and demand in India.”

Tata Hitachi is a joint venture (JV) company between Tata Motors and Hitachi Construction Machinery of Japan. It’s product line-up includes wide range of excavators, rigid dump trucks, wheel loaders and backhoe loaders. The company has two manufacturing facilities at Dharwad – Karnataka and Kharagpur – West Bengal.
