The innovative project is divided into two segments, each with an impressive array island capacity of 5.44 MWp. This project stands out for its utilization of 19,936 domestically produced Hydrelio® aiR 1440 floats and Jinergy PV panels installed in a 4-row configuration with a pure south tilt.
The floating solar plant, covering a vast area of 42 acres, is designed to make the most of the available space, with over 19 acres dedicated to float placement. This equates to nearly 45 percent coverage of the water body, making it a remarkable feat in harnessing renewable energy.
Ciel and Terre India's extensive portfolio includes 260 MWp projects spread across various states, including Kerala, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, and Madhya Pradesh.
In other developments, in October 2023, NTPC Limited issued a request for proposals (RfPs) for the commissioning of a 56 MW floating solar project, which will be situated at NTPC's north Karanpura thermal power station in Jharkhand. This move is indicative of the growing interest in floating solar technology in the region.
The completion of the Tata Steel floating solar plant and these upcoming projects signify a positive trend in the adoption of renewable energy sources in the country and are expected to have a significant impact on the energy landscape in India.
