Tatva Group arm Rawmate Solutions has commissioned the first-of-a-kind large scale solar community irrigation project in village Borenda of Durg district in the state of Chhattisgarh.
The project was conceptualised and executed under the guidance of the Chhattisgarh Renewable Energy Development Agency (CREDA).
This is a unique project as it taps the free flowing and perennially available water from the river Kharun and distributes it across 100 hectares and directly benefits 217 beneficiary farmers. This system is powered by 100 HP (20HP*5nos) pump sets, and has a pipeline distribution network of close to 21 kms.
This novel project came as boon to the farmers of the region who were till now completely dependent on rain fed agriculture. The project was completed at an approximate cost of Rs 3.3 crore and was recently inaugurated by Bhupesh Baghel, Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh.
While discussing about the project, K S Khurana, Partner- Tatva Group, said that, “the execution of the project was not easy, as there were significant challenges that were overcome on this journey, such as - COVID 19, followed by the lockdown and incessant monsoons were all elements that threatened to derail the project, but driven by passion and persistence, the project was commissioned successfully.”
He also added that, “the company has also been further mandated by CREDA to execute 3 more such projects across the state, where work is currently ongoing, and two of these projects are in the Bastar region of Chhattisgarh. These projects shall ring a transformational change in the lives of the farmers.”
Meanwhile, Rawmate Solutions, founded in 2011, is one of the leading system integrators in the state. It also operates granite quarries spread over 130 acres across 5 states of the granite rich deccan plateau region of India.
