New Delhi: Tata Power Solar, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power, on Wednesday said that it has commissioned an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) project of 66MW for Vibrant Energy.
According to the company, this project will produce 110,029 units of energy annually. The installation will lead to a reduction of carbon emissions of up to 9 lakh tonnes. The project is spread over 191 acres comprising 1,27,268 solar modules and has been completed within a record nine-month period.
“Tata Power Solar and Vibrant Energy share the vision of leading innovation-driven renewable energy solutions in the country. Tata Power Solar carved out a unique execution plan by deploying multiple teams to ensure smooth functioning and commissioning of the project at all levels. The team established a two-level pooling sub-station undulating terrain, and the hard rock land was earthed to ensure the structural stability of the entire EHV (Extra High Voltage) system,” Tata Power said in an official press release.
Materials were directly unloaded at the workplace to avoid delays caused due to multiple shifting and to enable immediate regularization. Along with this, insurance of modules was done before commissioning.
Commenting on the project commissioning Tata Power’s CEO & MD Dr Praveer Sinha said, “We consider the commissioning of this large EPC project for Vibrant Energy to be a significant accomplishment since it demonstrates our best-in-class project execution capabilities. We are sure that this project would set a new standard for industry collaboration and contribute towards India’s clean energy goals.”
Commenting on the partnership, Tata Power’s President (Renewables) Ashish Khanna said, “We are proud of the partnership with Vibrant Energy, it showcases the industry’s trust in us and our expertise in on-time project delivery. It also reinforces Tata Power Solar’s commitment to lead India’s transition towards a greener future through a strategic approach and operational excellence.”
With the commissioning of this project, the company’s total utility-scale solar project portfolio touches 9.7GWp.
Speaking on the commissioning of the project, Vibrant Energy CEO Srini Viswanathan said, “This project is a testament to our commitment towards decarbonization and sustainable development. We are honoured to partner with Tata Power Solar for EPC of 66 MW project that has been commissioned in a record nine-month period.”
