Tata powerThe Tata Power Renewables Energy Ltd. unit. (TPREL) of Tata Power Renewables Energy Ltd. (TPREL) has commissioned a 300 MW solar project in the Indian state of Gujarat.

The solar power plant, located in Dholera, is India’s largest photovoltaic project with single axis trackers. It uses 873,012 monocrystalline photovoltaic modules and spans 1,320 acres. The project is divided into six parcels of 220 acres each.

TPREL, through Tata Power’s EPC unit, Tata Power Solar Systems, completed the project on schedule, despite challenges posed by extreme weather conditions and Covid-19. Tata Power customized the installation according to local conditions.

“Weather conditions at the site during the construction period were unpredictable due to very heavy rain which resulted in the 33 kV cable trench being submerged in water. However, with the help of floats, the execution team laid HV cables on site,” said Tata Power. “Prefabricated ballasts were also used to lay power cables 500mm above ground instead of conventional underground laying. such as weather, machinery and labor movement, the project has been successfully commissioned.”

With the addition of 300 MW, Tata Power’s operational renewable energy capacity reached 3.4 GW, including 2,468 MW of solar power and 932 MW of wind power. Its total renewable energy portfolio is 5,020 MW, including 1,620 MW of projects in various stages of implementation.
