Tata Power Renewable Energy commissions its 300 MW solar project in Gujarat

Tata Power Renewables Energy Limited (TPREL), a Tata Power wholly-owned subsidiary, has commissioned a 300 MW project in Dholera, Gujarat. According to the company, it is the largest single-axis solar tracker system in India. Annually, the project will generate 774 MUs of electricity. It will also lower carbon emissions by roughly 704,340 MT per year. A total of 873,012 monocrystalline PV modules have been used for this project.

Tata Power managed the installation of a tailored system based on the geographical location and land conditions. The installation covers approximately 1,320 acres, which is divided into six plots of 220 acres each. Due to very heavy rains, the 33 kV cable trench was submerged in water during the construction period, weather conditions at the site were unpredictable. The execution team, on the other hand, used floaters to lay HT cables at the site. In addition, instead of using traditional subterranean laying, precast ballasts were used to lay power lines 500 mm above the ground.

In February 2022, The State Bank of India entered into a solar project finance deal with Tata Power Solar Systems. The lender also established a dedicated centralised processing cell, known as the ‘Surya Shakti Cell,’ in Mumbai’s Ballard Estate. All loan applications for solar projects (capacity up to 1 MW) supplied from across the country would be processed by the cell, which would be installed by both business entities and households.
