Vikram Solar claimed a 140-mw solar plant project from NTPC Ltd. The location selected for the project is Bilhaur, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh.
A 700-acre area has been allotted for the project, and the solar plant is expected to successfully satisfy the electricity demand of the area. NTPC has plans to install a 225-mw solar plant in Uttar Pradesh and Vikram Solar has been selected to commission the first allotment of 140 mw. The project is expected to be completed by September 2020 (as per tender guidelines).
Kuldeep Jain, COO- EPC, Vikram Solar, shared on the occasion, “Vikram Solar has had a long standing business relation with NTPC. Previously, we have handled 50 mw solar plant project in Mandsaur, MP and 130 MW solar project in Bhadla, Rajasthan for NTPC. And, I am very glad to say that Vikram’s focus towards innovation, quality, performance, customer centricity and execution has help us to win this project.”
He added, “Claiming the LoI for this 140-mw project is a triumph for Vikram Solar, and we feel honoured to yet again have the opportunity to support NTPC in contributing to Indian solar revolution through green energy adoption. On behalf of team Vikram, I express my admiration towards NTPC’s consistent effort towards solar growth, and I am hopeful that our partnership will continue to support India in providing Power for All.”
