Vikram Solar Bags 1 MW Floating Solar Project
Vikram Solar, one of India’s leading module manufacturer and a prominent rooftop solar & EPC solutions provider has bagged the project order for a 1 MW Floating solar plant for Hindustan Zinc Limited. The plant will be located at Ghosunda Dam, Near Chittorgarh, Rajasthan. This would be Vikram Solar’s 2nd floating solar project after the company gave India its 1st floating solar plant in 2015 (located in Kolkata, West Bengal).
This project would be one of the first MW-scale Floating projects in India for the Indian Private sector. The floating plant will contribute to saving water evaporation loss, thus resulting in conservation of water, reduce the development of algae, maintaining cleanliness of the water, and will obviously save land space.
The installation will use Vikram Solar’s 330 Wp 72-cell ELDORA Polycrystalline modules. And, is expected to be commissioned by July 2019. The solar plant is expected to have an energy yield of 1993 MWh/year and would be able to power 1400 houses/year.
