Indian EPC company Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has commissioned India’s largest floating solar PV plant. Located at NTPC Simhadri in Andhra Pradesh, the 25 MW project covers an area of 100 acres. Besides producing clean power, the project will also reduce water evaporation by providing shade to the covered area.
In view of the coastal location this module array has been designed to withstand gusts of wind up to 180 km/hr. BHEL’s scope of work in the project included design, engineering, procurement and construction and has been executed by the recently formed Solar Business Division. According to the company, BHEL’s portfolio of floating PV projects is the largest in the country with more than 45 MW projects commissioned and around 107 MW under execution.
