NTPC installed India’s largest Floating Solar PV Plant at Kayamkulam in Kerala

State-run NTPC on Friday said it has introduced India’s biggest floating solar based photovoltaic (PV) plant at Rajiv Gandhi Combined Cycle Power Plant (RGCCPP) at Kayamkulam in Kerala.

“A 100 kWp (kilowatt peak) floating solar based PV plant, the biggest of its kind in India as on date, indigenously created as a piece of ‘Make In India’ activity, was introduced by A K Jha, Director (Technical) NTPC in nearness of V B Fadnavis, RED (SR), R K Srivastava, ED (NETRA) and other senior authorities of NTPC and different offices, at RGCCPP Kayamkulam, Kerala,” the organization said in a press release today.

The framework was introduced by Swelect Energy Systems Ltd, Chennai with support from NETRA and NTPC Kayamkulam station in a limited ability to focus 22 days.

Such frameworks are quick rising as a contrasting option to ordinary ground mounted PV frameworks which are land serious, it said.

It has different advantages like saving water through decrease of vanishing, expanded era because of cooling impact on the boards, diminished establishment time and so forth and could be introduced on saline water condition.

Establishment capability of such sort of frameworks in India is immense due to plenitude of water bodies, inside NTPC, the potential is around 800 MWp in different stores in existing stations. Especially in Kerala, because of accessibility of water bodies and absence of nearness of enough land, this sort of framework has an awesome potential, it said.

NTPC has as of now began chipping away at scaling up such kind of framework for MW scale establishment, it included.
