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 of 2019. The solar plant is expected to have an energy yield of 1993 MWh/year and would be able to power approximately 1400 houses annually

Ravindra Goyal, Head- EPC Sales, Vikram Solar, said on the occasion, “We are honored to be chosen by Hindustan Zinc Limited to execute this project. As a leading solar EPC player, it is our pleasure to once again contribute to the Indian solar revolution in a pioneering way. We congratulate Hindustan Zinc Limited for taking a step towards green energy transition and we look forward to participating in more such innovative projects in the country.”

Vikram Solar recently concluded a 130 MW for NTPC at Bhadla, Rajasthan, 80 MW for GIPCL at Charanka, Gujarat, 40 MW for IL&FS at Kachaliya, Madhya Pradesh, and is known for its innovative projects and airport installations.
