Hartek Solar bags contract for 22MW floating solar project in northern India
Hartek Solar has secured a contract from SJVN Green Energy to build a 22MW floating solar project in India’s northern state of Himachal Pradesh.
Once commissioned, the project – to be built at Nangal Pond in District Bilaspur – will be North India’s largest floating solar power plant, according to developers.
The scope of the project includes complete engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of the floating solar plant, with 15MW AC and comprehensive operation and maintenance.
The project is expected to have a DC capacity of approximately 22MW and generate 33 million units of power output per year, according to Hartek Solar, the renewable and solar EPC business unit of the Hartek Group.
This is expected to significantly contribute to India’s decarbonization efforts and help the country achieve its renewable target of installing 500GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030.
The floating solar project is also expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 763,000 tonnes annually, making a significant contribution to the nation-building effort.
Commenting on the project, Hartek Solar’s founder and CEO, Simarpreet Singh, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this project, which is a significant step towards decarbonization and meeting India’s renewable target of 2030. We are committed to providing clean energy solutions that contribute to the nation-building effort and are proud to be a part of this project.”
Hartek Solar is among the top 10 rooftop solar EPC companies in India and is also one of the largest players in the floating solar segment. The company also recently commissioned a 2MW floating solar plant for CREST in Chandigarh.
SJVN Green Energy is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SJVN. SJVN, formerly known as Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam, is an Indian public sector undertaking involved in hydroelectric power generation and transmission.
