Greentech Lead India: Vikram Solar has set up
grid-connected 2 MW solar plant at Kharora in Chhattisgarh.
With the 2 MW solar project in Chhattisgarh, the total
solar power commissioning capacity of Vikram Solar has gone up to 8 MW.
The new plant is under the RPSSGP Scheme of Indian
Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) and Chhattisgarh Investment.
This solar photovoltaic grid-connected power plant in
Raipur will provide renewable solar energy solutions to remote and rural regions.
This plant will improve the energy consumption levels with its grid extension
reaching remote locations. It will provide backup power to people living in the
region in the event of a grid failure.
“We assure you of a better power supply from the plant
that will provide solar power to a lot of rural homes in order to meet India’s
growing energy needs. There is no other alternative than to focus on solar
energy,” said Fernando Arroyo, managing partner, Vikram Proener Projects.
Vikram Solar has already set up a 5 MW plant in Gujarat in December 2011. It is
sponsored by Konark Gujarat PV. This was followed by a second power plant, of 1
MW capacity, launched in Rourkela, Orissa which was sponsored by Molisati
Vinimay. A third initiative for 1 MW will be with Jay Iron & Steel at
Other projects in the pipeline are in Uttaranchal,
Rajasthan and Gujarat, as well as spread over many other states in India.
Vikram Proener, the EPC division of Vikram Solar, has added a multiple of
similar EPC projects amounting to 100 MW. It has further plans of expansion in
the near future, with a clear mandate to reduce global carbon emissions.
Vikram Solar’s manufacturing facility spreads over 40,000
sq ft area at Falta, Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in West Bengal, with an annual
power production capacity of 100 MW.
