NTPC Simhadri Head Diwakar Kaushik inaugurated the solar power plant. The plant will be the single largest floating solar PV project of Andhra Pradesh once commissioned. Two solar inverters each having a capacity of 2.5 MW each were made through control monitoring and control station (CMCS) through SCADA.
The 25 MW floating solar plant is being executive by BHEL on an EPC basis at a cost of Rs. 110 crore. The floating PV panels are tied through marine ropes from all corners and it is considered to be an engineering marvel due to the challenges faced during the design and implementation of unique anchoring and mooring system.
