National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC) has recently installed India’s largest floating Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Plant at Rajiv Gandhi Combined Cycle Power Plant (RGCCPP) at Kayamkulam in Kerala.
The plant was inaugurated by A K Jha, Director (Technical) NTPC in presence of V B Fadnavis, RED (SR), R K Srivastava, ED (NETRA) and other senior officials of NTPC and other agencies, at RGCCPP Kayamkulam, Kerala.
The 100 kWp floating solar generation plant has been indigenously developed as a part of ‘Make in India’ initiative.
The Solar panels are mounted on floating boards that hold them in place. Installing solar panels in water bodies saves land as well as are more efficient than the ones installed on land.
These floating platforms were indigenously developed by NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance, the R&D arm of NTPC in collaboration with Central Institute of Plastic Engineering & Technology (CIPET), Chennai and a patent has been applied for.
The system was installed by Swelect Energy Systems Ltd, Chennai with support from NETRA & NTPC Kayamkulam station in a short span of 22 days.
