Engineering firm ABB has commissioned five sub-stations to integrate 648 MW solar project at Kamuthi in Tamil Nadu to the national transmission grid.
The project was awarded by independent power producer Adani Group in 2015 and completed on schedule, the company said in a BSE filing today. According to statement, the solar photovoltaic project – made up of five plants in a single location – is the largest of its kind in the world. The 360 MW from the solar project is currently grid-connected, and at full capacity this facility will account for nearly 10 per cent of the country’s current solar potential of around seven gigawatts (GW). Tamil Nadu is also pursuing a solar policy which aims at solar generation capacity addition of 3,000 MW.
