UP’s largest solar project commissioned in Kanpur

Vikram Solar has announced the completion of an 85 MW solar plant project for NTPC in the district of Kanpur Nagar. The project combines Vikram Solar’s recently commissioned 140 MW project for India’s largest power utility at the same location. The resulting 225 MW cumulative capacity project becomes the largest solar project at a single location in the northern state. The first part capacity of 70 MW of the photovoltaic (PV) project was commissioned in March. The solar project is spread across 400 acres and uses about 350,000 solar modules manufactured by Vikram Solar and includes a 33/132 kV switchyard. The project is expected to yield 200 million units (MU) of energy.
