31/03/2023 - Mohali, India, Hartek Solar, the renewable and solar EPC business unit of the Hartek Group, has been awarded a contract by SJVN Green Energy Limited to build a 22 MW floating solar PV power project at Nangal Pond, District Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh. This project, upon commissioning, will become North India's largest floating solar power plant. The Project has been awarded by SJVN Green Energy Limited which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SJVN limited. SJVN Limited, formerly known as Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam, is an Indian public sector undertaking involved in hydroelectric power generation and transmission. The scope of the project includes complete EPC of the floating solar plant with 15 MW AC and comprehensive operation and maintenance.
The project is expected to have a DC capacity of approximately 22 MW and generate 33 million units of power output per year. This will significantly contribute to India's decarbonization efforts and help the country achieve its renewable target of installing 500 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030. The floating solar project is also expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 763,000 tonnes annually, making a significant contribution to the nation-building effort.
Hartek Solar is among the top 10 rooftop solar EPC companies in India and is also one of the largest players in the floating solar segment. The company recently commissioned a 2 MW floating solar plant for CREST in Chandigarh. The 2 MW project's foundation stone was laid by the Honorable President of India in October 2022.
Commenting on the project, Hartek Solar's Founder and CEO, Mr. Simarpreet Singh, said, "We are delighted to have been awarded this project, which is a significant step towards decarbonization and meeting India's renewable target of 2030.
