Vikram Solar commissions 200 MW solar project for APGENCO
Vikram Solar has commissioned a 200 MW solar power project for Andhra Pradesh Power Generation Corporation (APGENCO) that will power nearly 150,000 homes once connected to the grid. The plant, situated in district Anatapuramu, Andhra Pradesh, is segregated into two blocks of 100 MW each for better management and higher efficiency.
The project is spread across 1,000 acre (500 acre each for 100 MW) of undulated rocky terrain, and power will be evacuated at 33 KV level in two pooling substations of 33/220 KV capacity, which will further evacuate power to 220/400 KV main substation.
In the project, a total of 848,680 modules, ranging from 320 wp to 330 wp were installed. The project is expected to produce 446 MU energy annually and will reduce 210 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions in a year. Vikram Solar will also carry out Operation and Maintenance (O&M) of the plant for a period of 5 years from the date of commissioning.
