Hindustan Salts, BHEL may tie-up for mega solar plant

Government-owned Hindustan Salts (HSL), which manufactures common salt, is looking to partner Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL), the country's largest power equipment firm, to install what is being touted as Asia's largest solar power generation facility on around 15,000 acres of unutilised salt pan land in Rajasthan.

The initial feasibility study for the proposed 2,500 mw solar generation integrated plant is slated to get underway shortly. The proposal, being spearheaded by the Ministry of Heavy Industries, under whose administrative control both the state-owned enterprises come, also envisages development of another 23,000 acres of land in Gujarat for harnessing a combination of solar and wind power capacity adding up to another 4,000 mw.

The plan to install the solar and wind power plants to generate electricity on the land owned by HSL, according to the ministry, will help in fetching revenues for both the companies. BHEL manufactures PV modules at its plant in Bangalore. It produces both mono and poly silicon-based cells and modules from wafers procured mostly from Japan.
