MEGA Structure: India’s Solar Power House ||Audio in Hindi ||
Solar power in India is a fast developing industry. The country’s solar installed capacity reached 26 GW as of 30 September 2018. India expanded its solar-generation capacity 8 times from 2,650 MW on 26 May 2014 to over 20 GW as on 31 January 2018.The 20 GW capacity was initially targeted for 2022 but the government achieved the target four years ahead of schedule.The country added 3 GW of solar capacity in 2015-2016, 5 GW in 2016-2017 and over 10 GW in 2017-2018, with the average current price of solar electricity dropping to 18% below the average price of its coal-fired counterpart.
Kamuthi Solar Power Project is a photovoltaic power station spread over an area of 2,500 acres (10 km2) in Kamuthi, Ramanathapuram district, 90 km from Madurai, in the state of Tamil Nadu, India.The project was commissioned by Adani Power.With a generating capacity of 648 MWp at a single location, it is the world’s sixth largest (as of 2018) solar park.
ABB commissioned five sub-stations to connect the solar park with the National Grid on 13 June 2016.The Kamuthi Solar Power Project was completed on 21 September 2016 with an investment of around ₹4,550 crore (equivalent to ₹47 billion or US$650 million in 2017).
The solar plant consists of 2.5 million solar modules, 380,000 foundations, 27,000 metres of structures, 576 inverters, 154transformers, and almost 6,000 km of cables.Construction of the structures needed to mount the solar panels required 30,000 tonnes of galvanised steel.
Around 8,500 workers installed an average of 11 MW of capacity per day to complete the project within 8 months
