Everything About India’s Largest Floating Solar Plant In Telangana’s Ramagundam

After India’s Largest Artificial Water Body, World’s Largest Startup Incubator T-Hub…Telangana is now home to India’s largest Floating Solar Power Plant. Yes, Solar power plant gurinchi vinnam kani floating solar power plant enti? How is it different from others? What is so unique about this Largest Floating Solar Power Plant In India? Anedi ippudu telusukundam padandi.

1. The future is solar power and e-vehicles, and India started its baby steps to make as many solar based renewable energy plants in the country. In recent times, India achieved 5th global position in solar power deployment by surpassing Italy with just 5 large solar plants.

2. Focussing on more Solar plants in the country, NTPC – National Thermal Power Corporation came up with the idea of floating solar power plants in the country. Hence they started off with the first of its kind ‘Floating Solar Power Plant’ based in Ramagundam of Telangana.

3. NTPC’s Reservoir At Ramagundam Is Now Home To 100-megawatt (MW) floating solar power photovoltaic project commissioned by National Thermal Power Corporation & BHEL.

4. Situated On NTPC’s Reservoir of Ramagundam and Spread over 500 acres ,this solar power plant generates 100 MegaWatts of energy.

5. NTPC and Bharat Heavy Electronics Limited spent almost 450+ crores to build or set up this huge floating solar plant.

6. What makes this floating solar power plant unique is, it doesn’t generate much heat compared to solar plants based on land. Also, it reduces water evaporation compared to hydropower and saves water.

7. Floating Solar Panels were placed on polythene material and the entire floating system was anchored through special high-modulus polyethylene ropes to the dead weights (concrete blocks) placed in the balancing reservoir bed.

8. This floating solar panel is designed as an environment friendly one as it saves water evaporation and saves 32.5 lakh cubic meters per year on NTPC Ramagundam reservoir. Also this solar project avoids 1,65,000 tons of coal consumption and 2,10,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
