Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) has commissioned a 3MW solar plant in the union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli for the region’s power distribution corporation.

The PV power plant at Velugam was recently inaugurated by prime minister Modi and is the latest project to be executed on a turnkey basis by the company.

As a union territory, solar deployment has proved to be negligible in Dadra and Nagar Haveli as attention is directed towards larger states with more land availability.

BHEL is said to currently be working on completion of around 180MW of solar projects for a range of customers. The company provides EPC services for both off-grid and grid interactive solar developments throughout India, working across ground-mount and rooftop projects.

Most recently it announced a partnership with the Indian Railway for a 2MW rooftop system to be installed at Diesel Modernisation Works.
