Solar developer Emmvee PV Power has announced the completion of the first 5MW of a 20MW PV power plant in Hindupur, in the eastern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.
The initial stage of 5MW is expected to become operational within the next few months.
The entire project is under construction and the company is planning to connect an additional 10MW to the grid by the end of this month.
Emmvee has provided EPC and O&M services for the initial segment of this power plant including the extra 10MW.
The company said the addition of 10MW will help to generate 25MW of electricity annually, removing 23,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
The project is being constructed under the India’s Open Access programme, which provides long-term power purchase agreements with various industrial clients.
D.V. Manjunatha, Emmvee group’s founder and managing director, said: “It is a milestone for Emmvee to commission a 5MW Solar PV Power plant in India and it gives us great pride. Being a long-term player in the solar industry this project has shown our technical expertise and commitment to turnkey projects.”
