India’s largest utility NTPC has commissioned the 250MW Mandsaur solar project in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, according to a Bombay Stock Exchange filing.

The project, officially completed on 1 September, is split in to five separate 50MW plants. Back in April, NTPC said the project would require an estimated investment of INR15.03 billion (US$225 million). In the same month, Indian state-owned power equipment manufacturer Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) won an EPC contract from NTPC for at least 50MW of the Mandsaur project.

NTPC’s cumulative installed capacity now stands at 44,460MW, while NTPC Group has 51,676MW installed.
