Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has increased the capacity available in its tender for grid-connected floating solar at Rihand Dam in Uttar Pradesh from 100MW to 150MW.

The original 100MW tender saw a delay in the uploading of the RfS documents, but SECI has now come out with the higher capacity.

The 3x50MW floating solar projects will come up at the dam, which is also known as Govind Ballabh Pant Sagar Reservoir, in Sonbhadra District.

SECI has previously consulted on 10GW of floating PV across India.

PV Tech has also published a detailed anlysis of Adtech's 500kW floating PV system in Kerala, a proof-of-concept system that has paved the way for more such projects across India.
