Solar Power Project by NHPC

About NTPC

NHPC Limited has become the largest organisation for hydropower development in India, with capabilities to undertake all the activities from conceptualization to commissioning in relation to setting up of hydro projects. NHPC Limited has also diversified in the field of Solar & Wind power.

NHPC Limited presently has an installation base of 7071.2 MW from 24 power stations on ownership basis including projects taken up in Joint Venture. Considering the impediments faced during execution of these projects such as unfavourable geological conditions, difficult law and order problems, inaccessible and remote locations, the achievement so far is commendable. The generation performance of these stations has been outstanding.

Objectives

The proposed project activity involved the installation of Wind Power Projects. The total installed capacity of the project is 80 MW; which involves the operation of 40 Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) with a capacity of 2 MW, each located at Maharashtra state in India. The project is promoted by Panama Wind Energy Godavari Private Limited.

The power production displaced an equivalent amount of power from the grid, which was fed mainly by fossil fuel-fired power plants. Hence, it resulted in the reduction of GHG emissions. GHG emission reductions from the project activity amounted 136,936 tonnes of CO2 and total GHG emission reductions for the chosen 10 year crediting period amounted  1,369,360 tonnes of CO2.

Our attainments

The project was intended to get registered under the CDM but was delayed due to certain reasons. EKI Energy, however, evaluated the situation and registered the project with Verified Carbon Emission (VCS) mechanism on a deadline basis. Now, Panama is a well-known project in the VCS Market.
