The 2-MW grid interactive floating solar power plant, a first-of-its-kind, will aids in bringing down evaporation of water to an extent at Mudasarlova reservoir
Visakhapatnam: As part of the smart city project, Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation is readying a solar power plant with a capacity of 4.5 MW power projects. Already, the first-of-its-kind floating solar power plant in Andhra Pradesh generates 2 MW power. This apart, works related to 1 MW solar plant project near Mudasarlova and 1.5 MW at Krishnapuram have also neared completion. Besides producing power, the 2-MW grid interactive floating solar power plant also aids in bringing down evaporation of water to an extent at Mudasarlova reservoir. The annual energy generation is up to 3,110 MW and water gets saved through 20 per cent water evaporation reduction. With 6,250 number of poly crystalline solar modules, carbon emission reduction amounts to 2,703 MT per annum. Recently, the installation of the 1MW solar plant project with 3,160 poly crystalline solar modules near Mudasarlova reservoir has been completed. Novus Green Energy will take care of the maintenance part.
