February 26 (Renewables Now) - India-based company Statkraft BLP Solar Solutions (SBSS) has officially launched a 5-MWp solar power facility in the state of Tamil Nadu.
The photovoltaic (PV) plant, situated in the industrial town of Gummidipoondi, was installed for local chemicals producer SRF Ltd (BOM:503806) at its manufacturing base, solar solutions provider and independent power producer (IPP) SBSS said on Thursday.
The output of the plant is seen at around 7,500 MWh per year, which SBSS estimates will help its client lower its electricity costs and carbon footprint significantly. According to the developer, this is the largest “in-campus” solar project in Tamil Nadu.
Set up in 2015, SBSS is a 50/50 joint venture between Norwegian state-owned utility Statkraft AS and Indian renewable energy company Bharat Light and Power Pvt Ltd (BLP). The company provides both rooftop and ground-mounted solutions and also offers different financing structures. It has previously put on stream several rooftop and ground-mounted PV plants, among which is a 5-MWp solar park in Tumkur District, Karnataka.
