Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Limited (GSECL) has plans to set up a concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) plant of 50 MW capacity with storage facility in one of the existing thermal power stations.
As India’s National Solar Mission takes a back seat for concentrated solar power projects, regional opportunities have sprung to the fore – and Gujarat intends to capitalize.
Lauren CCL Engineers Private Limited (Lauren CCL) announced a Letter of Award from Cargo Power & Infrastructure to provide Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management services for a 25 MW CSP Plant to be located
The Gujarat Government has allotted 716 MW of solar power: solar photovoltaic accounts for 365 MW and solar thermal 351 MW.
Gujarat, located in western India and one of the most progressive states, has showcased a truly aggressive attitude towards harnessing optimum solar energy, as part of its Solar Policy 2009.
