SolarDiversified Adani Group announced the commissioning of country's largest 40 mw solar power plant in Kutch district Gujarat. For India's largest private thermal power producer, the Solar Power Plant marks Adani's first big foray in the renewable energy sector. Going forward, Adani Group is planning to expand the capacity of this plant to 100 mw. The group is claiming to have commissioned country's largest solar power plant in record time of 150 days starting from foundation stone laying to electricity generation.

"We are pleased to dedicate country's largest solar plant to Nation today. We, at Adani, are committed to protect and encourage better use of natural resources of our country by implementing better technologies. The Solar plant and uses of Super Critical Technology in all of our Thermal Power Plants is a testimony of our commitment towards the environment," said Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani. The solar power plant is using solar PV technology and has over 400,000 solar PV modules mounted on 21,600 structures, which are erected on 130,000 foundations.

The power generated from this solar plant will be evacuated through a 66 KV line linked to a substation in Netra, located 20 kms away from the project site. The project was awarded under Gujarat Solar Power policy of 2009. Adani Power, a company of Adani Group, is currently operating 3,300 MW at Mundra with 4 units of 330 MW and 3 units of 660 MW, and is in the process of commissioning two more units of 660 MW by March 12 to achieve the final plant capacity of 4,620 MW. This will position Mundra as the single largest thermal power plant in India. Within this financial year, Adani Power also plans to commission 1320 MW at Tiroda enhancing operational capacity of Adani Power to 6000 MW by March 12. Further Adani Power plans to commission 6000 mw by March 2012 and 10,000 mw of power generation capacity by March 2013. This capacity will be achieved with Mundra (4620MW), Tiroda (3300MW) and Kawai (1320MW).
