Tata Power Solar Systems announced on June 25 that it had completed India's largest floating solar power project in Kerala backwaters, totaling 101.6 Megawatt Peak (MWp). The project is installed on a 350-acre water body in Kayamkulam, Kerala, a company statement said.

The installation was completed on time, despite the difficult challenges of variable water depths, high sea tides, and severe water salinity concerns, according to the report.

India’s first and largest floating solar project

Tata Power Solar is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power. This project is the first in the Floating Solar Photovoltaic (FSPV) through power purchase agreement category, the company said. “The commissioning of India’s first and largest floating solar project is an innovative and incremental step toward meeting India’s sustainable energy goals,” said Praveer Sinha, CEO, and MD, Tata Power.

Power generated will be used by KSEB

A power purchase agreement has been signed with a PSU client, wherein the entire power generated from this plant will be used by Kerela State Electricity Board (KSEB). Interestingly, all the solar modules used in this plant were safely transported, unloaded, and stored on a limited parcel of land for about 35 days by Tata Power Solar.

Ashish Khanna, President of Renewables, Tata Power, said the project reinforces Tata Power Solar's commitment to leading India's transition towards a greener future and achieving the collective vision of realizing 500 GW of energy through solar power by 2030.
