Tata Power Solar commissions India’s largest solar and battery storage project

TPSSL secured this ₹945 crore project on an EPC basis from the Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd (SECI) in December 2021.

Tata Power Solar Systems Limited (TPSSL), a fully integrated solar company in India and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), has successfully commissioned the country’s largest Solar and Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) project. This project comprises a 100 MW Solar PV Project coupled with a 120 MWh Utility Scale Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) located at Rajnandgaon in Chhattisgarh. TPSSL secured this ₹ 945 crore project on an EPC basis from the Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd. (SECI) in December 2021. The scope of the order included engineering, design, supply, construction, erection, testing, O&M, and commissioning of the projects.

During the project execution, the TPSSL team demonstrated exceptional project execution and engineering prowess despite facing various challenges such as unsuitable full hard rock soil conditions and a remote location. Nevertheless, the project was completed within the stipulated time frame. The cutting-edge Bifacial Mono Crystalline technology was utilised for 239,685 modules in the project.
