It is government land. Although near settlements you do have people owning chunks of land but that's not much. There isn't a question of former Maharajas etc owning large amount of land as at the time of joining the Indian union they could only keep a certain number of properties, land etc. everything else had to be given up. So yeah the govt. owns it and it decides what goes on it.

Abhijeet Projects Ltd is on track for the completion of its 50-MW solar thermal power plant at Jaisalmer

Quote:
CHENNAI, MARCH 19:

With the process of placing orders for equipment being almost over, Abhijeet Projects Ltd is on track for the completion of its 50-MW solar thermal power plant at Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.

Abhijeet is the special purpose vehicle of Corporate Ispat and Alloys Ltd, and a consortium led by the Chennai-based Shriram EPC Ltd is building the plant for Abhijeet.

Sources said that the order for the turbines has been placed on Siemens, Sweden. The parabolic mirrors are being bought from Rio Glass of Spain. The ‘heat transfer fluid' receivers will be supplied by Siemens, Israel, while the American company Solutia will supply the 1,200-tonnes of the fluid. Hyspan of the US is to supply the ‘ball joints', another critical component.

Another Israeli company will supply the 10,000-odd tonnes of metal structures (that support the mirrors). Some 7 km of pipes will run through the 500-acre site. The biggest cost of a solar thermal plant is ‘land'. The turbine, mirrors, receivers and metal structures account for 10 per cent each of the total cost of the project.

What is yet to be ordered for is the instrumentation system, which, according to sources, could be bought later.

Right now at the site, nearly a thousand people are doing the civil works. The EPC contractor, Shriram EPC-led consortium, is confident of completing the project well ahead of the deadline of May 9, 2013. Corporate Ispat's was one of the seven winning bids for the solar thermal projects, bid out by NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam (NVVN), under the first batch of projects of the first phase of the National Solar Mission. Corporate Ispat won the project quoting a tariff of Rs 12.24 a unit.

Business Line understands that the only other project that is also at an advanced stage of order-placing is that of Godawari Ispat.

Quote:
JAISALMER: The desert state on Saturday achieved the glory of having the country's biggest solar power generation plant. The 40MW plant has been set up at Dhoodsar village near Pokhran in Jaisalmer district and the plant started power generation from Saturday.

In a grand function organised at the village, Union new and renewable energy minster Farooq Abdullah, and state chief minister Ashok Gehlot inaugurated the photovoltaic plant capable of generating 40MW power. State energy minister Jitendra Singh, Reliance chairman and managing director Anil Ambani and public representatives were also present at the event.

The function began with the guests offering floral tribute to late Dhirubhai Ambani and lit the inaugural lamp. The plant owned by Reliance Energy was built at an estimated cost of Rs 400 crore on 140 hectares of land. The plant will generate 720 lakh units of power.

On the occasion, Abdullah said India would soon become a leader in solar energy in the world and the Union government is making all efforts towards achieving this goal.

He said a lot of work is going on in the country in the power generation sector especially in taking up multi-faceted efforts to provide solar energy which in turn would strengthen the Indian economy. "Rajasthan is ideal in regard to the solar energy and this state would provide electricity to the entire country by setting up a large number of solar plants," Abdullah said.

The Union minister said the country has set target to produce 20,000 MW of solar energy by 2022. He hoped that Rajasthan alone would cross this target. He praised the solar policy of the state government and congratulated the chief minister for taking up the efforts to set up solar plants. Abdullah said India ranks fifth in regard to wind energy production in the world and the way the work is going on, "we would further move ahead". He asked Anil Ambani to set up more projects in this direction.

Abdullah further said at present 90 per cent of power generation fund is spent on coal, petrol, diesel and other natural gas. In such situation, if solar and wind energy is used then every village a new dimension would be added to this sector. He requested Anil Ambani to name this solar energy plant after Dhirubhai Ambani.

Addressing the gathering chief minister Ashok Gehlot expressed gratitude to Anil Ambani for completing the project within two years and hoped that the Reliance group will invest more in Rajasthan. Stating that Rajasthan is number one in the entire country in regard to solar energy, Gehlot ssaid there is huge scope of expansion in this sector. He said efforts are being made to set up a solar energy park in western Rajasthan and to develop the state as a solar hub.

The chief minister said the state's solar energy policy has been made incorporate more investments and provisions have been made for many relaxations to the investors. He said Rs 10,000 crore is being invested in this field and there is expectation of Rs 6,000 crore more.

State energy minister Jitendra Singh said along with conventional energy, a lot of work is going on in the state in the solar and wind energy sector. He said, "Chief minister Gehlot had earlier inaugurated a wind energy plant and today 1,900 MW wind energy is being produced in the state."

He reiterated that Rajasthan is a leader in energy sector and the chief minister has made a provision of Rs 12,500 crore in this sector. A large number of grids is being set up for solar power in the state and by next month Suratgarh and Chabra plants will start functioning, Singh said, informing that the energy sector has been taken care of in the Five Year plan. He added that 16,500 investors have come forward to invest in solar energy in the state.

Relaince CMD Anil Ambani said it is historic moment for Rajasthan as the 40Mw solar plant in Dhoodsar village started generating power. "That we will be getting 40MW power every single day is a record in itself," he said.

Praising the role of Abdullah and Gehlot, he said the plant was the result of their encouragement. Investment this sector has increased due to their efforts, Anil Ambani said. The Reliance CMD also praised the solar energy policy of the Rajasthan government and said that in two years he would set up a solar energy plant of 300MW on which Rs 6,000 crore would be spent.

Reliance Power plans over Rs 6,000 crore investment in Rajasthan

Quote:
DHURSAR (RAJASTHAN): Reliance Power plans to invest more than Rs 6,000 crore for solar power generation projects in Rajasthan in the next two years, its Chairman has said.

Anil Ambani group firm Reliance Power commissioned a 40 mega watt solar power plant in Rajasthan, which is the country's largest solar project so far. Another 100 mega watt capacity would be added at the site in the next one year.

"Based on futuristic policy of the Government of India as well as the Government of Rajasthan, we hope to double the capacity to 300 Mega watt in the next 24 months. This would mean our investment at this location would exceed Rs 6,000 crore," Anil Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Power, said after the commissioning of the 40 mega watt plant here on Saturday.

The 40 mega watt plant has been set up at an investment of about Rs 700 crore. The long term power purchase agreement for the project has been signed with Reliance Infrastructure and the power generated would be used for Mumbai. The project would generate more than 70 million units of clean power.

The project is financed with a debt equity ratio of 75:25. While Reliance Power has put in the entire equity, the debt have been provided by the US Exim Bank and the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

"Our Dhursar plant demonstrates the huge potential of solar energy to help India meet its growing energy needs in the most environmentally friendly manner. Reliance Power's vision is to become India's largest green power company and the commissioning of this solar project is the first major step in that direction," he said.

The commissioning of the 40 mega watt plant was done in the presence of Minister for New and Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah and Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.

Further, the company is developing a 100 mega watt solar thermal plant at the same site as part of national solar mission.

The two projects would require an investment of about Rs 2,800 crore, which is the largest investment in solar power at a single location, according to the company.

"We now have set our ambition that in the next 365 days, probably on the same day next year, we would have added another 100 mega watt at this site," Ambani said.

AREVA to Build Asia's Largest Concentrated Solar Power Installation

Quote:
AREVA Solar, an AREVA (Paris:AREVA) subsidiary, has been awarded a contract by the Indian group Reliance Power Limited to build a 250 megawatt (MW) concentrated solar power (CSP) installation in India, which will become the largest in all of Asia. The project will help advance India's goal of adding 20,000 MW of solar energy by 2022 and will result in the avoidance of approximately 557,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year compared to a similar sized coal-fired power plant.

Under the contract, AREVA will build two 125 MW CSP plants using its Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR) technology and will provide construction management services for the project. The first phase of the project is under construction, with a target commercial operation date of May 2013. The solar power plants will be located in Rajasthan.

J P Chalasani, CEO of Reliance Power, stated: "Reliance Power is proud to be a leader in India's clean energy future. Today's announcement is just the beginning. We look forward to working with AREVA Solar in helping meet India's clean energy goals through this project."

AREVA CEO Luc Oursel stated: "AREVA is delighted to help deliver on the promise of India's progressive solar energy goals and to advance Reliance's bold vision for a global clean energy portfolio. We will leverage our best-in-class experience to help make India and Reliance global solar industry leaders. Following our success in the French wind offshore sector, this contract reinforces the AREVA strategy in renewable energies."

The Reliance contract solidifies AREVA Solar's position as a leading global supplier of CSP solutions for large-scale standalone power plants, power augmentation of fossil-fired power plants and solar hybrid applications, and follows on a series of successes. This project also further strengthens and diversifies AREVA's low-carbon energy hub in India.

In Australia, AREVA Solar was awarded a contract to build a 44 MW solar thermal addition to the coal-fired Kogan Creek power station, and its energy consortium was selected as the preferred bidder for a 250 MW CLFR power plant under Australia's Solar Flagships Program. And in the USA, AREVA Solar recently announced a partnership with Tucson Electric Power on a solar augmentation project in Arizona.

In total, AREVA Solar currently has more than 500 MW of CSP projects in operation, under construction or in advanced development, making AREVA one the fastest-growing CSP technology providers.

MORE ABOUT

PARIS — The French energy group Areva said Wednesday that it would build the biggest concentrated solar power installation in Asia for Reliance Power of India.
Areva Solar is to construct two plants using compact linear fresnel reflector (CLFR) technology that would produce 250 megawatts (MW) of electricity in Rajasthan, northwestern India, a statement said.
That would provide energy for around 300,000 people in Europe according to a sector estimation.
CLFR technology uses reflected sunlight to heat liquid-filled tubes which generate high-pressure steam that produces electricity via turbines.
Financial details were not disclosed, but the statement said the installation "will become the largest in all of Asia" and would contribute to an Indian goal of adding 20,000 MW of solar energy capacity by 2022.
The project, which has already begun its first phase would represent a reduction of around 557,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually compared with a coal-fired plant, Areva added.
It set a target date of May 2013 for the operational launch of the first plant.

AREVA, the French-based, state-owned global energy company known for leading the world in nuclear energy has taken a big shining to solar technology lately — really big.

The company is constructing two solar plants in Rajasthan, India by 2013 that will together make the largest project of its kind in terms of power output on the entire continent of Asia.

The “project’s annual energy production will be 284,255 mWh/yr, producing power for 365,365 people,” an AREVA spokesperson told TPM via email.

The two plants will each be 125 megawatt capacity, and AREVA says together they will “result in the avoidance of approximately 557,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year compared to a similar sized coal-fired power plant.” Already, work has begun on the first plant, AREVA told TPM.

Like AREVA’s other solar projects, the plants will rely on concentrated solar power (CSP), or solar steam.

The technology works by using common materials such as wood and glass to create large fields of angled, sun-tracking mirrors that bounce sunlight onto a single central turbine filled with a reactive liquid, which becomes steam and in turn drives the power generators in the plant. That’s different from more common photovoltaic solar power, in which solar panels absorb sunlight and turn the photos directly into electricity.

AREVA specifically got into the solar steam game back in 2010, when it acquired an American CSP firm called Ausra. Since then, AREVA has been pushing Ausra’s specific type of CSP technology — the Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR) — all around the world.

AREVA in February announced it was adding a CLFR booster to an Arizona fossil fuel electricity plant, although that project is markedly smaller, producing just 5 megawatts to begin with.

At the time, an AREVA executive told TPM that the company believed hybrid plants that combined fossil fuels with solar energy were more efficient than stand-alone CSP plants.

But in India, AREVA is building not only two stand-alone plants, but their collective production will be the largest CSP project on the continent.
