Hello. Congratulations on your posting to Asia's largest solar park

From Ahmedabad it is around 220 kms. There are a network of State Highways that take you there but there really is'nt any big town nearby. The place is one of the remotest in the state hence was chosen for the solar park.

I have no idea about accommodation and eating facilities but since the nearest town, Radhanpur, is 60 kms away I would assume that there ought to be all facilities at the park itself.

GANDHINAGAR: Giving a shot in the arm to Gujarat's initiative in tapping solar energy, state-owned Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Limited (SSNNL) is all set to start building a 10 Mega Watt (MW) solar power generation plant over Narmada canal in Vadodara.

The foundation stone of the canal top solar photovoltaic grid connected power plant that will come up at a cost of Rs 109.91 crore will be laid by chief minister Narendra Modi on February 14.

Sources said the new project will cover a distance of 5.5km from Vishwamitri Siphon to Railway Siphon. The agency finalized for executing the project is Megha Engineering and Infrastructure Limited (MEIL) of Hyderabad that has already built a 50 MW plant in Maharashtra and a 20 MW plant in Andhra Pradesh.

"The solar plant will come up in the engineering procurement construction (EPC) mode instead of public private partnership (PPP) mode. MEIL will also be maintaining it for 25 years," an official said.

Sources said the plant will be completed in six months and will produce 16.2 million units in the first year. "We will be the sole consumers of this power. We are purchasing power from Gujarat Urja Vin Nigam Limited (GUVNL) at a cost of Rs 6.48 per unit and the prices are set to rise by five to 10 per cent per annum. In this case, the power will be generated at a cost of around Rs 7 per unit," an official said.

Sources further said the project would have around 33,000 to 36,000 panels. The project has been designed in a manner that the panels will sustain a wind velocity of 150 kilometres per hour. Since the canal level is higher than the ground, the civil construction costs are high in addition to the expenditure involved in the laying of panels over the canal.

"Since it is coming up over the canal, the wastage of water through evaporation will help save a lot of water. Then there is no land acquisition required and this saves movey besides disputes involved in taking over of land," an official said.

It's ready now!

Country’s biggest canal-top solar power plant ready for operations

The construction work on the 3.5 kilometre-long, country’s biggest 10-MW canal-top solar power plant in Vadodara has been finished and the facility will begin producing power after Diwali that will be used by the Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Limited (SSNNL) to run motor pumps in Saurashtra region. While Vadodara may not directly benefit from the project, the SSNNL is projecting it as a showpiece project to promote green energy among the masses.

SJVN, Hindustan Salt to set up 5,000 MW solar/wind park in Gujarat

Quote:
Sutlej Jal Vidyut Nigam (SJVN) along with Hindustan Salt will set up ultra mega hybrid renewable energy park, having up to 5,000 MW power generation capacity in Gujarat.

The proposed park would have both solar and wind plants.

The park will be developed on the surplus salt pan land of Hindustan Salt.

It would have the generation capacity of 4,000-5,000 MW?including about 3,500?4,200 MW solar and 600?800 MW wind capacities.

Initially, the SJVN will develop all the infrastructure facilities like roads, drainage system, power supply and water supply system, evacuation arrangement from the plot to evacuation sub-station.

At present, SJVN operates two hydel projects including India’s largest 1,500 MW Nathpa Jhakri station in Himachal Pradesh. ?

As part of diversification, Nand Lal Sharma, Director (Personnel), SJVN, said it is already developing a wind energy project in Maharashtra.

750 MW solar park planned in Banaskantha

Gujarat's solar dreams are getting bigger.

After setting up Asia's largest 500 MW solar park at Charnka village in Patan, the state government plans to set up an even bigger solar park with an estimated capacity of 750 MW in Vav taluka of Banaskantha district.

Government sources said that a formal proposal has already been forwarded to the union ministry of new and renewable energy (MNRE). Over 1,400 hectares land has been identified in Vav and talks are on with the state revenue department for its acquisition. The total cost of setting up solar park will be decided after negotiations for the land is complete, said an official.

The solar park will come up under the Scheme for Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects of the union ministry that was announced by the Central government in the budget for 2014-15.

Gujarat is the top solar power producer in the country. Out of the total 1686 MW grid-connected solar power in the country, Gujarat generates 857 MW.

The Gujarat Solar Park at Charnka was the first solar power park in the country. Currently, 274 MW solar power is generated from his park which is spread across 5,384 acres of land.

The Charnka park was set up with an investment of Rs 4,500 crore that included Rs 550 crore for infrastructure and land acquisition and Rs 3,996 crore invested by various developers. The park also created permanent jobs for more than 1,000 people.

Solar Roads, Check

India's major roads may double up as solar highways, if an innovative proposal by some scientists gets the government's approval. The proposal is the brainchild of scientists at the Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute (GERMI) in the state capital.

In a paper just published in the International Journal of Energy, Environment and Engineering, the scientists say highways can be used to generate solar power, if a roof of solar panels was laid over them, across the length of the roads.

The photovoltaic (PV) panels that convert sunlight into electricity is normally spread out on land. "While the price of PV panels is falling day by day, the price of land and its availability are constraints in the development of solar power, especially in India," says Tirumalachetty Harinarayana, director of GERMI and one of the authors of the paper.

"Our proposal overcomes this obstacle by using the space over the highways for placing the PV panels," Harinarayana told this agency. "This space can contribute to energy generation without extra land costs."

The proposal by Harinarayana and co-worker Pragya Sharma is based on case studies they carried out on two highways passing through Gujarat, using computer simulation.

From their computations, they estimate that a PV roof cover over the four-lane 205-km-long Ahmedabad-Rajkot highway can generate 104 mw of power while the Ahmedabad-Vadodara national highway, 93-km-long, can generate 61 mw of electricity.

"We can suggest that the same concept can be extended for use on the 52,584-kilometre-long national and state highways in India with four lanes or more," the scientists said.

The four-lane 5,839-km-long Golden Quadrilateral Highway, for example, connecting Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata, can potentially generate 4,418 mw of power while the North-South-East-West Corridor highway of 7,300 km connecting Srinagar, Kanyakumari, Porbandar and Silchar has 5,524 mw capacity of power generation.

"If having solar panel roof over the national highways proves successful, one can think of using all our rail network as well for solar energy generation," Harinarayana said. IANS

The GERMI scientists claim that apart from producing power, the solar highway concept, if implemented, can generate jobs for both skilled and unskilled people.

"Additionally, the shade provided by the over-head solar panels would result in improved vehicle efficiency and longer tyre life, besides reduction in road maintenance costs," Harinarayana said.

"Another benefit of having a roof over the highways is rainwater harvesting at selected locations," he said.

The scientists point out that the Jawaharlal Nehru Solar Mission (JNSM) launched by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Jan 2010 could not reach its target of 1,200 mw electricity by March 2013 due to various problems.

"Again, there is no roadmap or clear plan to reach its 20 GW target by 2022," said Harinarayana. He said the solar highway concept has the potential for large-scale generation of electricity with grid connectivity in short time.

"This requires one-time investment for constructing a simple elevated structure covering the national highways," he said.

According to Harinarayana, Gujarat state is ideally suited to take a lead in implementing the proposal. The state, he said, has already made great strides in harnessing sunlight by establishing a large solar park near Charanka in the Kutch region, launching the 5 mw solar roof-top programme in Gandhinagar, and also erection of solar panels on a water canal.

He said GERMI would be ready to demonstrate the feasibility of the solar highway through a 1-mw pilot scale project once the government gives approval.


Solar roads are much better.

Need of the hr. is to dive into R&D of robust and load bearing Solar tiles. Google it, a handfull of R&D groups are already into this with near production prototypes.

Govt. must imperatively launch mega R&D into this field to not miss the bus.
