Vikram Solar to commission 40-MW Rajasthan plant

Quote:
NEW DELHI: Aiming to set up solar power projects of 300 MW over next 3-5 years, leading solar product manufacturer Vikram Solar today said it will soon commission its 40-MW plant in Rajasthan.

The 40-MW solar power generating plant in Rajasthan is being set up with an investment of over Rs 400 crore under the government's National Solar Mission (NSM).

"It is in the process of completion. It will be commissioned in an another week's time," Vikram Solar Director Gyanesh Chaudhary told PTI.

Chaudhary said that the Kolkata-based company has completed engineering procurement construction ( EPC) contracts of 100 MW in the last two years.

"We are targeting to set up solar power projects of 300 MW over the next 3-5 years," he said.

The NSM, launched by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in January 2010, has an ambitious target of installing 20,000 MW of solar energy by 2020. For this, the government has signed PPAs with different solar power developers.

The company has already commissioned several projects, including a 2 MW solar project in Chhattisgarh, 5 MW solar power plant in Gujarat and a 1 MW project in Orissa.

Chaudhary also said the firm is in talks with the Tamil Nadu government for setting up of a 10 MW facility.

"The state government is very interested about the project and we will formally announced in a couple of weeks," he added.

Further, the company is actively considering similar projects in Maharashtra, he said adding "We are working on the plan. The firm already has 50 acres of land in Maharashtra".

As per reports, the total installed solar power capacity in India is 1200 MW and another 500 MW is expected to be added this year.

In order to protect the nascent solar industry of the country, the government has recently initiated a probe into alleged dumping of solar cells by Malaysia, China and the US.

"There is a need to impose the restrictive duty on solar cells to protect the local players," he added.

Rajasthan solar tender turns up lowest ever tariff

Quote:
CHENNAI, FEB 13:

Rajasthan’s tender for purchase of solar power has turned up the lowest ever tariff offered for selling electricity generated by solar plants.

Essel Mining, which wants to put up a 10 MW solar photo voltaic plant and supply the power to Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation, has quoted Rs 6.45 a kWhr.

(Although, in a similar tender in Tamil Nadu a bidder (Mohan Breweries) had quoted Rs 5.97 a unit, Tamil Nadu’s tender has a 5 per cent annual escalation for 10 years.)

Rajasthan’s tender for purchase of solar power from 100 MW of capacity has attracted 23 qualified bidders with total bid capacity of 185 MW. The highest rate quoted is Rs 8.25 a KWhr. Seventeen of the bidders have quoted rates less than Rs 8, and 12 of them Rs 7.50 or below. Four bidders have offered to sell solar-generated electricity at rates of Rs 7 or below.

However, the bidders will be asked to match the lowest price (L-1, which is Rs 6.45). “Since the allocation of projects will be based on the L1 quoted tariff, the big question will be how many of the bidders will accept the L1 rate,” says Madhavan Nampoothiri, Director, RESolve Energy Consultants.

Solar power tariff has been plummeting, from an average rate of Rs 12.16 a unit for 140 MW under the National Solar Mission Batch I bidding, to Rs 8.77 a unit for 340 MW in Batch II to further lower levels in various State tenders.

However, experts note that the era of cheap solar power may be coming to an end. This is because of the likelihood of an anti-dumping duty on imported Chinese and American solar modules and cells. Secondly, China itself is moving towards an anti-dumping duty on polysilicon — a key raw material — imported from the US. Furthermore, China itself is coming out with a huge solar power programme, over 10,000 MW. All these could cause hardening of prices. Indian solar power developers may not be able to access the equipment needed to generate solar power so cheap in the near future.

Suzlon receives 102.9MW project order from ONGC

Project comprises 49 units of 2.1MW wind turbines, will be commissioned in Rajasthan in financial year 2013-14

Quote:
Mumbai: Wind turbine maker Suzlon Energy Ltd, on Tuesday, said it had received an order for a 102.9 megawatts (MW) project from Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd (ONGC). The company did not, however, disclose the value of the contract.

To be commissioned in Rajasthan, the project comprises 49 units of 2.1MW wind turbines and will be commissioned in the financial year 2013-14.
As a rule of thumb, a wind turbine costs Rs.6 crore per MW which would make this contract worth about Rs.600 crore.

ONGC currently has an existing installed base of 51MW from wind energy projects operating at its Jakhau site in Gujarat.
I
n late January, the Suzlon Group won approval for a Rs.9,500-crore debt restructuring plan from its domestic lenders.

The lenders, a consortium of 19 banks, also agreed to enhance working capital facilities to the group by Rs.1,800 crore and a 10-year back-ended repayment plan.

Solar projects likely to be launched by PM

Quote:
JAISALMER: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is expected to inaugurate two 50 megawatt solar projects at Phalodi in Jodhpur district by the end of this week.

A detailed itinerary of his visit is yet to come but after his approval the state as well as district administration has begun preparations.

The PM's confirmation to the visit is a testimony to the silent yet successful revolution to tap non-conventional sources of energy in Jodhpur and Jaisalmer districts.

Pokhran belt in Jaisalmer and Phalodi belt in Jodhpur, over the past few years, have witnessed a surge in the number of solar and wind projects with big-ticket firms competing to set up plants.

So far, over three dozen solar projects of 1000MW have been set up in these two districts alone while projects of over 5000MW still in pipeline. High-profile industrial families are stakeholders in some of these plants. Wind mills of a total capacity of 2000 MW too have been installed in the region even as proposals for another 2500MW are to be cleared. The pace at which these plants are being set up in the region may make it possible for an energy-deficient state to meet its power demands in a few years.

Central government's liberal policy to promote non-conventional ways for power generation has helped the movement flourish in the desert state. The PM's visit is being read as government's aim to promote such initiatives in the region.

Besides first-timers, several established industrial houses have shown keen interest to start solar and wind projects in region.

As per some official records, the government has received proposals from over 150 companies for solar plants with a total capacity of around 6000MW. Sources confirmed that Rajasthan Sun Technique Private Limited, a subsidiary of Anil Ambani's Reliance Power, has started power generation from its 100MW solar plant at Doodhsar village in Pokhran. The work on setting up another 40MW plant is also in progress.

Besides these, work has begun on seven projects of 5MW each at Askandra, three projects of 5MW each at Nokh and Pokhran. These are set to be completed by May 9, 2013.

According to sources, steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal's firms too have applied for two projects of 50MW each at Ishanion ki basti in the Sam area of Jaisalmer.

L&T bags Rs 5,689 cr order in Rajasthan

Quote:
MUMBAI: Engineering major Larsen & Toubro today said it has bagged a Rs 5,689 crore order from state-owned Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam for setting up a supercritical thermal power project.

The order involves design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of two coal-fired thermal units of 660 MW each with supercritical parameters at Chhabra in Rajasthan.

"This is the country's first complete EPC order for 2x660 MW supercritical units placed by a state utility on the private sector," the company's Wholetime Director Shailendra Roy told reporters here.

The project has a stringent completion schedule of 42 months for Unit 1 and 45 months for Unit 2, he said.

"The order comes as L&T enters the advanced execution phase of several large supercritical thermal power projects, including those which are being built on an EPC basis as well as boiler-turbine-generator units and balance-of-plant packages," Roy said.

With this contract, L&T now has orders for supply and installation of 26 supercritical steam generators and steam turbine generators of 660 MW, 700 MW and 800MW worth around Rs 26,000 crore.

"In the last one-and-half years, no new orders were coming in, mainly due to issues like coal availability, environmental clearance, etc. But we are now seeing some positive trend in the sector and expect another 6-7 orders on the EPC side to be bid out in FY'14. We are well geared up and expect to have a good market share in this business," he said.

L&T has partnered with Japan-based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries for manufacturing supercritical boilers and turbines. The L&T-MHI facility in Hazira, Surat has an annual capacity of manufacturing 5,000 MW of equipment, to be expanded to 6,000 MW.

Giriraj of India Completes 33MW of Solar Capacity in Rajasthan

Quote:
Giriraj Enterprises Ltd. of India completed 33 megawatts of solar-power capacity, the most to be built under the nation’s Renewable Energy Credits mechanism.

The company started output from three projects of 19, 11 and 3 megawatts in the western state of Rajasthan last week, Prafulla Khinvasara, the company’s chief executive officer for renewable-power projects, said by telephone.

Companies such as Giriraj, a tobacco trader, are building solar generators to benefit from renewable-energy incentives. Producers of clean power can earn certificates for the output they send to the grid. They can then sell the credits to state power distributors that are obliged to buy a portion of their electricity from clean sources such as wind, solar and water.

Giriraj has signed a power purchase agreement with the local state-owned electricity distributor, Khinvasara said from Sangamner in Maharashtra state, where the company is based. Giriraj will be able to sell electricity at an average price of 2.7 rupees (5 cents) a unit, and expects to trade 53,000 certificates a year, he said.

Indian demand for renewable-energy credits, or RECs, almost tripled last month to 435,481 in the run-up to the fiscal year- end. Solar credits sold for 13,400 rupees apiece on the Indian Electricity Exchange, according to REConnect Energy Solutions Pvt.

“The Indian REC market is considered risky and unpredictable by investors,” said Bharat Bhushan, a New Delhi- based analyst with Bloomberg New Energy Finance. “Thirty-three megawatts is the largest solar REC project in India and it is not a normal practice to see such large investments in solar RECs.”[

BHEL To Set-UP Asia's Largest Solar Plant In India

Quote:
Friday, April 05, 2013: We have already mentioned quite a few times that states like Gujarat and Rajasthan have been eyed by various solar developers and manufacturers from India and across the globe. The latest firm to eye the region for setting up solar plant is Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL).

According to reports, BHEL will join hands with Hindustan Salts Lts (HSL) to install a 2,500 MW solar power project that will be covered across 15,000 acre of land in Rajasthan.

The plant, once completed, will become one of Asia's largest solar power plant, which is no mean feat. The process to study the viability of the plant will be undertaken in the coming months.

The proposal is being handled under the supervision of Ministry of Heavy Industries which is also looking to utilise around 23,000 acres of land in Gujarat for harnessing solar power in the region.

It is said that a 5 MW PV crystalline silicon plant requires close to 25 acres of land and HSL apparently has a total of around 57,000 acres land in Rajasthan, which is more than enough to meet the projected target.

“Of the 20,000 acres, we can give 15,000 acres for the installation of a solar plant, as we need the rest for our core business. Once the project is implemented, preliminary estimates show that we will have a capacity of 2,500 MW and this will be the largest in Asia,” R K Tandon, chairman and managing director, Hindustan Salts, was quoted as saying in the report.

Rajasthan surpasses 500 MW of installed solar photovoltaic capacity

Quote:
The Indian state of Rajasthan has commissioned 510 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity, according to the latest report by Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation Ltd. (Jaipur, India).

Rajasthan added the majority of this capacity at 314 MW in the 2012-2013 fiscal year, starting with only 5 MW installed in 2010-2011. The majority of the new capacity was added through the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).

“Rajasthan has been the go-to destination for developers interested in setting up solar PV projects under the first phase of the JNNSM accounting for about 70% of the total capacity installed in the state,” notes RESolve Energy Consultants.

Growing interest in REC mechanism

RESolve Energy Consultants states that this capacity has come in three distinct phases. The first was driven by projects added under the migration and RPSSGP program.

The second phase came in late 2011 to early 2013 under the JNNSM, and new capacity in 2013 onward has primarily come through the REC/Open Access mechanism. RESolve states that there is a growing interest in commissioning projects through the REC mechanism, as developers gain confidence.

Jodhpur leads installations

The majority of PV capacity installed in the state to date has been in the Jodhpur district, with 293 MW installed. This is followed by Jaisalmer with 94 MW installed and Bikaner at 65.9 MW.

Rajasthan is the second state to reach 500 MW of installed PV capacity, following Gujarat, which had installed 824 MW by the end of 2012. Together, these two states represent the vast majority of PV installed in India.
