L&T Construction secures EPC order for 90MW floating solar PV plant in India



L&T Construction has received an EPC order to establish a 90MW floating solar PV plant in India. The Power Transmission & Distribution Business of the company secured multiple EPC orders in India and overseas. The floating solar PV plant will be located at the Omkareshwar dam reservoir in the Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh. As per the local reports, this water body is one of the largest floating solar parks in the world. Besides, another floating solar power plant will also be built in Khandwa which will generate 600 MW power by 2022-23. It could be the world's largest floating solar plant project. This comes at a time when India aims to increase the power generation capacity of the central state of Madhya Pradesh and address the energy crisis in the region. "Omkareshwar Dam is built on the Narmada river. This is our hydel project and in this, we produce energy from water, but it is spread over about 100 square kilometres, there is a very large water body where the water level remains normal," Renewable Energy Department Principal Secretary Sanjay Dubey was quoted in a report earlier. He informed that with the new floating solar plant, Khandwa will become the only district in the province to have thermal power station, hydel and solar power. According to L&T, besides, it has also received an order for establishing 400kV and 225kV transmission lines in North Africa. In addition, the company is all set to build a 132kV substation in Malaysia.
