Fortum has announced commissioning of a 70-megawatt solar plant at Bhadla solar park in Rajasthan.
The solar plant is the Finnish firm’s third and so far biggest commissioned solar energy project.
In a statement, Fortum said it won a reverse auction for the project in January 2016 and the building of the solar plant was conducted on schedule.
“The power plant will operate based on a power purchase agreement (PPA) with a fixed tariff for 25 years. The PPA has been made with NTPCBSE 1.55 %, India’s largest power utility,” it said.
Fortum currently has an 85-MW solar capacity in India, with three solar power plants in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
