Singareni’s 15-MW Solar power plant synchronizes from Mandamarri plant
This is the first solar plant in the 2nd phase
With this 124 MW Singareni solar power synchronized
CMD Conveys his best wishes
Instructions to complete 2nd phase plants by May and 3rd phase plants by October
A 15 Megawatts segment out of the second phase 90 megawatts plant at Mandamarri was synchronized with TRANSCO on Thursday (April 8th). This is part of the 300 megawatts solar power plants being erected by Singareni. Director (E & M) Sri. D. Satyanarayana Rao switched it on for synchronization. Area GM Sri. Chintala Srinivas and officials from TS GENCO participated in the program.
C & MD Sri. N. Sridhar conveyed his best wishes for the start of power generation from the first plant in the second phase. Out of the 300 megawatts solar power plant erection in the first phase, 30 megawatts from Manuguru, 30 megawatts from Ramagundam, 39 megawatts from Illandu and 10 megawatts from Singareni thermal power plant has already been synchronized and total of 109 megawatts solar power has been synchronized with State grid and with this addition of 15 megawatts from Mandamarri, a total of 124 megawatts Singareni solar power has been synchronized with TRANSCO, he said.
C & MD Sri. N. Sridhar gave clear instructions that the balance 85 megawatts plants in the 2nd phase is to be completed by the end of May and 81 megawatts plants in the 3rd phase must be completed by October and synchronized.
2nd Phase to be completed by May and 3rd Phase by October.
Solar power plants are being erected at 3 places in the second phase. Out of these, 28 megawatts from Mandamarri plant-1, 15 megawatts from plant-2 were to be erected. Out of these, 2nd plant of Mandamarri was completed and synchronized on Thursday (April 8th). 1st plant (28 megawatts) will also be synchronized next week. Balance Kothagudem 37 megawatts, Bhupalapalli 10 megawatts plant are to be completed by May 15 and synchronized. With this, 90 megawatts in the second phase will be completed. Adani group is the agency for the erection of these plants.
81 megawatts in the 3rd phase will be synchronized by October 2021
Out of the 81 megawatts erection in the 3rd phase, erection of 15 megawatts floating plants on the water reservoir of Singareni Thermal power plant has been taken up by Novis Company and the work is going on in full speed. Similarly, for the first-time solar plants on over burden – 22 megawatts on Ramagundam OC-3, 10 megawatts on Dorli OC-1 are also being taken up. This work has already started and is in progress. Apart from these, 11 megawatts in Chennuru and 23 megawatts near Kothagudem are being erected by Adani group.
By October, 2021 the three phases of erection of Singareni solar plants would be completed and a total 300 megawatts solar power would be synchronized with the State grid. 1200 megawatts thermal power from Singareni thermal power plant, 300 megawatts power from Singareni solar plants – a total of 1500 megawatts of power would be supplied for the needs of the State by Singareni.
