The project, which is divided into 40 blocks and each having 2.5 MW, is endowed with advanced technology and environment-friendly features.
Each block consists of a floating platform and a set of 11,200 solar modules, while the floating platform includes one inverter, transformer and a high-tension breaker.
The entire system is anchored by a special high modulus polyethylene rope to dead weights placed on the dam bed and the power passes to the switchyard via 33 kilovolt subway cables.
The state-run National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC) stated that with the commissioning of the project, the total commercial operation of floating solar capacity in southern India rose to 217 MW.
Earlier, the NTPC declared the commercial operation of 92 MW of floating solar power in Kayamkulam, Kerala state, and another 25 MW facility in Simhadri, Andhra Pradesh state.
