Azure Power commissions 600MW solar project in Bikaner

The last 100MWs of the project will be commissioned this month.

Azure Power has commissioned a 600 megawatts (MW) solar power project by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) located in Bikaner, Rajastan.

The power generated from the Interstate Transmission System connected solar project—the largest solar project in India that is owned and operated at a single location—will be supplied to the SECI at a tariff of US3.5 cents (INR 2.53) per kilowatt-hour for 25 years, Azure Power said.

The company commissioned the project in phases and the last 100MWs will be commissioned this month, it added.

"It is an incredible way to start the new year. Since this project was initiated around the onset of COVID-19 in India, we faced several challenges amid lockdowns and safety concerns,” Azure Power CEO Ranjit Gupta said.

“Despite the challenges and whilst prioritising the health and safety of all our employees and communities, we have managed to deliver high performing assets and are extremely proud of achieving yet another milestone in our journey towards a more resilient and sustainable future," he added.

The project brings Azure Power’s operational solar assets in India to 2,510MWs.
