NLC India Limited, a Navratna Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSE) under the Ministry of Coal has won 810 MW Solar PV project capacity from Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Nigam Limited (RRVUNL).

NLCIL has successfully garnered the entire capacity of the 810 MW tender floated by RRVUNL in December 2022, for developing the project RRVUNL’s 2000 MW Ultra Mega Solar Park at Pugal Tehsil, Bikaner District, Rajasthan.

The Letter of Intent for this project has been issued by RRVUNL. This achievement marks a significant step forward in NLCIL's commitment to clean and sustainable energy solutions.

The land for the project and the power evacuation system connected to STU will be offered by RVUNL, paving the way for the completion of the project in a shorter period.

This is the largest Renewable project to be developed by the company. With this project, the capacity of the power project in Rajasthan will be 1.36 GW including 1.1 GW of green power, bringing economies of scale and optimized fixed costs.

Considering the good Solar radiation in Rajasthan, a higher CUF for the project is possible and will generate green power of more than 50 billion Units and offset more than 50,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions during the life of the project.

Currently, the company is establishing a 50 MW Solar project at Mined out the land, a 200 MW Solar project under the CPSU scheme on a Pan-India basis, a 300 MW Solar project under the CPSU Scheme at Barsingsar, Bikaner District, and a 600 MW Solar project at Khavda Solar project, Bhuj District, Gujarat.

Prasanna Kumar Motupalli, CMD, said that the company was the first CPSU to install 1 GW of RE capacity and NLCIL is currently developing 2 GW RE capacity across India including this project with a target to reach more than 6 GW RE capacity by 2030, in line with the commitment of the Government of India, augmenting RE capacity addition.
