Vikram Solar to commission 40MW solar power facility in Rajasthan, India
Indian renewable energy developer Vikram Solar is shortly expected to commissions a 40MW solar project in the state of Rajasthan.
The project is developed under the government-backed National Solar Mission (NSM) and attracted an investment of INR4bn ($74m).
Vikram Solar director Gyanesh Chaudhary told the PTI that the project is in the process of completion and will be commissioned towards the end of February 2013.
The project is part of the company's plans to develop a 300MW solar power portfolio over the next 3-5 years.
Chaudhary added that the company was engaged in discussions with the Tamil Nadu government for setting up of a 10 MW facility.
