Corporate Milestones

- Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav

We are happy to announce that Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA) has awarded Tata Power Solar with a Certificate of Performance at the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. This certificate is an appreciation towards our excellent performance and efforts displayed while installing 624 solar pumping systems under Component-B of the PM-KUSUM Scheme in Punjab. We are looking forward to doing more in helping India become self-sufficient with respect to energy generation.

- Tata Power Solar doubles its manufacturing capacity of Cells and Modules to 1,100 MW

Tata Power Solar expanded its manufacturing capacity of Cell from 300 MW to 530 MW with Mono PERC and Module from 400 MW to 580 MW with Mono PERC Half cut technology.

These lines are capable of handling 166 mm - 210 mm wafers and also module wattage ranging from 440 watts to 530 watts with option for bifacial modules. The expansion is based on the significant increase in demand that the company has seen for its solar modules, as well as the expected increase in demand due to supportive policy steps announced recently by the Government of India for creating ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ (Self-Reliant India). Tata Power Solar, is one of the few companies globally to have a long operating history of 31 years. This is a strong proof point for the company’s ability to honour the 25 years warranty that solar modules come with. Tata Power Solar has seen an increase in demand for its products which reaffirms the faith customers put in the quality of its products.

Year 2020
Corporate Milestones

- Tata Power (Renewables) was recognized as "Industry Leader" in the Tata Business Excellence Model (TBEM Assessment) 2020.

Tata Power Solar won Re-Assets Award 2021 in the category of 'Best Service Provider of the Year: Asset Management Turnkey'. Tata Power Solar got the recognition towards increased plant availability by 0.5% which has resulted in improvement of plant performance in form improvement in energy generation. The method was patented and granted in Intellectual property INDIA. Also, developed in house algorithm in commissioned plants where Peak power control was not conceptualised at initial stage. This has resulted in 60 Lakhs/Annum revenue gain due to increased energy generation, with one time cost saving of 80 Lakhs for capacity of 250 MW.

Project Milestone

50MW Kasaragod Solar Park

Inauguration of 50 MW Kasaragod solar plant at Kerala by the Honourable PM Shri Narendra Modi, digitally and Shri Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister, Kerala. The occasion was graced by the team of THDC India Ltd. along with Tata Power Solar team. Tata Power Solar commissioned 50 MW AC solar PV plant at Kasaragod Solar Park, Kerala. Approximately 1,65,149 Multi Crystalline solar modules were used in the project.

Tata Power Solar has solely designed, engineered, procured, commissioned the project and will undertake the comprehensive operation & maintenance of the plant for 10 years. The plant is expected to generate about 101 MUs of energy annually. Despite Covid challenges, the project was completed one month ahead of its timelines.

Year 2019
Project Milestone

- Tata Power Solar won 105MWp bid of one of the largest floating solar plants in the world to be installed at NTPC Kayamkulam in Kerala

Tata Power Solar post reverse auction of 105MWp Floating Solar Project, have received a Letter of Award to develop this project worth approx. INR 343 crores including 3 years O&M.

This project is one of the most prominent floating solar projects in the country. The venture will be executed on the reservoir of NTPC Kayamkulam District Allappuzha, Kerala. The project is required to be commissioned not later than 21 months.

 

Year 2018

Corporate milestones

- Award for Active Promotion of TBEM

Tata Power Solar received an award for Active Promotion of TBEM. This award was presented in a glittering ceremony at Delhi by our Group Chairman Mr. N Chandrasekaran during the BEC’18 convention.

This award is a testimony of the tireless efforts and focus on a process based approach by each one of you. This is also a reflection of our excellent financial results i.e. 3 times increase in revenue in last 3 years, ranked as No.1 EPC player in rooftop segment from last 5 years and distinction of having commissioned remarkable projects.

Project Milestone

- Tata Power Solar installed World’s largest solar rooftop installation on a cricket stadium, at Cricket Club of India, Mumbai

  • 820.8kWp Solar Rooftop System
  • CCI stadium in Mumbai goes green
  • Estimated generation 1.12 million units per annum
  • Offset 840 tonnes of carbon annually

The project was executed by Tata Power Solar to provide solar rooftop solution for the stadium located at Mumbai and was completed in 100 days.

Shri Devendra Fadnavis, Honourable Chief Minister of Maharashtra did the inauguration of the stadium.

Tata Power Solar joined hands with Cricket Club of India to utilise the potential of solar energy. The installation of the solar rooftop project will help to generate over 1.12 million electricity per year which will lead to 25% of savings in the power consumption cost.

At present on an average (apart from Stadium Flood lights, which runs on DG), the stadium consumes 4 lakhs kWh /month, but with solar installation, on an average basis the consumption from the grid would fall to approx. 3 lakhs kWh/month. CCI will also be able to curb the emission of over 840 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.

 

- "Optimizing operations with AI" Award

Tata Power Solar achieved another milestone with "Optimizing operations with AI" award in the recently held Microsoft Awards 2018 event at Bengaluru.

The award was given for leveraging Artificial Intelligence to improve current technology used in the organization.

The overall AI deployment at TPS helped us to rule out the use of conventional image processing and rule-based algorithms for sorting defective solar panels. This automated solution piloted on the shop floor operations.

Based on the observations, it is concluded that the solution resulted in substantial improvement in operational efficiency by improved throughput, reduced costs and higher long-term customer satisfaction.

This recognition proves that we have what it takes to be the market leader and set benchmarks within the industry.
