DVC plans 1,776 MW floating solar projects

Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) is planning to set up 1,776 MW of floating solar projects in four of its dams in West Bengal and Jharkhand, the two states that jointly own the corporation along with the Union government.

DVC has finalised a 50 MW solar project at Panchet, West Bengal, the tender for which has been floated. It has zeroed in on the L1 bidder for the Panchet project and the work order will be finalised in early October. The feasibility study of the solar projects, which are likely to utilise about 15 per cent of their capacities, was carried out by the Solar Energy Corporation of India.
