Oriano has commissioned a 70 MW DC (50 MW AC) captive solar project in Chhattisgarh, with power evacuation being done at 132 kV.

Godawari Power and Ispat Limited, a subsidiary of HIRA Group is the project’s offtaker. The capacity is a part of HIRA Group’s 172 MWp open access photovoltaic (PV) order. The project’s remaining capacity is scheduled to be operational by January 2023. The 70 MW DC captive solar plant is established on 184 acres of land at Kakrel, Nawagaon, and Baigatola villages in the Rajnandgaon district of Chhattisgarh. It uses 540 Wp mono passivated emitter and rear cell (PERC) modules with half-cut cell technology. The remaining system components including solar inverters from Toshiba Mitsubishi Electric Industrial Systems Corporation were manufactured in India.
