Today, Adani Green Energy has said it has dedicated to the nation of India, the worlds largest solar plant. The solar plant is a 648-megawatt behemoth located in Tamil Nadu, India, with a grand total investment cost of 45.5 billion USD.
Set up by Adani Group, the plant was formally commissioned by chief minister J Jayalalithaa. It has been connected to the grid through a sub-station.
The plant has been built on 5,000 acres. Adani Group sourced equipment and machinery from various parts of the world to set up the plant in eight months. A total of around 8,500 people worked in a day to set up the plant in the stipulated time.
The plant comprises 380,000 foundations, 2.5 million solar modules, 17 miles of structure, 576 inverters, 154 transformers and 3,729 miles of MC4 cables.
“This is a momentous occasion for Tamil Nadu as well as the entire country. We are extremely happy to dedicate this plant to the nation. A plant of this magnitude reinstates the country’s ambitions of becoming one of the leading green energy producers in the world. I would like to express our deepest gratitude to the chief minister and the government of Tamil Nadu for their valuable support and guidance in achieving this gigantic feat,” said the group chairman, Gautam Adani.
