Sakri Solar Power Project

This is one for the best project in india. Indian is growing faster than the before. Now. We are having larger and best infrastructure projects in india  equal to other countries.Our country is looking forward to build mega construction projects soon.

The Sakri solar power plant in Maharashtra's Dhule district. It was under construction at Shivajinagar in Sakri Taluka some 70 kms from this tribal district headquarter in North Maharashtra. The project is being implemented by Maharashtra State Power Generation Company (MahaGenco) in 2010. The Solar Plant is built in 400 Acers & it was the world's largest solar power plant till date.

The entire solar photovoltaic power project in Sakri has a capacity to generate 150MW of electricity. 125 MW power to be generated at the plant, the contract for 75 MW has been given to Lanco Power for a Crystalline Silicon technology-based plant while the contract for the remaining 50 MW has been given to Megha Engineering, a Hyderabad-based company, for a thin-film technology-based plant.


The main feature of the Sakri plant is that it has a capacity to generate 150MW of electricity at a single place. The project is implemented with dual technology, with 100MW power to be generated based on Crystalline Technology using photovoltaic cells, whereas 50 MW of electricity would be generated using Thin Film solar cells. This technology uses solar panels to absorb and convert sunlight into electricity directly.

In this project there are several components includes 4 lakh solar modules, 6000 MT's of structural erection, 80000 foundations, 96 inverters, 120 LT/HT panels, over 2000 km. of cabling, over a million interconnections, on 420 acres of undulating and rocky terrain.

The solar photovoltaic power project in Sakri built at the cost of Rs.1642.50 crore is constructed on 381.56 hectares of land, and in three different blocks of 161, 171 and 42 hectares of land with 07.56 hectares of land being reserved for Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co Ltd (MSEDCL).
