NTPC To Conduct Study On 130 MW Floating Solar Power Plant In Tripura

National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) will conduct a feasibility study for a 130 MW floating solar power plant on Dumbur Lake in Gomati district of Tripura.

 The cost of this study will be around Rs 450 crore and it will be completed in a few months.

The proposed plant will be Tripura’s first floating solar power plant and will be a significant step towards the state’s target of 200 MW solar power generation by 2030. 

Tripura has an average solar power capacity of 2080 MW.

Presently NTPC is running a 100 MW floating solar power project at Ramagundam in Telangana. 

Floating solar plants offer several advantages over conventional solar plants. It do not require land, which may be lacking in some areas, and can help reduce evaporation from water sources.

The Rastavit plant will provide significant support to the state’s renewable energy sector and help reduce Tripura’s dependence on surface power plants.

This will improve air quality and create jobs in the solar sector. The feasibility study will be implemented by an expert team from NTPC and Tripura Renewable Energy Development Agency (TREDA).

The study will evaluate the technical and financial feasibility of the project, as well as the environmental impact. 

If the feasibility study is successful, NTPC will go ahead with building the plant. The estimated completion of the plant will be in the year 2024.

The proposed floating solar power plant is a welcome development for Tripura. 

This will help the state meet its renewable energy targets and reduce its dependence on electrical energy. The plant will improve air quality and create jobs in the solar energy sector.
