Adani Group launched world’s largest solar power plant in Tamil Nadu

The world’s largest solar power plant with an installed capacity of 648MW was commissioned at Kamuthi in Ramanathapuram district of Tamil Nadu and will supply enough clean, green energy for 300,000 homes.

The plant was formally commissioned by chief minister J Jayalalithaa, set up by Adani Group. It was connected to the grid through a sub-station.

The plant was spread across 2,500 in the town of Kamuthi, finished on a time record of eight months as they sourced equipment and machinery from various parts of the world. There are a total of 8,500 people worked in a day to set up the plant in the stipulated time.

“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.

The $679 million solar park consists of 380,000 foundations, 2.5 million solar modules, 576 inverters, 154 transformers and 6,000-kilometers of cables, the Deccan Chronicle reported.

National Geographic recently featured the Adani solar plant in their “Megastructures” series documenting its construction process.
