In an exchange filing on Monday, Tata Power said that its subsidiary, TPREL has signed power delivery agreement (PDA) with Neosym Industry, a leading Gray & S.G. Iron casting, manufacturing company in India. The deal is for 26 megawatts (MW) alternating current (AC) group captive solar plant to generate 59 MUs of power, annually.
“The project, located at Jamkhed, Ahmednagar in Maharashtra with an anticipated electricity generation capacity of 59 million units annually will start from March 2024,” Tata Power said in the filing.
The plant is expected to reduce around 32,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually. “This substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions aligns with India's commitment to combat climate change and underscores TPREL and Neosym's joint commitment to environmental stewardship.”
Earlier on September 1, TPREL signed a power delivery agreement of 'Group Captive Project' for 6 MW AC (8.75 MWp) with Chalet Hotels Ltd, an owner, developer, asset manager, and operator of high-end hotels, resorts, and a hotel-led mixed-use developer across India.
The plant will generate 13.75 million units of clean energy from renewable sources under this arrangement. It will also reduce carbon emissions by 9,762 tonnes per year, aligning with the common vision of both companies to build a brighter, cleaner future for the hospitality industry.
Last month, TPREL entered into an agreement with Sanyo Special Steel Manufacturing India Private Ltd (SSMI) for a captive solar plant, with a capacity of 28.125 megawatts (AC). The solar plant is projected to produce annual electricity of 61.875 million units (MUs), which will meet the energy requirement of the steel manufacturing unit of “SSMI”.
The company also signed a pact for a 4.4 megawatts (AC) project with the ANAND Group, an automotive systems and parts industry major. Besides, TPREL also secured a letter of award (LoA) for a 966-MWRTC hybrid project, which is marked one of the largest industrial round-the-clock (RTC) power purchase agreements within the group captive segment in the country.
