L&T officials today confirmed to Business Line that the company has won the order from Reliance Power for executing a part of the 100 MW solar PV plant at Pokaran in Rajasthan.

L&T did not wish to disclose the value of the “balance of systems EPC” contract, but industry sources put it at around Rs 4 crore a MW.

PV modules

The PV modules for the plant will be supplied by the American company, First Solar. L&T's job is to put up the plant for Reliance Power. The project is therefore a confluence of three large corporate entities — Reliance, L&T and First Solar.

Reliance Power, which is also a thermal power producer, is putting up a 300 MW solar park in Rajasthan. The effort is believed to meet its obligations to purchase (or produce) renewable power. A third of the proposed capacity will come under the PV technology, while another 100 MW will be a solar thermal plant, for which Reliance is partnering with Areva, USA. Reliance is yet open about the third 100 MW, sources said.
