The Veltoor Solar Power Project in Telangana, owned by SE Solar Ltd, Suzlon’s Special Purpose Vehicle with CLP India, has been awarded the world's first solar project quality certificate for a photovoltaic plant. According to Suzlon, it is the world’s first, and currently only, global guideline for certifying solar PV projects.

The certification by DNV GL awarded to the 100 MW Veltoor Solar Power Project conforms with all relevant safety features required of a solar park, and demonstrates the technical compliance of the project with globally recognised standards.

The certification process encompassed an overall evaluation of the asset, with an in-depth review of the design basis, design, grid code compliance, manufacturing process, transport and installation, commissioning and optionally in-service phases.

Rajiv Mishra, Managing Director of CLP India, said, “Operational excellence is part of our DNA and CLP maintains the highest quality standards across all facets of our work. As the only certification body that provided complete guidelines for PV projects, DNV GL has worked hand-in-hand with us to help the Veltoor project meet our quality objectives.”

J. P. Chalasani, Group CEO, Suzlon said, “Suzlon has demonstrated turnkey capabilities in both wind and solar, giving us a strong competitive edge in India. With such capabilities we aim to harness the emerging opportunities in wind-solar hybrid, which is gaining traction in India, with around 5 GW of bid pipeline already sanctioned.”

The solar project by CLP India was developed by SE Solar Ltd., a special purpose vehicle (SPV) of Suzlon Energy Ltd and CLP India. This joint venture marked Suzlon’s and CLP India’s entry into the solar energy sector.
