Emerging solar thermal plants in
India as on 2013
50 MW Solar Thermal Power Plant (EPCM)
Godawari Green Energy Project
• Lauren CCL is currently
management services for a
50 MW solar thermal power
• This project represents one
of three solar projects which
undertaking in India, with a
combined total of 200 MW.
25 MW Solar Thermal Power Plant (EPCM)
Cargo Power and Infrastructure
• Lauren CCL is currently performing
engineering, procurement and construction
management services for a 25 MW solar
thermal power plant located in Gujarat, India.
One, represents one of three solar projects
which Lauren is currently undertaking in
India, with a combined total of 200 MW.
ACME's first 2.5 MW solar thermal power
plant, partnered with eSolar, USA, has been
commissioned which will be scaled upto 10MW
at Bikaner, Rajasthan.
ACME Solar Thermal Technology
• State-of-the-art concentrated solar power tower
• Highly cost-effective and energy-efficient
• Scalable to 50-100 MW unit size
• The solar field design is in multiples of 4 MW and
scalable to 50-100 MW. Modules are planned based on
the size of the project
• Double-axis software-driven mirror tracking system
• Lightweight, small size of around 1 m2 flat mirrors
• More suitable for high ambient temperature and
designed for direct steam generation
• More efficient electricity generation from steam due to
higher temperature of steam without the use of any
intermediate heat transfer medium
• Less 'parasitic' energy use for plant operation due to
reduced movement of thermal mass
• Higher capacity utilisation-more MW hours produced
per MW of installed power equipment
• Lower cost per MW power produced. We can work in
the hybrid mode with gas, coal or biomass for the
optimum utilisation of plant
• This mainly consists of a steam turbo generator and its
auxiliaries, piping and the electrical transmission
• Grid-based solutions and Captive Power (CP) solutions
• Steam-based solutions (for process requirements)
• Complete EPC solutions
• Engineering and solar block provider
• O & M services
Solar Thermal Power Project
• World Renewal Spiritual
Trust (WRST), a registered
Charitable Trust / solar
research centre and a
sister organization of the
setting up a 1.0 MW solar
thermal power plant in
order to demonstrate and
multiply this alternative
technology for India.

About the Project
• After comparison of
technologies, the solar
technology has been
found most suitable for
• The Scheffler Dish is a
proven technology, and
WRST has 15 years’
with this technology.
The main advantages of the 60m2 parabolic dish with fix focus are:
- Cost effective / high output
- Relatively simple
construction, modular design.
- Innovative thermal storage concept
- Easy operation/ maintenance; all
components available in India.
- Inexpensive planar mirrors and MCcontrolled tracking system.
- Fixed receiver with no need for
flexible high pressure joints.
- No vacuum technology and no
metal glass sealing.
- Due to direct steam generation, no
heat exchanger and low parasitic
- Efficient use of land; the dishes can
be tightly placed.
- Power on demand and high
efficiency due to cogeneration.
• It is intended to set up the innovative
solar thermal power plant based on
the newly developed 60m2 parabolic
dish with 16 hrs steel core cavity
receiver and storage for continuous
operation with the following main

• The time frame for completion of this project is two
The project will be executed in two phases:
Phase I: Simulation and planning for the power plant
Phase II: Procurement and installation of the 1,0 Mw
el. power plant
01.2011 - Start of the project
02.2011 - Purchasing of components
03.2011 - Fabrication and installation
01.2013 - Test and commissioning
01.2013-01.2014 - Evaluation, report preparation
• The budget for the project is 66 Crs Indian
Rupees excluding cost of land.
• The WRST request for funding with the Indian
Ministry of New and Renewable Energy
Sources (MNRE) has been approved.
• The German Ministry for Environment, Nature
Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) is
considering to support this project.
Areva Solar Builds Giant Solar Farm In India
• In a north-western corner of
India, rows of steel and glass
are set to rise from the
ground to form what will be
one of the largest solar power
plants in Asia.
• The 250-megawatt project is
the first in India for Silicon
Valley-based Areva Solar,
which is benefiting from an
aggressive plan by the Indian
government to boost solar
energy generation to help
greenhouse gas emissions.
• The company will complete the
project in two phases, with the first
125 megawatts to come online in
May 2013, said Jayesh Goyal, the
company’s global vice president of
• The second phase will start
delivering power in late 2014 or

• Entegra is in advanced
discussions to undertake
CSP Projects in Rajasthan
and Gujarat; the two states
in India with the highest
characteristics. The initial
capacities of the proposed
projects are 10 MW in
Rajasthan , the projects can
be scaled up to 200 MW.
The projects will be first-ofits-kind in the field of CSP
based power generation in
