Company: Adani Renewable Energy Park Rajasthan Ltd
District: Jodhpur and Jaisalmer
Capacity Under Development: 2,000 MW
Total Planned Capacity: 10,000 MW
Projects at a Glance
|Title||Bhadla Park||Fatehgarh Park|
|AC Capacity (MW)||500||1,500|
|Standard plant capacity (MW)||50||50|
|Total Plot Size||3,285 acres||9,981 acres|
|Nearest Railway Station||Bap||Phalodi|
The selected project locations are in high solar irradiance zones which makes them favorable locations for solar PV projects. Also, the plot sizes are regular in shape allowing for optimum utilization of the resources from an engineering perspective.
The project will also have a boundary wall along its entire periphery, an on-site rain-water harvesting system and sprinkler mechanism for the maintenance of a green area, an administrative building, material storage shed and parking shed, a weather monitoring station, landscaped premises and aesthetically-designed buildings.

Power Evacuation & Transmission at Bhadla Solar Park
The proposed 500 MW Solar Park will be developed as two blocks (North & South). The North block will have a total capacity of 300 MW while South block will generate the remaining 200 MW of capacity.
|Transmission & Evacuation||Remarks|
|Pooling Substation (kV/kV)||2 x 33kV/220kV (North & South Block PSS)|
|Interconnection voltage level for the project developers to connect at the solar park pooling substation||33 kV|
|Details of nearest CTU/STU substation where the power from the Solar park pooling substation shall be fed||STU (RVPN)- 400/220 kV Bhadla GSS/ 5 Kms from North block Pooling station|
|CTU-765/400 kV GSS Nure Ki Bhurj/ 17 Kms from South block Pooling station|
|Details of internal transmission system (from each project to pooling substation)||33 kV cable to 33kV/220kV Pooling substation of AREPRL|
Power Evacuation & Transmission at Fatehgarh Solar Park
A transmission agreement has been signed between AREPRL and PGCIL for transmission of power from Fatehgarh Solar Power Park in Jaisalmer. The dedicated transmission system required for direct injection/withdrawl of power from the solar park has been finalized in accordance with the Provision of Electricity Act, 2003. The generation capacity of the park is 1,500 MW. Connectivity for 1,000 MW has been granted at a proposed 400kV pooling station (with a provision to upgrade to a 765kV station).
