India’s solar module manufacturer Vikram Solar has secured a 140MW Indian solar plant project with the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC).

The solar project will be built at two places including Bilhaur and Kanpur, which are located in the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP).

The NTPC will install a 225MW solar plant in UP, and a 700-acre area has been allotted for this project.

Vikram Solar has been selected to commission the first allotment of the 140MW Indian solar project, which is expected to be completed by September next year.

Previously, we have handled 50MW solar plant project in Mandsaur, MP and 130MW solar project in Bhadla, Rajasthan for the NTPC. And, I am very glad to say that Vikram’s focus towards innovation, quality, performance, customer centricity, and execution has helped us to win this project.
