New Delhi [India], July 9 (ANI): Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has successfully commissioned a 1.7-megawatt solar photovoltaic plant at Bina in Madhya Pradesh for the Indian Railways.
The plant will directly feed power to traction systems of Indian Railways. BHEL said the project is a landmark achievement as this is the first time that solar power is being directly used for traction applications.
The project was installed and commissioned in four-and-a-half months from the date of the joint land survey with Indian Railways for the Bina location.
