FUTURE PROJECTS:
 
 
  • SOLAR ROOFTOP POWER PLANTS:
 
323 MW Solar Roof Top:Railway board has directed to float tender for 323 MW of rooftop solar projects of IR at various offices, station buildings and PUs. In this regard, tender has been floated for appointing a consultant for carrying out this project. Further, in the first phase, 100 MW of solar rooftop project is under process of execution.
 
  • SOLAR GROUND-MOUNTED POWER PLANTS:   400 MW Solar Power Project through RUMS:
 
Reva Ultra Mega Solar ( RUMS-a JV of Govt. of M.P. & SECI) is coming up with 1500 MW Solar Power Park in M.P. Solar power to Indian Railways shall be supplied through Innovative “Optimum Scheduling” mode wherein 757 MUs of solar energy (equivalent to 400 MW Solar power) with transmission capacity of 207 MW during solar hours. This unique arrangement of optimum scheduling shall enable to draw maximum energy keeping the LTOA requirement to the minimum thereby resulting in reduction of Tariff.Day time supply through existing arrangement can be replaced by economical solar power from proposed plant. Also, power from this solar plant shall be made available at CTU which will save transmission charges to Railways and better utilisation of transmission corridor. Solar power from this plant shall be utilised in various states for compliance of Renewable Power Obligation. 
 
  • 50 MW Solar power plant on Railway Land at Bhilai:
 
50 MW Solar power plant is being developed on vacant 122 Hectare Railway land of SECR at Bhilai through tariff based bidding through Solar Power Developer (SPD). Solar power generated from this plant shall be evacuated at CTU through nearby Power grid GSS from where it will be utilised in various states for traction application. Railway will enter in long term Power Purchase Agreement with SPD for utilization of solar power at a fixed tariff. Beside decarburization of Indian Railways, this initiative will enable Railways to fulfill its Renewable Power Obligation.
 
  • WIND POWER PLANT:
 
REMCL has invited a tender to meet the NSPO compliance of Central Railway (Maharashtra), for procurement of wind power approximate to 100 MUs equivalent to 54 MW onbehalf of Central Railway.
