Fortum Connects 10 Megawatt Solar Plant to India’s Power Grid

Fortum Oyj, Finland’s largest power utility, has connected a 10 megawatt solar-photovoltaic plant to India’s electricity grid.

The plant, spread over 70 acres (283,280 square meters) in the Ujjain district of the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, will begin operating early this year, according to a statement from the company’s Indian unit.

In June 2013, Fortum purchased a 5 megawatt solar power plant in the state of Rajasthan. It will invest “tens of millions of euros” to build a solar portfolio in India, the company said at the time.
