On the way to development of Solar Power in India, country first grid-connected concentrating solar power (CSP) plant has been succesfully started by Godawari Green Energy Ltd. Located on the Jaisalmer district, this 60 MW Godawari solar power facility has employs a steam generation system from Denmark-based Aalborg CSP & Sojitz Corp. Now Godawari Green Energy estimated its CSP plant will produce around 130 GWh of electricity per year.

Aalborg CSP says its steam generator is designed to perform with a high gradient of up to 9 degrees C per minute, allowing a rapid ramp-up every morning and after transient clouds. The company says this capability can result in more than 30 minutes of extra operations during a normal nine-hour day, thereby increasing energy production by 5%.
