The Renewables arm of Larsen & Toubro’s Power Transmission & Distribution Business has secured the go-ahead to begin constructing the 300MW Jeddah Solar PV Power Plant. The turnkey EPC order has been received from the consortium of Masdar, EDF Renewables and Nesma Company.

The project is in Third Jeddah Industrial City, 50km south-east of Jeddah. This large utility scale power plant utilizes state-of art technologies including bifacial modules, single axial trackers, string inverters and robots for module cleaning. Commenting on the development, Mr. T. Madhava Das, Whole-Time Director & Senior Executive Vice President (Utilities), L&T said “We are thankful and happy to be a part of establishing major solar projects awarded under the umbrella of Saudi Arabia’s pioneering National Renewable Energy Programme (NREP) marking yet another milestone in our green technology path to enable clean energy transition.”
