 MUMBAI: Statkraft BLP Solar Solutions, a joint venture between Norway’s State-owned utility Statkraft and Bharat Light and Power, has started generation at its 5 mw solar power plant in Karnataka, the company said in a statement Thursday. 


Statkraft BLP is in pact to sell power from this project to three clients in Karnataka, which include a five-star hotel in Bangalore, a subsidiary of a major German industrial conglomerate and a subsidiary of a German automobile parts manufacturer. The clients will be supplied solar power under the open access mechanism, the company said. 

The company has a strong pipeline of projects in multiple states in India and several clients are in conversation to procure solar solutions, said Statkraft BLP’s CEO Tejpreet Singh Chopra.
