 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. 
 
The joint venture that was set up in 2015 has since then commissioned rooftop projects along with its first 5 mw solar plant. Statkraft also owns about 300 mw hydel capacity in India in a joint venture with Bhilwara Energy.
