Godawari Concentrated Solar Power Plant

PlantPAx DCS to Control CSP Thermal Power Plant

Lauren-Jyoti built a 50-megawatt concentrated green field solar power plant for Godawari Green Energy in Rajasthan, India. The plant will be one of the first utility-scale solar thermal power plants that is commissioned in India. This project is part of the Indian government initiative to incentivize the growth of solar power to 20,000 megawatts by 2020. Rockwell Automation will provide a PlantPAx distributed control system power plant solution with solar field local controller panels.
