Finnish firm Fortum has launched its 10 MW solar PV plant in Madhya Pradesh, the company said today.

It is the first greenfield solar project commissioned under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) Phase II.

The power plant will be operating based on a PPA signed by Fortum for 25 years with the Solar Energy Corporation of India.

The 10 MW solar plant shall offset more than 18000 tonnes of CO2 emissions equivalent annually, it said.
