Lauren-Jyoti, a joint venture between Lauren Engineers and Constructors, a US engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company, and Jyoti Power Structures, an Indian counterpart, has awarded a $1.9 million (USD) order to Rockwell Automation and its Global Solutions team. Rockwell Automation will provide a PlantPAx-based power plant distributed control system (DCS) solution with solar field local controller panels for Godawari Green Energy in Rajasthan, India.
Lauren-Jyoti received the contract to construct a 50-megawatt green field concentrated solar power (CSP) plant for Godawari Green Energy. The plant will be one of the first utility-scale solar thermal power plants commissioned in India, resulting in part from the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, an initiative by the Indian government to incentivise companies to increase solar power in India to 20,000 megawatts (20 gigawatts) by 2020.
