Finnish utility company Fortum Oyj secured from Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Ltd. the right to construct a 250-MW solar facility in the Raghanesda solar park in District Banaskhata, Gujarat, India, it said in a news release Dec. 21.

The project is expected to cost about €135 million and to be commissioned in the fourth quarter of 2020. It will be qualified to a fixed tariff of 2.89 Indian rupees/kWh for 25 years.
