Chennai: Fortum Oyj, Finland’s largest power utility, has connected a 10 megawatt solar-photovoltaic plant to India’s electricity grid.

The plant, spread over 70 acres in Ujjain district of Madhya Pradesh, will begin operating early this year, according to a statement from the company’s Indian unit.

In June 2013, Fortum purchased a 5 megawatt solar power plant in the state of Rajasthan. It will invest “tens of millions of euros" to build a solar portfolio in India, the company said at the time. Bloomberg
