Lauren-Jyoti, a joint venture between Lauren Engineers and Constructors – a U.S.-based engineering, procurement and construction company – and Jyoti Power Structures, an Indian counterpart, has awarded a $1.9 million order to Rockwell Automation for a 50 MW concentrating solar power (CSP) plant in India.

Rockwell Automation will provide a PlantPAx-based power plant distributed control system with solar field local controller panels for Godawari Green Energy in Rajasthan, India.

The plant will be one of the first utility-scale CSP plants commissioned in India, resulting, in part, from the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, an initiative launched the Indian government to incentivize companies to increase solar power in India to 20 GW by 2020.
