Solar power plant commissioned at Bhathinda Air Force station for Military Engineering Services

A solar power plant with a capacity of 1.0 MWp has been commissioned for Military Engineering Services (MES) at Air Force station at Bhisiana, Bhathinda.

Su-Kam a leading company in power backup and solar solutions has rendered technical expertise in this project which is commissioned by Frigo Pvt. Ltd. Su-Kam had earlier installed 1.3 MW of solar off-grid power system at various north-eastern locations for Assam Rifles, Indian Army.

A successful example of 'Make in India', it is the first utility-scale project to be taken up by MES which has an overall plan of putting up 150MWp projects at various stations of Army, Navy and Air Force.

"The installation of the solar power plant is an important and necessary move. Not only it has the potential to reduce carbon footprints, it will also yield a good return on investment within a short span of time by saving daily power consumption," said Mr. Kunwer Sachdev, Founder and Managing Director, Su-Kam Power Systems Ltd.

The plant installed by Smart Roof Solar Solution Pvt. Ltd. (business associates of Su-Kam) at Bhisiana is ground mounted with a total capacity of 1000KWp. It has used 3125 number of solar panels producing DC power using solar energy. The panels have been mounted in fixed mode facing south and fitted at 30-degree angle from the horizontal base. It has two Power Control Units of 500 KW each for converting DC power into AC power. This power is stepped up to 11KW and has been connected to the grid.

The plant is expected to generate around 15 lakh units of power per year recovering the cost of the plant in six years. It will minimize the power consumption from the grid to almost nil since the plant is capable of generating and utilizing solar power.
