This remarkable project is not only India's first floating solar installation within a steel power plant but also a testament to the industry's resilience in the face of challenges. The project utilized 19,936 Nos of 'Made in India' Hydrelio® aiR 1440 floats, which were carefully installed on industrial water body. To maximize energy production, Jinergy PV panels were installed in a 4-row configuration with pure south tilt.
The plant is comprising of two segments, each with an array island capacity of 5.44 MWp, resulting in a cumulative capacity of 10.765 MWp. The Hydrelio® aiR 1440 floats were designed to withstand maximum wind speed as per IS 875 Part III, a crucial factor given the project's location.
The Tata Steel Jamshedpur project presented unique challenges right from the start. It is an industrial water body in which the floating solar plant to be installed, Sub bottom soil is a sludge accumulation which is a difficult condition for conventional anchoring methods. The expert team at Ciel & Terre India overcame this obstacle with innovative unique Dead Weight Anchoring. Enormous concrete blocks were prepared and deployed in the water to provide stability for the floats, ensuring they remained stationary even in the presence of strong winds and waves. Material selection for such industrial areas with contaminated water is key factor to withhold the entire system for next 25 years.
The project covered a total area of 42 acres, with over 19 acres dedicated to float placement. This remarkable feat equated to nearly 45% coverage of the water body, demonstrating the project's commitment to efficient space utilization.
