FIMER, the fourth largest solar inverter supplier globally, has installed its PVS980-58 2MVA (megavolt ampere) central inverter to power the country’s largest single-site solar power plant located in Rewa, Madhya Pradesh.

The 750 MW REWA Ultra Mega solar power project, which is also Asia’s largest solar park, is expected to reduce carbon emissions by up to 1.5 million tons of CO2 per year. The solar park consists of three solar generating units with a capacity of 250 MW each and spans 1,500 hectares of land.

FIMER has supplied its central inverters for 188 MW out of an aggregate 750 MW, through Mahindra Susten, for Mahindra Renewables.

The solar park, formally inaugurated by PM Modi in July this year, was developed and built by Rewa Ultra Mega Solar Ltd (RUMSL). It is a joint venture between the Madhya Pradesh Urja Vikash Nigam Ltd (MPUVNL) and the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI). The solar park will supply electricity to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

Besides, Mahindra Susten has also played a key role in executing and delivering the project within two years.

Speaking about the project execution challenges, Rakesh Singh, CEO for Utility and C&I at Mahindra Susten, commented “one of the major challenges we faced during the execution of this project was the hard strata of the land. The land was not conducive for digging cable laying trenches. So, the engineering team devised an innovative method for cable laying: the all-terrain cable tray, which makes use of the vertical posts erected for the module mounting structure. This is the first-ever solar PV (photovoltaic) project to use this innovative cable laying method.”

Significantly, Rewa solar project was built in extreme weather conditions where average temperatures can regularly exceed 40°C. The performance under hot conditions was also key to the success of the project and FIMER’s PVS980-58 2MVA central inverter was specifically suited for the site and the harsh climate conditions.

The inverter features a unique self-contained patented cooling system, which is designed for demanding applications and harsh environments, cutting maintenance costs and ensuring outstanding endurance.

Commenting on the development, Filippo Carzaniga, chairman of FIMER, said “We are proud to have played a key role in making Indian’s largest solar park such a success. Our solutions are designed to deliver outstanding performance under extreme conditions. This is a great example of innovative design in operation, with our long-lasting inverter helping to maintain uptime at this large PV plant, and more importantly, reduce carbon emissions and energy wastage for future generations.”

Rakesh Singh further added that “this is a highly innovative and prestigious project, with ambitious targets in line with our government’s vision. A key priority for us was to ensure that the inverter technology could consistently perform and work in the site conditions without compromising on the yield. We chose FIMER because the inverter was the best suitable model as per our simulation results. With a block size of 4MW design we achieved lower DC losses and higher generation with 1500V technology. We were satisfied at the prospects of long-term service and dedicated support from a reliable brand having decades of experience.”
