Vikram Solar has announced that it has commissioned Eastern India’s largest single-shed rooftop solar project at Nilganj, North 24 Paraganas, West Bengal. The 2.15 MW project was awarded to Vikram Solar by Keventer Agro Limited.
The shed top solar plant has been built to increase the capacity of Keventer’s food processing plant as well as to leave a green footprint by using non-conventional energy at the Barasat plant.
The project is spread across 250m x 70m and 6240 nos. of Vikram’s high efficiency 345Wp monocrystalline modules and 18 ABB inverters (50 Kw*1 and 100kW*17) were used to ensure performance of the energy system. To uphold and satisfy safety requirements, Vikram Solar used high quality FRP sheet walkway for easy movement on the roof and state of the art switchgear system for protection of the electrical system. The project is expected to have 2.835 million unit energy yield and will offset 2647 metric tonne CO2 annually.
Kuldeep Kumar Jain, BU Head- EPC, Vikram Solar, said on the occasion, “We are glad to share that Vikram Solar’s focus towards innovation, quality, and performance has helped us to successfully commission this project.
