Su-Kam commissions 70 kWp Grid Tie Solar Power Plant for National Hydroelectric Power Corporation (NHPC), Faridabad
Su-Kam has embarked on a mission to provide solar power solutions to various corporate and government establishments to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy. In line with the same, the company has installed and commissioned a 70 KWp Grid tie rooftop solar power plant at NHPC in their Phase-II office complex at sector-33, Faridabad.
The 70 kWp Grid tie solar PV system on the rooftop of the NHPC building shall generate over 85 thousand units of electricity/year thereby helping NHPC corporate office to save over 7 lakh rupees in electricity consumption annually!
The Solar PV system installed by Su-Kam comprises of 280 nos. of 250Wp solar panels, mounting structure, 2 nos. of 30 kW & 1 no. of 20 kW Grid tie String inverters, Scada for remote monitoring, desktop and printer for data logging and water pump for cleaning of modules.
Customized structure by Su-Kam
The authorities at the newly constructed NHPC phase-II office complex building were averse to any puncture or anchoring in the roof via the foundation to withstand structure and PV module load.
To comply with the said requirement, the Su-Kam solar team did a detailed engineering analysis and drew out a customized plan to accommodate the panel and structure load without puncturing the roof and delivered a solution. The solar PV plant installed at NHPC is unique as the foundation and module mounting structure has been designed on the “dead load concept with interconnected grid matrix” thereby avoiding any effect on the waterproofing of the roof by avoiding any damages to the same. It also gives huge stability to the PV structure in bad weather conditions.
Key Solutions provided by Su-Kam:
Su-Kam’s engineering team did a detailed engineering analysis that enabled them to define the proposed mounting structure of the PV system and other system components as per NHPC’s requirement.
Su-Kam has chosen best in class and most suitable components for the Solar PV System. The quality and reliability of the parts is one of the most important criteria for Su-Kam’s successful project commissioning.
Erection and Commissioning:
Su-kam installation team undertook the entire erection and commissioning process including system installation, system integration, civil work and power evacuation set-up.
Su-Kam completed the project with the quality, reliability and functional requirement of the SPV system. The solar system which was commissioned on 25th March, ’14 was completed in a record time of 3 weeks.
