Plant has installed 60660 numbers of WAAREE make 330 wp Polycrystalline solar modules, two Inverter duty transformers of 6250KVA, & one 3500KVA, five inverters of 3125 kw
WAAREE Energies, one of India’s largest solar module manufacturer and a leader in the EPC segment, has announced the commissioning of 16 MW ground-mounted solar project in Gavhankund, Maharashtra. The project, was executed for Waacox Energy Pvt. Ltd under the agrifeeder scheme of Maharashtra Govt for MAHAGENCO.
This plant is developed under the aegis of the Chief Minister’s solar agriculture feeder programme. A solar agriculture feeder is essentially a 1-10 MW community scale solar PV power plant, which is interconnected to the 33/11 kV sub-station. The major advantages of this scheme is that apart from ensuring day-time reliable power for the farmers, it requires no capital subsidy from the government. Rather, it is cost-effective, thereby enabling reduction in subsidy.
Developed in the Warud Taluka of Amravati District, the plant is expected to generate more than 78,600 MWh power yearly. Plant has installed 60660 numbers of WAAREE make 330 wp Polycrystalline solar modules, two Inverter duty transformers of 6250KVA, & one 3500KVA, five inverters of 3125 kw. The Evacuation shall be at 33kV voltage Level at Temburkhera & Shendurjana (warud) Substation.
Commenting on the completion of this prestigious project, Hitesh Doshi, Chairman and Managing Director, WAAREE Energies, said, “Agriculture is a major consumer of electricity, accounting for one-fourth or one-third of consumption in many States, Access to groundwater for irrigation depends on reliable and affordable electricity supply to run groundwater pumping.”
Doshi added, “With the commissioning of this project we shall be able to contribute toward addressing concerns of livelihoods of the rural poor and food security of the country. The timely commissioning of this project reiterates our commitment towards high quality both in terms of seamless execution and time-bounded delivery mechanisms.”
