Su-Kam, India’s leading power back up, generation and monitoring company in India, has supplied, installed and commissioned a 90 kWp solar power plant for the R&D building of Engineers India Limited (EIL) in Sector 16 in Gurgaon, Haryana in January 2014.
The state of the art 90 kWp Grid tie solar Photovoltaic system on the rooftop of the EIL building shall generate over 1.25 lakh units of electricity/year thereby helping EIL save over Rs 10 lakh rupees in electricity consumption annually! The entire system comprises of 3 Nos. of 30 Kw Grid Tie String inverters fitted with 300 Nos. of 300Wp solar panels.
Entire project installed, commissioned and to be maintained by Su-Kam for 5 years
The Su-Kam team of engineers was responsible to draw out a detailed engineering analysis that enabled them to chart out the best system design to define the proposed mounting structure and other system components as per the EIL requirement. The Su-Kam solar installation team undertook the entire erection and commissioning process including system installation, system integration, civil work and power evacuation set-up.
All the components selected for the system are best in class while meeting the strong quality and stringent norms as per the requirements of the system and EIL team. The project management team from Su-Kam ensured that the solar PV system was installed while meeting stringent quality, reliability and functional requirements. The solar system which was commissioned on 28th December, ’13 was completed in a record time of 4 weeks.
Area available for erection of 90 KWp plant on the rooftop of the newly constructed EIL building was not sufficient for installation of the standard design.
- Module mounting superstructure
The Module Mounting structure of the system has been specially designed and customized according to the limited space available on the EIL building rooftop. As area available for erection of 90 Kw plant on the rooftop of the newly constructed EIL building was not sufficient for installation of the standard design, the Su-Kam solar team did a detailed engineering analysis and drew out a meticulous customized plan to accommodate the 90 kWp plant and delivered a solution meeting the stringent norms of the EIL team.
The resultant solution charted out has been able to overcome the problem of space constraint and other requirements of EIL. The team has made a seamless structure to avoid inter module and pergola shadowing that would have reduced the efficiency of the panels otherwise. The structure has also been designed on the dead load concept with no penetration in the rooftop thereby avoiding any effect on the waterproofing of the roof by avoiding any damages to the same.
The Su-Kam team has devised SCADA which is a data logging system provided for remotely monitoring plant performance on a regular basis including electricity generated, ambient temperature, wind speed, module temperature and solar irradiance. This remote monitoring system enables easy maintenance from a far off location.
