ABB’s Indian subsidiary has been chosen to supply solar inverters to 750 busy railway stations in north India for Indian Railways and solar developer Azure Power. Azure had won 46MW rooftop PV from Indian Railways back in March.
Inverters used will range from 5-50kW.
Indian Railways is actively reducing its reliance on traditional energy supply for its 8,000 stations. The company’s network has a current renewable energy generation capacity of 36MW and plans to ramp this up to 1GW. ABB is helping Indian Railways in reducing GHG emissions through deployment of solar energy at railway stations across India.
