Vikram Solar, Kolkata-based solar energy company, today announced it has commissioned a 10 Megawatt (Mw) solar power project for ONGC in Gujarat.
The project will power ONGC’s Dhaej, Gandhar and Hazira plant in Gujarat. The solar plant has been built to meet ONGC’s captive power usage.
The plant is segregated into eight blocks of 1.25 Mw each for better management and increasing efficiency. The use of polycrystalline technology will ensure that the system is self-sufficient in generating power.
The solar firm will also provide Operations and Maintenance (O&M) service to the plant for a period of three years from the date of commissioning. The project is spread across 56 acres of land and the solar plant has 44,144 modules powering the whole unit.
The solar project was inaugurated by ONGC Chairman and Managing Director Shashi Shanker.
