Sunny Central makes one largest PV power plant a success
A 40 MW PV power plant in Rajasthan, equipped with 37 SMA Sunny Central 800-CP inverters has gone into operation last February. The Nagaur PV power project by Azure Power is the largest solar power plant under the National Solar Mission at a single location in India so far.
Azure Power was able to commission the project earlier than scheduled due to an early preparation of the site facilities and a quick completion of the installation activities. The SMA service engineers from several service hubs were thus able to complete the commissioning of the PV power plant within just 1 week. In advance, SMA service engineers had also supported Azure Power experts during the pre-commissioning phase.
“Azure Power has continuously demonstrated its commitment to inclusive growth through clean energy generation for grid connected, rooftop and off-grid initiatives across India. We are in-line with the Government of India’s ambition of adding 20GW of solar power by 2022. Our vision of providing affordable solar power for generations drives us to carry out extensive research and development in order to bring down the cost of energy for the end consumer. We have partnered with SMA Solar Technology AG since our first plant and are satisfied with the performance of the Sunny Central CP inverters,” said Inderpreet Wadhwa, CEO, Azure Power.
For the extremely dry, hot climate in Nagaur in summer, large temperature variations and highly irregular rainfall the Sunny Central 800-CP inverters with their robust outdoor enclosure and with the intelligent OptiCool cooling concept are perfectly suited. The plant will be instrumental in offsetting about 66,000 tonnes of CO2 per year, and hence would help contribute to climate change mitigation.
