AMP Energy India, one of the fastest growing integrated renewable energy solution provider has launched one of the largest ‘Behind-the-Meter distributed generation projects in India’. The project is an 8MW solar project supplying power to L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad on an OPEX basis under a power purchase agreement (PPA)for 25 years.
With this project, L&T Metro Rail is transitioning to sustainable energy and reducing their carbon footprint in the process.
Speaking on the association with L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad, Pinaki Bhattacharyya, CEO, AMP Energy India said, “We are happy to partner with L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad on their drive to reduce energy costs by adopting sustainable energy sources and minimising carbon footprint. This 8MW solar rooftop project is one of the largest ‘Behind the meter solar projects’ in India. It is a particularly challenging project since it is a multi- location project and it involves working on operational metro stations only for a few hours at night. AMP India along with L&T Metro Hyderabad has ensured that the highest standards of safety are maintained throughout during project installation.”
The 8MW solar power project is spread across 25 metro stations, 5 depots out of which 2 depots have ground mounted solar system and 3 depots have roof mounted solar system and 1 carport with elevated solar system.
AMP Energy India recently inaugurated the solar car park in the presence of KVB Reddy, MD & CEO and Anil Kumar Saini, COO, L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad and delegates from AMP Energy India.
This solar car park is an elevated structure and is a part of the total 8MW of solar project being developed by AMP Energy India to supply power to L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad.
The project is being commissioned in phases and the entire capacity of 8MW will be commissioned soon. Bhattacharyya further added, “This project is an excellent demonstration of AMP Energy India’s capability of building large, complex and challenging distributed generation projects in the country.”
