This pipeline, a prestigious project of the BPCL, Govt of India, running from Bina (Sagar, Madhya Pradesh) to Panki (Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh), is touted to be the main artery of fuel supply in eastern Uttar Pradesh. It will potentially fostering social and economic development in the region.


Statcon Energiaa has successfully solarised the ‘Bina-Panki Multi-Product Pipeline’.


Statcon Energiaa has designed and installed a total of 211.2 kWP ‘Hybrid Solar Solution’ along the 355 km-long pipeline – a 19.2 kWP at each SV Station.

SV (Sectionalised Valve) stations are installations at regular intervals along the pipeline so as to isolate each pipeline section during emergencies like gas leakages.

The solution includes the company’s indigenously manufactured Hybrid Solar Power Conditioning Units (PCU) that are essentially grid-tied plus battery storage. These are advanced bi-directional inverters that provide seamless power (less than 10 msec of changeover time in case of power cut). The battery bank is of 1200Ah 48V at each station along with its health monitoring.
