The site is in a hilly region and since the project commissioning was done during the peak winter season, the team had to face cold waves and the problem of zero visibility due to fog.
Also, the installation was done on the outskirts of the factory site where the ground was uneven which led to difficulties in transportation.
The Factory boundary is fenced but the forest area is very near, which also led to the risk of wild animals entering the premise.
There are also defined protocols & strict guidelines in terms of working hours. The team has exactly 8 hours to work per day and had to finish the project within a limited timeline. Moreover, the factory had numerous safety & Covid testing guidelines as protective measures.
The installation & technical parameters were quite high and the team had to ensure that the quality of work is not compromised. The look, including a 360-degree view of the project, cable length, and canopy all had to be perfect as the project was also monitored at every angle through CCTVs.
The installation team ensured that the project was at par with all Quality standards.
The project is one of the biggest Ground Mounted Utility-Scale Solar projects with 10 HT-250KW* GoodWe inverters powering the plant.
With cutting-edge technology and an extensive list of features, the HT series offers more yield, increased reliability, lower O&M costs, increased safety, and remote monitoring, making solar projects highly reliable. These outstanding sets of features were conceived to ensure the lowest levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and a utility that runs efficiently.
Century Plyboards is continuously working towards setting rooftop power plants in a timeline of 1 to 3 months with precision engineering that maximizes roof space and meets power demands at the least cost. GoodWe ensures that the return on investment on the rooftop power plants of our esteemed clientele is maximized and the realization is optimum. They also want to analyses the power usage and optimize the same for further Solar projects.
GoodWe is glad to be a part of Century Ply (India) Limited’s solar drive. And, this testifies to our resolve at maintaining and improving quality, performance, and customer-centricity.
