    Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi recently declared the village of Modhera in Gujarat as India’s first 24 x7 solar-powered village. FIMER supplied its 1MVA inverters for the BESS system and successfully executed the Integrated Solar Energy Project at Sun Temple Town of Modhera, District Mehsana, Gujarat.


    This is India’s first integrated state of art Solar Project. The battery energy storage system (BESS) is one of the largest to date under operation in India. The project was supplied through one of India’s biggest EPC players, Mahindra Susten.

    Additionally, the town is solar powered by a 100kW rooftop system on govt buildings, 50kW Solar parking infrastructure, 271 nos X 1Kwp solar systems on residential buildings and 150kWh Battery storage for the solar charging systems. This small town in the state of Gujarat is self-reliant on energy consumption now.

    The project which is a remarkable project features a 6MW grid connect system with a 6MVA BESS system with an 18MWh Battery energy storage system. FIMER supplied PCS of rating 1MVA x 6 nos for BESS application, During Solar hours, the Solar inverter powers the load and excess power charges the batteries, PCS can also support load demand during solar deficit conditions. FIMER PCS is also equipped with Black Start mode / Grid forming mode, during grid failure conditions FIMER PCS can form the Grid in V/F mode and other sources ( inverters) can synchronize to AC bus and start supporting load or charge batteries. If the grid comes back, PCS can operate in the grid following mode and act as backup whenever required. This is the first time the Bi-directional converter 1MW was supplied to Indian market.
