Ayana and Maxeon commission 192 MWp Bikaner 1 solar project

Ayana Renewable Power and Maxeon Solar Technologies have completed and put into commercial service the 192 MW Bikaner 1 Solar Farm in Rajasthan. It is a utility-scale solar power plant built in the second half of 2021 and commissioned in December 2021. Maxeon Solar Technologies’ Performance 3 UPP solar panels were used in the Bikaner 1 solar power facility.

According to the reports, Maxeon’s performance line panels have up to 20.9 per cent efficiency and are engineered to withstand environmental challenges like shade, daily changes in temperature, and high humidity. Summers in the Thar Desert, where Bikaner is located, can reach temperatures of over 50 degrees Celsius, while winters can fall as low as minus 4 degrees Celsius. As per the company statement, Maxeon has deployed more than 9 GW of panels worldwide since 2015.

In February 2022, Greenko Group and Ayana Renewable Power entered into an arrangement to provide standalone storage capacity in India. Under this partnership, the companies would collaborate to create robust and dispatchable renewable energy solutions for industrial and distribution companies in India, including a round-the-clock power supply of up to 1 GW.
