A 28 MW DC solar power plant has been successfully commissioned by SAEL Limited, an Indian developer of renewable energy and biomass. The plant has been laid out with solar arrays in the shape of fingers and is moulded like a hand palm with 15 sunlight based exhibit fingers associated by a border street and a 33kV transmission line for power clearing.
The solar park is close to Khawzawl district. Through its 100 per cent owned subsidiary, Sunfree North East Renewable Energy, SAEL has entered into a 25-year power purchase agreement with the Mizoram government’s power and electricity department. The plant’s installation and commissioning were carried out by SAEL’s in-house EPC team.
A high-wattage string inverter and high-efficiency mono-PERC modules are used in the construction of the plant. In addition, the LT/HT switchgear room’s containerised solution has been utilised to guarantee optimal temperature and ingress protection.
