Overview: 202 kWp Solar Power Plant in Shab-Shib Rice Mill Pvt. Ltd
SunShell Power finished a 202.95 kWp solar power plant in Shab-Shib Rice Mill in Gop Kanji, Burdwan. The site is established on 3-acre land located at the junction of Kalna-Katwa Road and Dainhat Road, making its position advantageous for transportation. The nearest city, Katwa, is about 6km from the location. The project was developed by RR Solar & SunShell was the technology solution provider.
The rice mill, which has been operational for roughly 30 years, uses around 581000kWh of energy per year and incurs approximately Rs. 58 lakh in power costs. The sheets installed on the roof of the warehouses had a space of approximately 1800 sq. meter, among which 1200 sq. meter was shadow-free.
The problem of ever-rising electricity bills was catered by installing 105.3 kWp & 97.65 kWp rooftop plants on the South West & East side warehouses respectively. The plant generates approximately 40-42% of the total electricity needed for the facility.
A 300 mm Al channel mounting system with rivets was the mounting structure used here. Two high-quality ABB inverters of 2 x 100 kWp were used in the plant with FRP walkways, maintaining the highest safety standards. Lighting arrestors are installed at suitable locations and well calculated and perfectly positioned to protect the system against any lightning strikes.
