The solar power project at GRSE, located in Kolkata, India, represents a significant milestone in aligning with India’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2070. Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE), a renowned commercial and naval shipyard establishment, recognizes the importance of reducing carbon emissions, while also playing a vital role in India’s defence sector.
This grid-connected system incorporates net metering, utilizing six on-grid inverters with a capacity of 50 kW each. The project consists of 475 panels, specifically 540 WP Mono Perc Half Cut PV modules with 144 cells, generating a total capacity of 250 kWp. Completed within 120 days, this installation aims to save electricity while contributing to the country’s carbon neutrality goals. Despite the challenges posed by the elevated location, our team successfully delivered a sustainable solution.
