Operation And Maintenance Of 850 KWp Solar Power Plant At GRSE – Kolkata

Location: Kolkata
Capacity: 850 KWp
Purpose: Maintenance

Overview – Operation and Maintenance of 850 kWp Solar Power Plant

Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Ltd, or GRSE, founded in 1884, is India’s leading shipyards, located in Kolkata, West Bengal. Under the MoD’s administrative control, GRSE primarily caters to the shipbuilding requirements of the Indian Navy and the Indian Coast Guard. It also repairs and builds commercial vessels. Presently GRSE has also started building export ships in a mission to expand its business.

The shipyard has 3 solar projects inside the premises, commissioned at different times, which totals to 850kWh. Our work scope includes the comprehensive Operation and Maintenance of the said solar power plants, including cleaning solar modules at regular intervals, breakdown maintenance, fault detection maintenance, and the replacement of faulty switchgear to meet the generation guarantee.
When the solar plants are installed at a considerable height in a tin shed on high slopes, the solar plants’ cleaning and maintenance become difficult. Proper cleaning is imperative to the longevity and reliability of the solar plants, but the workers also need to be careful to avoid any mishaps. SunShell took extra care and ensured that all the workers had required safety gear like safety belts, harness, safety helmet, safety shoe, safety jacket, gloves, etc., to execute the work with perfection.
Some reputed solar EPC companies like Sova Solar Ltd, Kriti Solar, and Hindustan Solar have implemented the solar power plants that are present on the site.

7.5 HP Solar Water Pumping System With Dual Axis Tracker & Sprinkler
SunShell powers integrated the 7.5 HP solar water pumping system in the Chitmahal area in the Coochbihar district. This system aims to lift water from the nearby river and distribute it to the 8 hectares of land through sprinklers. This project was a first of its kind and was closely monitored by the Chief Minister’s office. The whole structure used 24 numbers of 72 Cells 325Wp Poly-Crystalline Solar Panels with a dual-axis tracker, operated manually by a single person. The dual-axis tracker helps track the sun’s changing positions due to the earth’s rotation and revolution movements and, in turn, helps capture the maximum amount of sun’s energy to be used for the system. One axis is azimuth, which allows the solar panel to move left and right. The other axis is elevation and allows the panel to turn up and down.

6.6 KWp On-Grid Domestic Rooftop Solar PV Power Plant: First Domestic project under CESC
Dr. Rajen Kumar Pandey, a renowned doctor and renewable energy enthusiast were the first to introduce a domestic net metering system for his residential solar rooftop power plant under CESC. Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid. If a home is net-metered, the electricity meter will run backward to provide a credit against what electricity is consumed at night or other periods when the home's electricity use exceeds the system's output.
