IBC SOLAR, a global leader in photovoltaic (PV) systems and energy storage, have continued their success in India with their sixth PV power plant located in Rajasthan in the north of India. Last week the 22.5 MWp project Phalodi was commissioned on time and handed over to the investor. IBC SOLAR have doubled the size of their previous project for the second time in a row. TÜV Rheinland confirms highest German engineering standards.
With this 22.5 MWp project, IBC SOLAR continue on their road to success in India. The new utility-scale PV plant is located near Phalodi in Rajasthan which is one of the federal states with the largest amount of installed solar capacity in India. The project was a cooperation between IBC SOLAR Projects based in Mumbai and their parent company in Germany. While IBC SOLAR in India had the lead and overall responsibility for the project, the engineering and technical supervision was done by the German parent company, who also provided some key components.
The project is a combination of IBC SOLAR group’s local competencies and IBC SOLAR’s global standards. Shailendra Bebortha, Managing Director of IBC SOLAR in India, is particularly proud that despite all challenges the project was finalised on schedule. He remembers, “Engineers and construction crew had to fight loose sand, as well as temperatures as high as 45 degrees Celsius.” With this project IBC SOLAR has managed to double the size of their projects for the second time in a row. The project also marks the important milestone of installing more than 50 MWp solar capacity in India.
Customer of this project is the LN Bangur Group, who has worked with IBC SOLAR for several other large-scale projects. Mr. Shreeyash Bangur, Director of LN Bangur Group says, “The synchronization of the 20 MW AC solar plant at Phalodi in Rajasthan marks a significant milestone in our drive to grow our portfolio of clean and renewable energy generation. The Project has been commissioned more than three months ahead of schedule.”
The plant has been certified by the Bangalore branch of TÜV Rheinland, a leading provider of technical services worldwide, according to IEC62446, the PV plant combines the highest German quality standards, maximum cost efficiency and best operating results.
