ADVIK Hi-Tech Private Limited (AHPL) is one of India’s leading & global automotive component manufacturers. GeWiS Renewpower has installed a 337 kWp solar PV rooftop power plant on the metal sheet rooftop in their Pantnagar facility. The plant is spread over an area of 4600 sq. mtrs.
The Solar rooftop plant is amongst AHPL’s 1st steps on towards Green initiatives. The installed solar power plant is helping in reducing about 415 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
The solar power plant was installed to meet the enormous energy demand required for manufacturing. The plant is generating about 4.4 lakh units of energy annually and is taking up about 20% of the factory’s total energy requirement.
GeWiS has installed the solar power plant on the facility’s rooftop with half-cut PERC technology poly-crystalline modules from Canadian Solar; Multi MPPT inverters from Huawei , and BOS from reputed manufactures.
The solar plant is installed under the ‘OPEX’ form of financial model. In this, the system cost is paid by one of GeWiS empanelled investors. AHPL pays to the investor on an approved cost per unit for the number of units generated per month. The investor and AHPL have signed a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) for the same.
GeWiS is also taking care of the operation and maintenance of the solar power plant. GeWiS has installed the required safety equipment like safety lines and walkways which provide easy access to solar plants.
Indigenously developed data logger and reverse power protection system by GeWiS has been set up in the facility. This helps in online monitoring and curtailment of excess generated power during off days.
GeWiS is the preferred partner of AHPL and has also installed rooftop solar plant at its Bengaluru facility.
