Mahin­dra EPC in­stalls first diesel so­lar PV hy­brid sys­tem

Power Watch India - - DISPATCHES NATIONAL -

Mahin­dra EPC has suc­cess­fully in­stalled its first diesel gen­er­a­tor and so­lar pho­to­voltaic (DG-PV) hy­brid so­lu­tion at Mahin­dra’s en­gine fac­tory at Igat­puri. This sys­tem has In­dia’s high­est so­lar to diesel ca­pac­ity ra­tio of over 80 per cent. This in­tel­li­gent so­lu­tion ef­fi­ciently in­te­grates a PV sys­tem with ex­ist­ing and new diesel gen­er­a­tor sets. Mahin­dra EPC’s DGPV hy­brid pro­vides sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits to power in­ten­sive in­dus­tries and com­mer­cial es­tab­lish­ments. This so­lu­tion can also be used as a re­mote mini-grid to pro­vide a con­sis­tent and clean sup­ply of power while low­er­ing op­er­at­ing costs. On an av­er­age, elec­tric­ity cost is re­duced by 50 per cent and diesel con­sump­tion is re­duced by 40 per cent. Mahin­dra EPC of­fers the DG-PV hy­brid so­lu­tion in sizes rang­ing from 5 kilo­watt to 1 megawatt.

Bas­ant Jain, CEO, Mahin­dra EPC, said, “We are de­lighted to part­ner with the Mahin­dra en­gine fac­tory at Igat­puri for this pi­lot project. Their con­tin­u­ous support has en­sured that our in­stal­la­tion suc­cess­fully passed rig­or­ous tests and was com­pleted in record time.”
