The solar power plant has a capacity of 22 MW AC/ 31 MWp DC, and is the largest in the state of Kerala. The delivery includes 24/7 real-time monitoring system which identifies faults using machine learning, ensuring optimized production time, and increased efficiency of operations and maintenance.
“This contract is a milestone for Skyfri as a company. For the first time we are expanding into the floating solar segment, one of the fastest growing opportunities in renewable energy globally. The project is commissioned by BHEL, and owned by the state owned energy company NTPC, and is a stepping stone for Skyfri into several more projects in the region. The award is a evidence of the quality of the Skyfri platform and technology,” says CEO of Skyfri, Pratik Ghoshal.
Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) is the leading EPC player in the solar industry in India with an overall EPC portfolio of more than 1.2 GW. The company offers EPC solutions for both grid-interactive and off-grid, ground mounted, rooftop, floating and canal top solar plants. In addition, BHEL also manufactures space-grade solar panels and batteries for space applications. NTPC is India’s largest energy conglomerates, and the corporation stands for most of the energy production in India.
“Our technology accumulates data from more than 200 sites globally, and with this latest add-on on floating solar, we will be able to adjust our solutions onto a whole new segment. This is also our first project where we will deploy drone based inspection and management. Taken in consideration that floating solar is one of the fastest growing parts of the solar industry, Skyfri will be well positioned to build dominating solutions and technology within all verticals in solar,” says CTO of Skyfri, Aslan Shamsutdin.
