Module manufacturer and EPC contractor Vikram Solar has commissioned a 2.15 MW single-shed rooftop solar project for Keventer Agro Limited. The plant—located at Nilganj, North 24 Paraganas, in the state of West Bengal—has been built to increase at Keventer’s food processing plant.
The project is spread across 250×70 m2 and uses 6240 numbers of Vikram’s high-efficiency 345Wp monocrystalline modules. Further, it uses 18 ABB inverters (1×50 KW and 17×100 KW) to ensure performance of the energy system.
High-quality fibre-reinforced plastic sheet walkway for easy movement on the roof and state-of-the-art switchgear system for protection of the electrical system. The project is expected to produce 2.835 million units of electricity and offset 2647 metric tonnes of CO2 annually.
Vikram Solar’s business unit head-EPC, Kuldeep Kumar Jain said on the occasion, “We are hopeful that Keventer Agro will undertake more solar and other environment friendly projects in the future. As an organization, we look forward to participating in more such innovative projects in West Bengal and the country at large.”

Contribution to the clean energy revolution is our way of upholding India’s vision, and we appreciate Vikram Solar’s solution in this regards. Given the quality of execution and after-sales customer service accorded by them, they will be paramount in our decision- making for all similar ventures in the future.”
