Webdyn India crosses 4.2 GW mark, Fimer supplies inverters for solar-plus-storage project


Webdyn India said this week that it has supplied remote monitoring and power management solutions for 4.2 GW of solar in India, South East Asia, and Middle East.

The India unit of France’s Webdyn achieved the milestone within seven years of starting operations in India. Its power management solutions allow the synchronization of the diesel generators and PV plants.

Separately, Fimer said it recently supplied its 1 MVA inverters for an integrated solar and storage project in the Sun temple town of Modhera, Gujarat.

The project features a 6 MW grid-connected solar plant coupled with a 6 MW/18 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS). Additionally, the town is powered by 100 kW solar rooftop system, 50 kW of solar parking infrastructure, and 271 numbers of 1 kWp solar systems on residential buildings.

Mahindra Susten handled engineering, procurement, and construction duties.

“The project has a complexity of integrating the solar generation ranging from 1 kW to 6 MW and the battery system of 18 MWh. Susten design team analyzed each design aspect thoroughly while running various generation model simulations and concluded on final design,” said Pramod Kalyanshetti, chief commercial officer of Mahindra Susten. “All the equipment used in the project were analysed considering the reliability and long-term service. Considering the best design fit and their reliability, the Fimer PCS of size 6 MW is used for our Modhera project.”

Fimer supplied six 1 MVA power conversion systems for the BESS application. The solar inverter powers the load during solar hours, and the excess power charges the batteries. The system can also support load demand during solar deficit conditions.
