Skyfri secures asset operations for 31 MW floating solar project in Kerala


Skyfri has secured comprehensive solar asset operations of a 22 MW AC/31 MWp DC floating PV plant in India. The project is located in the state of Kerala. It was commissioned by Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL) and is owned by state-owned energy company NTPC.

Skyfri will deploy a 24×7 real-time monitoring system to identify faults using machine learning, ensuring optimized production time and better 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,” said Skyfri CEO Pratik Ghoshal. “This is a steppingstone for Skyfri into several more projects in the region.”

Skyfri delivers complete end-to-end solar asset solutions through its technology platform, which takes care of solar assets throughout their life cycles. It operates two business units. Skyfri Energy provides O&M and asset management services, while Skyfri Intelligence is  a technology platform that monitors solar plants. Together, the platforms oversee almost 2 GW of solar assets.

“Our technology accumulates data from more than 200 sites globally, and this latest add-on with floating solar will enable us to adjust our solutions onto a whole new segment,” said Skyfri Chief Technology Officer Aslan Shamsutdin. “This is also our first project where we will deploy drone-based inspection and management.”
