Vikram Solar commissions 18.5 kW solar plant for Century Ply


Vikram Solar, one of India’s leading module manufacturers and a prominent rooftop solar and EPC solutions provider, has commissioned a rooftop solar plant for Century Ply (India) Limited at the company’s new headquarter in Taratala, Kolkata, India. The solar plant has a capacity of 18.5 kW.

The project is spread across 160 sq meters and uses 57 units of 325 Wp smart modules and a 15 kW  delta inverter. It will have an annual energy yield of 26.13 MWh and is expected to offset 13 tonnes of CO2 per year.

For this project, Vikram Solar has used its optimizer integrated smart Solivo modules. Solivo modules can harvest more power through Module-Level Power Tracking technology, where each module can be optimized to decrease the effect of shading, soiling or mismatch loss. With facilities like ‘Rapid Shutdown’ and ‘Smart Ready,’ Solivo smart modules can offer 30% more yield, increased reliability, lower operation and maintenance (O&M) costs, increased safety, and remote monitoring, making solar projects highly reliable.This is the second solar rooftop project for Century Ply that Vikram Solar has executed since 2018.

Neha Agrawal, Head of Corporate Strategy, Vikram Solar, shared on the occasion, “We are glad to again be a part of Century Ply (India) Limited’s solar drive. And, this testifies our resolve at maintaining and improving quality, performance, and customer centricity. For their new rooftop project, in addition to power generation, they also wanted to analyse their power usage and optimize the same. We offered them our Solivo smart modules which have app-based monitoring and controlling system with integrated junction box containing enhanced electronics for power optimization, safety and longer string design.  Looking at the benefits of these enhanced functionalities, Century Ply decided to go ahead with Solivo Modules.”

Vikram Solar is spearheading India’s solar revolution with 950 MW EPC capacity portfolio including commissioned and under execution, rooftop and ground mounted projectsThe company currently has a rooftop portfolio of 62 MW (including commissioned and under execution) and has delivered green energy solutions to government entities.
