Asia’s largest private sector solar PPA 30MWp solar farm in Tamil Nadu

Solar farm in Tamil Nadu

Overview
CleanMax Solar, India’s largest provider of solar power, inaugurated a 30 MW solar farm in Dindigul, Tamil Nadu in March 2017. The solar plant is spread across an area of 142 acres and supplies energy to India’s largest data centre company. Being ‘Asia’s largest private sector solar PPA’, this 30 MW solar farm will contribute approximately 30% of the power requirement at the largest data centre in Chennai. CleanMax Solar’s vision was to develop the farm with the best equipment including trackers, inverters, photovoltaic and power distribution technology. Most critical aspect of the project was to select the right technologies and make a significant differentiation by having highest generation and lowest footprint of MV distribution.

Quick Facts

  • LocationTamil Nadu, India
  • Capacity30 MW
  • Type of ModulesPolycrystalline Silicon
  • Annual generation45 million units per annum
  • Carbon dioxide abated38,500 tons annually
  • Date of commissioningMarch, 2017

Challenges

  • Unfavourable and uncommon onsite conditions such as irregularly shaped land parcels and strong wind
  • Environmental and geotechnical problems such as high levels of airborne dust and sloped terrain

Solution
Performance above expectations
When compared to the simulations, the plant is performing 10% more than the expectations. We chose NEXTracker for its advanced technology, performance and reliability of its single-axis tracker system as well as its active local support team for establishing a solar farm in Eluvanampatti. The plant is the first deployment in India of high-efficiency Solar Ware® Samurai inverters by Toshiba Mitsubishi-Electric Industrial Systems Corporation (TMEIC).

As the trackers feature fewer foundations and assembly points, it provided us the flexibility needed to construct solar power plant under challenging conditions. We aim to provide clean energy solutions with innovative ways to improve plant performance.

Automatic switch on logic has been implemented first time in the world for any solar farm to reduce stress on the T&D system and power transformer. This project is a benchmark of good quality engineering, procurement, and installation.

Highlights

  • 30 MW installation for India’s largest data centre company
  • The 93,750 polycrystalline PV modules will track the sun for maximum power generation using advanced NX Horizon single-axis trackers
  • The plant is the first deployment in India of high-efficiency Solar Ware® Samurai inverters by Toshiba Mitsubishi-Electric Industrial Systems Corporation (TMEIC)
