Apr 7, 2016 12:13 IST

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) in the first week of April 2016 commissioned a seasonwise tiltable canal top solar PV plant at Bhimavaram in Andhra Pradesh.

It is the first canal top project in Andhra Pradesh. Also, it is the first such project executed by BHEL.

The project is developed by New and Renewable Energy Development Corporation of AP Ltd (NREDCAP).

Key highlights of the plant

Plant’s power generation is about 10 per cent more than a fixed Module Mounting Arrangement (MMA).

The elevated control room with bottom cable entry prevents ingress of water during floods.

The Module Mounting Structure (MMS) is a unique design incorporating additional functionalities like lighting, cable support and fencing into the MMS.

It also features a movable walkway, which facilitates efficient maintenance of the plant by providing easy access.
