VEMC, a 72-year-old solar power company in India, has played an integral role in helping companies transition from electrical to solar energy. It has helped companies adopt smart solutions in solar power and taken over the end-to-end execution as well. In this blog, we take a look at how VEMC helped install solar rooftop systems and inverters on the industrial rooftop of Caravan Logipark Pvt. Ltd. and executed the project successfully. The site is located in Koproli, Uran, in the state of Maharashtra. The building authorities were looking to reduce their energy consumption and substitute it with a renewable source of energy.
The main challenges arose during the excavation work for AC cabling. The first step was to trench the road where there was already a lot of vehicle movement. Next, the cable had to be placed and sand and bricks had to be filled on the top or bottom of the cable. During the final termination phase, the grid had to be shut and the connection terminated. However, there was cold storage which couldn’t be shut for more than 15 minutes; otherwise the food stored will get spoilt. There was also a dearth of continuous light and so, it was arranged source like DG for cold storage.
VEMC steered the success of this project with effective time, cost, quality, team, procurement, and communication management. One example of this was during the excavation work for AC cabling. The team took the smart decision of trenching half the road first and installing the cables, and then taking up the other half. This ensured that vehicle movement wasn’t hampered. Moreover, the team worked at a stretch during shut down and ensured the DG was loaded at the same time as the grid shut down.
Safety Measure During Execution
VEMC ensured the execution of the installation was done with all safety measures in mind. Some of the measures taken were:
- Avoiding the use of mobiles or electronic devices during the installation
- Using crane and forklift managed by trained experts for unloading of modules and limiting the speed to 10 km/hr
- Constant training of installation staff to avoid any damage to modules
- Thorough checking of cable for damage before the cable routing process
- Limiting the speed of the boring machine within 10 km/hr during the earthing process
- Use of cotton, PVC, and leather gloves while fixing electrodes, handling backfilling compound, and connecting the electrical panel
- Use of welding goggles, face shields, and aprons during the welding system
Our post-installation feedback revealed that the client had savings of 4-5 lakh units of electricity monthly from this system.
