Kattupalli Port  installs  on-grid solar generation plant

Kattupalli Port installs on-grid solar generation plant

Kattupalli Port has utilized the breakwater rock area for the installation of an on-grid solar generation plant, with an installed capacity of 15KWp.

According to a press release from the organization, the solar plant will generate around 20 MWH (Megawatt Hour) and avoid carbon emission of 16.4 tCO2 (Total Carbon Dioxide) per year. It has about 34 number of 450 watts capacity solar modules, each designed with mono PERC technology, which requires lesser area for installation. 

These solar modules fitted on elevated cantilever structure are designed to withstand adverse weather conditions and windstorms.

The port plans to extend this project to a 700 Kwp (kilowatts peak) solar generation plant, which would cover the entire 2 Kms of North Break Water. 

The plant will generate around 900 MWH (Units) and avoid carbon emission of 738 tCO2 per year. The target is to complete this project by the end of July 2022.  The green energy generated from the on-grid solar generation plant will be used to charge the batteries of electric vehicles, which will be deployed at the port soon.
