Metal Sheet Rooftops
Whirlpool of India is a leading home appliances manufacturer. In view of reducing the cost of electricity, the company decided to install solar power plant. The plant is installed on East-West facing roof of the factory. The panels are given a South tilt for maximising power generation.
Persistent Systems Limited, a Pune based IT giant came up with a flagship initiative of donating the solar power plants to Indian Railways. 160 kWp was installed at Pune Railway Station in the first phase, followed by Hyderabad Nampally Railway Station. The project is funded by the Persistent Foundation, the CSR arm of Persistent Systems Limited.
The system is installed on the RCC rooftop of the facility. A large portion of the solar plant has been installed on an elevated structure. The idea was to use the space beneath the elevated structure as a rooftop cafeteria or as a space for conducting company events and functions.
Mumbai Airport, being a 'brownfield airport', there is not much vacant land to install the solar power plant and hence, Sunshot analyzed all the possible roofs for solar installation. A world-class solar power plant has been installed in an extremely high-security zone; adhering to all the airport's safety and security standards.
The solar plant is installed on 4.4 meter high structure on the 9th floor of the building. The space below the solar plant is being used as a banquet hall.
