Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) of Bangalore has contracted OPS India to supply the power conversion and system integration at the upcoming 3 MW solar PV project in Raichur, Karnataka. State-owned utility KPCL has selected BHEL, a major engineering and manufacturing company, to construct the new project.
BHEL is one of the largest engineering and manufacturing enterprises that operates in India’s energy and infrastructure sectors. The company provides services to India’s power, railway, telecommunication and transmission markets. It is currently estimated that 70% of power generated in India is produced by BHEL-manufactured equipment.
The Karnataka Government launched its solar technology program in 2009 with an aim to power 3900 villages to meet the energy of 5.0 million people. OPS India has had considerable involvement with Karnataka Government’s Solar Initiative. Karnataka’s first multi-megawatt pilot project, commissioned in 2009, utilizes OPS proprietary inverters.
This 3 MW grid connect project will begin construction in March 2010 with a completion date of June 2010. OPS will be supplying twelve units of 250 kW Grid Export Power Conditioners (GEC-250k).
