FIMER supplies central inverter to Rewa ultra mega solar park

India, Madhya Pradesh, Rewa: FIMER has installed its PVS980-58 2 MVA central inverter to power the country’s largest single-site solar power plant, at Rewa in Madhya Pradesh.

The Rewa ultra mega 750 MW solar park is predicted to reduce carbon emissions by up to 1.5 Mt of CO2 per year. It consists of three solar generating units with a capacity of 250 MW each and spans 1,500 ha of land.

Developed and built by Rewa Ultra Mega Solar Ltd, the solar park will supply energy to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. It is a joint venture between the Madhya Pradesh Urja Vikash Nigam Ltd. and the Solar Energy Corporation of India.

Mahindra Susten, one of India’s leading IPPs and EPC companies, played a key role in executing and delivering the project within two years. Commenting on the success of the project, Rakesh Singh, CEO for Utility and C&I at Mahindra Susten explained: “One of the major challenges we faced during the execution of this project was the hard strata of the land. The land was not conducive for digging cable laying trenches. So, the engineering team devised an innovative method for cable laying: the all-terrain cable tray, which makes use of the vertical posts erected for the module mounting structure. This is the first-ever solar photovoltaic project to use this innovative cable laying method.”

FIMER’s PVS980-58 2 MVA was specifically suited for the site and the harsh climate conditions. The inverter features a unique self-contained patented cooling system, which is designed for demanding applications and harsh environments, cutting maintenance costs and ensuring outstanding endurance.

“We chose FIMER because the inverter was the best suitable model as per our simulation results. With a block size of 4 MW design we achieved lower DC losses and higher generation with 1,500 V technology. We were satisfied at the prospects of long-term service and dedicated support from a reliable brand with decades of experience,” added Rakesh Singh.
