Bosch Ltd, a supplier of technology and services, has commissioned a 4 MW solar project for the New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT).

The project, executed by the Bosch Energy and Building Solutions (BEBS) team in India, is a ground-mounted installation on a land area of close to 18 acres. It will deliver close to 20,000 units a day for the port’s captive consumption (equivalent to the power consumption of 5,000 urban households).

The Bosch team has leveraged its design and engineering expertise in innovating solutions for the PV (Photovoltaic) plant, along with NMPT and the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) to realise this solar project, said Venugopalan CM, head, Bosch Energy and Building Solutions.

The project will contribute to the long-term self-generation of power and to the reduction of CO2 to the tune of nearly 4,100 tonnes per annum. The solar plant will also act as the energy gateway for NMPT, as the main metering from the electricity grid is located at the solar plant itself.

“NMPT is the latest project executed by the Bosch Energy and Building Solutions (BEBS) team. Drawing on their wide experience, our design engineers have ensured that the project delivers long-term value for NMPT. The design of the solar plant is such that it will also allow for future expansion of the project,” said Venugopalan.
