SgurrEnergy India brings innovation in project design and engineering to world’s largest solar plant
SgurrEnergy India Pvt. Ltd. (SgurrEnergy India), a leading solar engineering consultancy in India, is pleased to announce that it was selected by Adani Power to provide solar engineering services to the world’s largest solar project, the 648MW (AC) solar project located at Kamuthi village in the Ramanathapuram district of Tamil Nadu, India.
Based on its strong track record of over 300 satisfied customers and over 6GW of solar projects which are either commissioned or under implementation, SgurrEnergy India was selected, following a rigorous tender process, out of eight local and international companies to deliver comprehensive engineering services. The project, which had a one year concept-to-commissioning timeframe, required engineering services within three months. SgurrEnergy India delivered all services on time and on budget, including the project concept, technology evaluation, energy yield estimation, quality assurance plan, detailed engineering, and other associated design services, to support the 648MW solar project.
“We selected SgurrEnergy India after evaluating a number of consultants as we quickly understood that they had both the capabilities to execute on a project of this scale, but also the local experience and resources,” commented Jayant Parimal of Adani Power. “We look forward to working with them on other projects.”
SgurrEnergy assembled its diverse, integrated team of experts to ensure an on time and on budget delivery, including solar advisors, electrical, civil, structural, and infrastructure engineers, plus project managers with a history of designing projects that maximize the value of the solar asset.
The 648MW solar project was pre-conceptualized with effective cost-to-benefit analyses for all the commercially proven technologies even before it was awarded to SgurrEnergy India. Multiple technologies and vendors were deployed to supply modules, inverters, and mounting structures to meet the large project’s strict timeline. Design innovation was implemented throughout the project, including a modular design to reduce execution time, and an eight row module table was utilized for the first time in India, reducing the project costs and construction timeline. Because land for the project was not all available at the onset, SgurrEnergy was very flexible in its design process in order to minimize land requirements.
“We understand the competitive markets our customers operate in and there is no room for error, especially when it comes to costs. As the market becomes more and more competitive, developers are realizing that design innovation and cost control go hand in hand. SgurrEnergy India is striving to eliminate cost unpredictability and ensure bankable projects, and we clearly delivered in this situation,” commented Mr. Arif Aga, founder and Managing Director, SgurrEnergy India.
