Astonfield commissions solar hybrid system for Indo Shell

Astonfield Solesa Solar today announced the commissioning of the 100 kW rpt kW solar-diesel hybrid system for Indo Shell Cast Private Limited.

"Astonfield Renewables, an independent solar power producer and Solesa, an Italian engineering and project management leader in solar projects, have partnered to deliver solar power solutions and the Indo Shell Cast's is the first project," Astonfield Renewables said in a statement.

The partnership between the two companies - Astonfield Solesa Solar - is aimed at combating rising energy costs in India, the statement said.

The company deploys customisable solutions that can save commercial and industrial businesses up to 30-40 percent on their diesel fuel costs.

Its innovative solar Photo Voltaic-diesel hybrid system, the Hybrid Power Controller, integrates solar PV with existing diesel generators and grid power to deliver low-cost uninterrupted power supply, the statement added.

Installed on Indo Shell Cast's factory campus in Coimbatore, this technology reduces costs by feeding uninterrupted power to the factory from a combination of three generation sources, solar, diesel gensets and the power grid.

"Many of our customers were surprised to learn how much money they can save on their power bills by integrating our hybrid control technology and solar PV-diesel system with their existing power supply," said Srini Viswanathan, Managing Director of Solesa Solar Engineering.
