With two solar projects for L&T Metro and Kochi Metro now successfully operational, this is AmpIn's third solar project for a metro line and its first metro endeavor in Maharashtra.
New Delhi: The Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (MMRCL), Nagpur Metro Rail Project, and AmpIn Energy Transition (formerly Amp Energy India), India's premier platform for the transition to renewable energy, have signed a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for a 6 MWp solar project.
For the purpose of carrying out all metro projects in the State of Maharashtra outside of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, the Governments of Maharashtra (GoM) and India (GoI) jointly supported MMRCL in 2015.
The whole capacity would be split among 19 locations, consisting of 3 Station Track Walls, 2 Depot Building Rooftop RCC installations, 1 Admin Building RCC installation, and 13 Metro Station Rooftop GI Sheds.
The solar project is anticipated to save Nagpur Metro 41% per unit by replacing around 36% of grid electricity with solar power. In terms of the initiative's environmental effect, during the project's lifetime, the carbon offset would amount to about 7,000 MT of CO2.
"We are thrilled to collaborate with MMRCL to provide Nagpur Metro with sustainable energy options. This effort is consistent with our mission to promote environmental sustainability and cleanliness. Mr. Pinaki Bhattacharyya, MD and CEO of AmpIn Energy Transition, stated, "Our experience with the successful implementation of two metro projects in different states positions AmpIn well to contribute significantly to Maharashtra's renewable energy goals for mass public transportation."
AmpIn is a well-known IPP for renewable energy in Maharashtra and a dependable partner for businesses looking to migrate to renewable energy in the region. AmpIn serves eight to nine of the state's most prestigious clients with an active portfolio of around 230 MWp of assets under the distributed generation and open access modes.
