Vikram Solar has announced the installation of over 300 solar water pump projects in West Bengal and Odisha using the company’s solar modules.
Vikram Solar, one of India’s leading module manufacturers and a prominent EPC and rooftop solar solutions provider, has announced the installation of over 300 solar water pump projects in West Bengal and Odisha using the company’s solar modules.
The leading module manufacturer supplied solar modules to the Water Resource Department, Government of West Bengal for the installation of 140 pumps. These solar-powered pumps were installed with the objective of minor irrigation. Solar modules for 80 solar pumps were supplied to the Public Health Engineering Department, Government of West Bengal, and another 80 to Zila Parishad, amounting to the successful development of sustainable irrigation through 300 projects across rural West Bengal and Odisha.
Devendra Verma, head of Channel Sales, Vikram Solar said, “due to the unpredictable nature of rain in India, people in rural parts of the country have to work additionally hard for water. Solar water pumps are therefore an economical solution enabling farmers and residents in these areas to spend more time on their livelihood, rather than worrying about water on a daily basis.”
He further added “Vikram Solar believes that India’s solar pump scheme can make a positive impact in agricultural economics through better, faster, and dependable irrigation systems. Therefore, this is our attempt to bring reliability in such projects by offering best-in-class solar modules. Our humble contribution to this sector is a testament to the commitment we uphold to aid in India’s solar mission.”
Recently, we had reported that the firm had commissioned three new solar power plants for the Airport Authority of India (AAI). These solar energy plants were commissioned by the company at AAI airports of Dibrugarh in Assam; Gaya in Bihar; and Gondia in Maharashtra. Further, these three new solar projects have an aggregate capacity of 1.1 MW (or 1165 kW).
Following the development, the company is, now, having a portfolio of commissioning six solar projects for airports at Kolkata, Calicut, Dibrugarh, Gaya, Gondia, and Cochin in India till date, with cumulative capacity amounting to over 4 MW.
