Ampin Energy Plans 6 MW Solar Project Installation In Maharashtra

The solar project is expected to replace 36 per cent of grid power with solar power for Nagpur Metro, resulting in a remarkable 41 per cent savings per unit 

 Plans to develop a 6-megawatt solar project for the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation. (MMRCL) have been announced by AmpIn Energy Transition. AmpIn has formally inked the 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for this project, which is the company’s first metro project in Maharashtra and its third solar venture for a metro train.

Founded in 2015 as a special purpose company with joint sponsorship from the central and Maharashtra governments, MMRCL is responsible for managing the execution of all metro projects outside of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The solar project for the Nagpur Metro Rail Project will be carried out in two packages, each with a capacity of 2.5 MWp and 3.5 MWp, for a total of 6 MWp.

Nineteen locations—including the rooftops of two depot buildings and thirteen metro stations—will host the solar arrays. The plan intends to save Nagpur Metro 41 per cent per unit by substituting solar power for 36 per cent of grid power.

Previously known as Amp Energy India, AmpIn Energy Transition brings a wealth of experience to this project, having completed two solar projects for metro systems in two distinct states: Kochi Metro and L&T Metro. Building on its prior achievements in the industry, Pinaki Bhattacharyya, MD and CEO of AmpIn Energy Transition, expressed confidence in the company’s ability to significantly contribute to Maharashtra’s renewable energy ambitions for mass public transit.
