CERA Sanitaryware is a leading manufacturer of high end showers, steam cubicles, and whirlpools, besides sanitary ware and faucets. Their Rooftop Solar Plant is one of the largest project of its type in the the entire state of Gujarat, includes 6400 solar panels spread across a roof of over 18,000 square meters. The total capacity of 2MW was installed by Harsha Abakus Solar in four phases – 500 kW in the each phase.
The biggest challenge was the inconsistent roof structure due to varied type of roofs on the facility and was addressed at the design stage itself to ensure smooth implementation of the entire project. One of the unique feature in the last phase was south-facing elevated module mounting structure on the north-facing roofs. This structure was implemented so that the space on north-facing roof would be utilized and will be able to generate energy at the same rate as the south facing roofs.
Despite extreme dust and other impurities released from the ceramic industry, we successfully executed and commissioned this project within the given timelines. Today, we continue to operate and maintain the plant and is generating electricity at a high CUF.
Rooftop – RCC as well as metal sheet
Synchronizes solar plant with grid as well as DG Set simultaneously
