SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION ON INS-SARVEKSHEK
We created history! It is our privilege to became the core part of maiden project ever in the world – installing solar power on a war ship. MEDIO has successfully done this installation in a war ship from Indian Navy – INS Sarvekshek.
The survey class vessel INS Sarvekshak, attached with the Southern Naval command, has been fitted with 18 sheets of solar panels atop its hangar. It took about six months to put the entire system in place and we are now using solar energy for lights and a couple of air conditioners. The 300-Watt panels generate about 5.4 KW power.
One of the challenges of the project was marine environments were not suitable for normal solar panels as saline and humid surroundings would cause damage. Also, the wind speed which can affect the panels, which may get uprooted while at sea. So we had to look at flexible panels that had anti-rust properties, marine compatible, withstand high wind speeds, performing on flat installations and very low weight panels. Solution was to adopt POWERFlex panels from our principal – M/s Global Solar from USA.
The ship has 10 batteries which are used for storage. It took one year long tenure for designs and approvals. Finally the system was commenced on 8th of February 2017. We pay our sincere thanks to Ship Commander Captain Rajesh Bargoti and Chief Electrical Engineer Commander Sreejith Thampi for all their support in implementing this project. The Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi had appreciated the innovation when the project was put on display at the exhibition organized by the Navy headquarters.
