10 MW solar PV plant at Vishakhapatnam port, Andhra Pradesh by Jakson

In an effort to switch to renewable sources of energy to power the country's major ports, the Ministry of Shipping signed an MOU with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) in October 2015 for the development of solar power projects at major ports across India. The plan is to set up 91.50 MW of solar energy capacity at the twelve ports across the country.

Visakhapatnam Port is one of 12 major ports in India and the only major port of Andhra Pradesh. It is India's second largest port by volume of cargo handled. Jakson Group successfully commissioned a 10 MW solar power plant at Vishakhapatnam port, Andhra Pradesh.

Jakson provided complete turnkey EPC services that included design & engineering, procurement, supply of equipment and materials, testing, inspection and commissioning including comprehensive operation and maintenance for a period of 7 years.

The plant generates approximately 150 lakh units of electricity, to be used primarily for running day to day operations of the port. Any additional units generated, will be sold to power utilities using net metering facility.
