CEL energises 1 MW solar power plant in Wadhal village
Bholanath Sarkar, Chairman and Managing Director of Central Electronics Limited appreciated the dedication and the efforts of CEL’s engineers and officers in achieving the energization of the 1 MW (AC) Solar Power Plant during the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Manoj Sharma PROS, CEL informed that the work at this location has been a challenge right from the beginning of the project. The plant site is located 3km down from Naini on the NH-5 on tabular land in a valley just above the river Satluj. The engineers braved high speed chilling winds during the winter. Snowfall and heavy rains also hampered the progress of work. The lockdown during the COVID-19 also stopped the work but as soon as restrictions were lifted work started again. The company’s team of engineers worked late hours to ultimately completed the energization of the ground mounted solar power plant in presence of officials of SJVN Ltd. and supplied the power to the 22kV grid.
