Paras Energy develops rooftop-based Solar PV Plant

A power solutions provider in Nigeria, Paras Energy and Natural Resources Development Limited, recently developed a rooftop-based Solar PV Plant at Moundou, Republic of Chad for Solen Renewable Energy DMCC, Dubai.

In a statement, the Managing Director, Paras Energy, Mr. Yashwant Kumar, noted that the project was commissioned on an Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) basis, with a total project capacity of 560KWp spanning across three roof sheds.

He said: “Paras Energy ensured that the highest standard equipment was utilised for the project, which was procured from across the globe.

“They used only tier-1 equipment of the highest quality available in the industry. This is consistent with its core business philosophy of leveraging the best technical excellence, experience, and equipment to provide the best service to the customers.”

He noted that the success clearly highlights the competence of Nigeria-based companies and their ability to not only service requirements within the country but also expand overseas.

Kumar said it was the first project outside of Nigeria for Paras and a matter of pride for a Nigerian company to be setting up a solar plant overseas.

“A team of experts from Paras Energy travelled to the Republic of Chad and stayed till commissioning to ensure successful completion of the project.

“The overall environment was quite tough with limited access to local resources, the start of harmattan season, the onset of Malaria, and French as a local language.

“Despite all the odds, the team was successful in completing the project in record time of 30 days with charging within 20 days of PV module delivery at site,” Kumar said.

Paras Energy has more than two decades of experience in EPC of Gas plant/Substation/Transmission Projects and Operations & Maintenance.

It has also substantial experience in end-to-end solar systems with the latest technology PV Modules, Inverters & Storage systems.
