  3. 3. Building blocks of our EPC Approach: Project Assessing feasibility is an integral part of setting up of a Solar Plant for Grid/ Non Grid connected power generation. The feasibility analysis covers the following analysis and assessments: Feasibility Solar Radiation Resource | Land/ Site | Commercial Assessment | Solar Technology – PV / Thermal Analysis Technical and Infrastructure | Regulatory / Legal | Institutional & Safety | Simulation and Performance Power Plant Power Plant Design: Forms the critical acceleration point in developing a Solar Power Generation Park. The design covers System description, BOM, System Diagram, Various Interconnections and Layout Design & BOM : An indicative BOM consists a detailed set of requirements for various services like Civil work, Modules, BOS- PSU, BOM Cables, Power Evacuation, Interconnection, Security, DG back-up etc Balance of System: Requires individual vendor selection process for equipments like Solar Modules, Mounting System, Inverters & transformers, Power stations, Metering Systems, Electrical cables, Junction Boxes, Control and Monitoring BOS Selection Systems and relevant Systems drawings and data Engineering, Procurement and Construction: Overall Project Execution including but not limited to Project Design -> Verify Permits -> Planned and unplanned Procurement -> Engineering services -> Construction Services -> Performance testing -> EPC Commissioning -> Final acceptance -> Plant Handover. Final Deliverable: Handover a functional solar power generating plant as per the contractual agreements O&M services include the provision of all the personnel and management systems necessary to safely commission, manage, Operation operate, maintain, and administer the business and technical aspects of the facility The key objective is to keep our and customer's investments productive, by continuously optimizing their operations with an aim to enhance availability, output, Maintenance efficiency and plant life The program for preventive maintenance and periodic repair ensures that the plant remains in peak condition. Financial analysis: Preparation of prognosticated cash inflows and outflows, cash flow analysis, techno-economical analysis Financial of the EPC, Commercial Risk and Mitigation matrix.

Independent of EPC Contractor Dependent on EPC Contractor •Technical Failure of Plant •Delay in Solar Plant completion • Revenue Contract Default • Capital cost over-run • Increased price of raw material • Operational cost – Inadequate Budgeting • Commodity Price Risk •Technology Obsolescence of Plant • Design failure of Plant • Inadequate Feasibility Analysis (Pre- EPC) • Inadequate Vendor Analysis for BOS • Inadequate Site Assessment and Generation Estimates • Financial failure of contractor / vendor RISKS • Inexperienced EPC contractor • Delay for Permits and Approvals • Ineffective Procurement Strategy • Inadequate Project Management – Timelines, Vendors, Resources • Inadequate Interconnections in Solar Array • Inadequate compliance to standards • Inadequate resourcing for Operations and Maintenance
  6. 6. Importance of a reliable and experienced EPC partner Any EPC project is liable to face the Risks outlined in the last section due to an inexperienced EPC partner. An experienced and reliable EPC partner plans for Risk Mitigation before the start of the project based on his on-ground experience in similar projects. Primary Risks • Cost overrun: escalations v/s fixed project cost. • Suppliers: integration hurdles. • Construction: resource mobilization, sub-contractor An Experienced EPC Contractor experience, productivity. brings the mitigating factors: • Project management: detailed planning to tertiary levels, leading to unforeseen risks. Compliance to Best Practices • Quality: poor site fabrication, selection of low cost yet Pre-EPC Feasibility Analysis Mitigation Strategy inexperienced vendors. Analysis Validation by Simulation • Procurement management: the risk of one time buy Price Competitiveness v/s experienced buying of equipment. Technologically sound • Engineering: risks of re-work, miss-outs, and Reliability with past experience inadequate man-hours. • Scheduling: tracking the project at sub levels, monitoring vendors. • Performance: overall plant output v/s individual equipment performance, emissions, reliability, plant availability.

  11. 11. Training and Education Solar energy being a new focus area, the level of awareness and knowledge about the same is limited. We conduct workshops which are conducted by solar energy professionals so as to make the decision making team of organizations aware of the advantages of going solar. The following topics are generally covered in such workshops: • Solar resource mapping • Govt. schemes and initiatives Workshops • Making load calculations • Intelligent budgeting • Solar Photovoltaic fundamentals • Case Studies and real examples • Solar thermal fundamentals • Product Showcase • Tools for solar techno-economic decision making In order to generate more and more knowledgeable experts and so as to establish a standard in the industry, we have designed two certification courses for professionals and amateurs according to the level of awareness and knowledge about the solar energy sector. Certification Program for Professionals: This program has been specially designed for professionals (electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, architects) who are well aware about the nuances of solar Certification energy, but haven’t yet mastered it. It lasts for seven days, and combines instructor lead training on solar Programs PV and thermal energy and offers both theoretical and practical exposure. Certification Program for Amateurs: This course is optimized for General & Electrical Contractors, Architects, Engineers, and Business Professionals / Consultants who are new to the solar industry. In 6 days of hands-on training, it covers the fundamentals of PV theory and applications, system design & estimation, and hands-on installation of typical residential & commercial rooftop systems.
