ABB to build solar-powered microgrid at its largest Indian fab – Feedback

The Swiss-based power electronics company will install a 600 kW rooftop solar array at its production facility in Vadodara, and a PowerStore Battery grid that will manage the plant’s energy.

ABB India, the Indian arm of Swiss-headquartered ABB, is to build and install a microgrid at its largest manufacturing facility in India as part of the firm’s continued push for greater renewable penetration across its operations. The Vadodara facility in the Indian state of Gujarat is the largest fab in ABB India’s portfolio, and will receive a 600 kW solar rooftop array, battery backup and microgrid control system to help wean the plant off its current reliance on fossil fuels. ABB confirmed that it will use a PowerStore Battery grid stabilizing system together with a Microgrid Plus dedicated control system to help maximize the fab’s solar power output and ensure an uninterrupted power supply at a plant that currently employs 3,000 staff.
