Thin-film manufacturer Masdar PV has supplied a 1MW ground mounted PV plant in Roorkee, India, with 11,000 thin-film modules, the company has announced. The solar park, located approximately 180km from New Dehli, is operated by Metro Frozen Pvt.
The project, located on a site of almost 25,000m², is equipped with 1.4m² a-Si modules. The region is close to the Himalayas and local conditions present a challenge due to diffuse light and high ambient temperatures. Thin-film was therefore the preferred choice for the PV plant.
