Diesel Power Plant installation for BALCO

Brief Summary

Bharat Aluminium Company (BALCO) Korba, Chattisgarh, a unit of Vedanta Group, is a leading manufacturer of aluminium products. The customer needed a reliable power solution for continuous running of their smelter which, if interrupted by a power supply failure of more than an hour, could lead the molten metal to solidify which would lead to an expensive re-building process. Beating stiff competition, Jakson was chosen as a reliable partner to provide the emergency power to back up black start of 135 MW captive power plant at Korba. With the commissioning of the project in 2011, BALCO became first in the industry to go for black start system for 21 MVA capacity for their 4 x 135 MW power plant catering to huge power demand for the smelter. The project included Supply of 7 nos. 3000 kVA 6.6 KV DG Sets installed in a DG building erected by Jakson, LT-HT Control Panels, Transformer , Crane, BOT Civil Electrical & Mechanical work.

Rooftop Solar Installations for coaches of Indian Railways

Brief Summary

Jakson showcased its innovative engineering capabilities by successfully integrating solar panels on the roof of 50 coaches of Indian Railways. It was a complex design and engineering challenge to integrate solar panels on the roof of coaches that run up-to speeds of 120 km per hour. Each single coach was installed with twelve high efficiency polycrystalline solar panels. These solar panels were fitted on the rooftop using specially designed U-channels that were welded to the body of the coach. So far 50 coaches have been successfully integrated with solar panels and currently undergoing rigorous performance tests by the Indian Railways. The generated power will be used to power lights and fans inside the coaches for use by the passengers. On completion, this solar PV project will help Indian Railways to offset 221 tonnes of Co2 emissions and also achieve significant savings in diesel costs.
