Based in Western India, Gujarat – the Mundra Solar PV Limited (Adani Group), placed an order with Thermax for five Double Effect Steam Driven Chillers, each of capacity 2000 TR. For the working of the chillers, the steam is extracted from the customer’s coal based power plant boiler. The chilled water is used for production area air-conditioning application and also part of chilled water will be consumed in the solar PV production process.
Conventionally, copper, copper nickel or stainless steel tubes are used in the chiller’s absorber and condenser section but since Mundra Solar Pv Limited uses sea water directly, corrosion resistant titanium tubes are being used.
The Adani Group is one of India’s leading business houses with revenue of over $9.4 billion. Adani has grown to become a global integrated infrastructure player with businesses in key industry verticals – resources, logistics and energy.
