Following the sun for a greener tomorrow

Overview

With reduced tariffs, the Solar plant costs have reduced significantly in last few years. While the EPC industry has been continuously innovating to cut costs by design innovations and in some cases careful dilution of specifications in non-core areas, further cost cutting seemed to be a big challenge in near future. At Mahindra Susten, we realized this pressure from our esteemed customers and instead of playing with the quality of plants to further cut costs, we chose to offer a differentiated value based products based on our EPC experience, strong R&D, and Innovation strengths. These products include Tracker, Inverter Container, Combiner Box and MMS.

Our core objective is to deliver indigenously designed and developed best in class reliable products at economical rates to improve plant efficiencies.

The Mahindra Susten Product team has a dedicated team focussed on design, development, supply quality and execution of our Products. Innovation, Quality & Reliability is at the heart of component design. All products have been stress tested under harsh environmental conditions & accelerated cycling tests.

With over 270MW under various stages of execution Our flagship product MSAT 100 is on its way to becoming the Tracker choice for Indian Market.

Our customers include GRT, Rane, Kiran Solar, Saketh Solar, Premier Solar and Mahindra & Mahindra.

Single Axis Solar Tracker (MSAT100)

Harness the power of the sun using MSAT100, the single axis tracker by Mahindra Susten. The MSAT100, an innovative offering from Mahindra Susten, is an indigenously designed & developed tracker thereby providing best-in- class quality at affordable prices. MSAT100 gives you the flexibility of choosing an array layout upto 60/63 module in the standard layout. Optional designs based on land profile can be set up in undulated terrain at optimum cost.

The tracker can help to substantially increase the generation potential of your solar setup. Utilizing our collective Solar EPC experience of over 1 GWp+, the MSAT tracker has been designed. We have supplied 500+ trackers & installed 10+MW tracker at sites in TN, AP & Telangana.

Benefits - 24% increase in generation observed at installed sites.

The MSAT100 Advantage

  • MSAT100 has been designed keeping Plug and Play philosophy in mind which allows easy installation without any welding requirement. 
  • It’s a tracker system with fixed tilt simplicity. No additional power cables and UPS are needed at the site with our design. 
  • Susten provides cut to length Wire harness with fuses on positive side This eliminates wire cutting hassle at site, making the MSAT100 truly PLUG & TRACK.
  • Installation Ease: Plug and play system with wire harness lets you install the tracker in the same amount of time as that of a fixed tilt
  • Reliability: Accelerated life tests of 25years conducted on bearing and actuator along with ERTL (Government Lab)

Why use a tracker

  • Tracker generates 16 to 24% more energy comparing to Fixed Tilt System based on site location 
  • As compared to static panels,moving panels gather less dust. Higher Equity returns up-to additional 3% 
  • Flatter curve allows for:
    - Effective gain maximization in states having TOD tariff
    - Less Open Access Charges per Unit due to higher CUF
