The hybrid power project has been signed as a memorandum of understanding between the external affairs minister of the Sri Lankan Government with that of the external affairs minister of India. Hybrid power systems are those power systems that generate electricity from two or more usually renewable sources of energy sharing a connection point. This is the energy project in the northern and the eastern parts of Sri Lanka after the recent agreements of the National Thermal Power Corporation’s solar venture in the eastern Sampurn town and Adani Group’s Renewable energy project in the Mannar and the Pooneryn areas of northern Sri Lanka. This project was agreed upon to build a hybrid power project to build two renewable power projects of 500 MW with an investment of nearly 500 million dollars. This project was signed between the representatives of the Adani Group, the Ceylon Electricity Board, the Sustainable Energy Authority, and the Board of Investment. The project will cost about 500 million dollars and is expected to be completed within one year. The project has effectively focused on building three major renewable energy projects by the Ceylon Electricity Board and the National Thermal Power Corporation in a joint venture to set up a 50 MW solar power park in eastern Sri Lanka.
Project Life Cycle
The hybrid power project will be focused on using renewable energy that is natural and infinite resources by using specialized technologies to harness solar and wind energy. The project life cycle can be classified into four phases in terms of development, construction and installation, operation and maintenance, and re-powering and decommissioning. The ultimate objective of the project is to produce affordable, reliable, emission-free electricity that helps the country to affordable energy for their homes and businesses sustainability and support larger climate commitments by all the levels of the government (Sathiyaseelan et al., 2019).
The project will be developed under the operation of the Adani Group, Ceylon Electricity Board, Sustainable Energy Authority, and the Board of Investment. It has also been considered with the senior officials in the State Ministry of solar power, wind, and hydropower project that has confirmed the signing of the agreements between these players for the renewable energy projects in Sampurn, Mannar, and Pooneryn. A component of the project development process is for the developers to engage extensively with the host communities and the need to ensure the understanding of the priority of the community and to reflect these priorities in the project design. The site for the new Wind and Solar development has already been considered. This is a critical aspect for a project to be sited responsibly and sustainability.
Construction & Installation
In the rapidly evolving field of renewable sources of energy storage and innovations are constantly being included in the construction and installation phase. Once the project is planned and initiated it needs to be completed with appropriate permits, contracts, and agreements that need to be in place for the construction and installation to begin. Smart grid, electronic vehicle charging station, network resilience initiatives, and grid transformation needs to be constructed in order to ensure energy storage. In this phase, the electric power production mechanism needs to be carried out in terms of the construction of small modular reactors. Hybrid systems combined nuclear reactors and renewable energy like a windmill or a solar power generator as electrical generators with an industrial customer and a grid tie-in.
Operation & Maintenance
The third phase is operations and maintenance in which the new project has been commissioned for use and the responsibility is handed off to a new team of operational staff to operate and maintain the site. The site owner must effectively use the employees to manage the entire equipment of the manufacturer and the combined responsibilities of the parties involved in it including the employment of the independent service providers. Wind, solar, and energy storage each have their own unique maintenance requirements. Operation and maintaining the wind turbines and the other aspects that are relevant to the complexity of the machines need to be done by...
