Belectric commissions 250 MW solar project in Karnataka


German EPC services provider Belectric has commissioned 250 MW (AC) of solar capacity for Fortum Solar India in Karnataka. Spread across five sites, collectively the arrays are among India’s largest PV installations.

Belectric carried out the construction and commissioning work and will provide operation and maintenance services. A corresponding long-term O&M agreement was signed in 2018.

“India is not only one of the largest PV markets, but also one of the most challenging. That’s why we are particularly proud that we have delivered a new 250 MW (AC) solar plant for our customer Fortum in time and quality,” said Ingo Alpheus, CEO of Belectric Solar & Battery GmbH. “It is also by far the largest project we have commissioned in the history of our company. This underpins our strong position as a system integrator and general contractor for utility-scale ground-mounted PV.”

Jitendra Singh, CEO and managing director of Belectric Photovoltaic India, noted that together the installations represent the company’s largest project in India thus far.

“After the successful execution of the construction and commissioning phase, we are now looking forward to operating the solar plan,” said Singh.

Belectric Photovoltaic India expects to surpass 1 GW of PV installations in India this year.
