Sterling and Wilson Solar Limited, one of the world’s largest solar EPC solution providers, has bagged a US$ 99 million (Rs 747 crore) contract to construct a 194 MW project in the United States of America.
The project—awarded to the company’s US subsidiary Sterling and Wilson Solar Solutions (SWSS)—is being developed by a leading sustainable energy company, and will be co-located in an area that has substantial wind development in operation.
“Construction for the project will commence in September 2020 and [the project] will be commissioned by November 2021”—read a Sterling and Wilson statement.
SWSS will manage the entire turn-key execution for the solar project. Once commercially operational, the plant will produce enough solar energy to power over 35,000 homes, reducing approximately 275,000 metric tonnes of carbon emissions.
The plant will use bifacial modules to increase production of power density.
Speaking about the project, Amit Jain, Country Head, SWSS, said, “We are delighted to have been awarded this project in USA, which has some of the best renewable energy resources in the world. Sterling and Wilson Solar Solutions, Inc is focused on technological efficiency, performance, consumer centricity, and execution which has helped us to win and build projects in this strategically located market.”
SWSL (along with its subsidiaries) has commissioned numerous high-performing solar power projects globally and has to its credit around 9.2 GWp projects in various geographies. This portfolio includes a 1,177 MWp solar project in Abu Dhabi—one of the world’s largest single-location solar PV plants.
SWSL also manages a portfolio of 7.4 GWp of O&M projects globally, a testament to its best-in-class services.
