In a statement released today, German EPC services provider Belectric announced it has secured the order for a 250 MW AC PV plant from Fortum Solar. It will install and provide operation and maintenance services for the plant that will come up in Rajasthan.
The German EPC services provider had commissioned an equivalent capacity for Fortum early this year. The plant is spread across five sites in Karnataka.
“At the beginning of the year, we delivered a 250 MW AC solar plant for our customer Fortum, safely, on time and with a quality build. I am delighted that Fortum has again placed its trust in us and awarded Belectric for its next large-scale solar project in India,” said Ingo Alphéus, CEO of Belectric Solar & Battery GmbH.
“This underpins our strong position as a system integrator and general contractor for utility-scale ground-mounted PV in the challenging Indian market. Together with the Rajasthan project, Belectric will break through the one gigawatt level of installed capacity in India this year.”
Jitendra Singh, CEO and managing director of Belectric Photovoltaic India, added: “[The new contract] goes to demonstrate that we are highly competitive in the Indian market and that our costumers recognize both our high-quality project management and health and safety standards. Belectric continues to maintain the highest standard of health and safety guidance, which, in the backdrop of the Corona pandemic, is more important than ever.”
