Belectric Commissions Two Rooftop Projects Worth 26 MW For Cleantech Solar

Germany-based  Belectric has taken a step further in increasing its footprint in India’s ever-growing solar industry by completing two large-scale PV rooftop projects for Cleantech Solar.

With a combined capacity of 26 MWp, the solar power plants are amongst Asia’s largest rooftop installations. The projects were developed by Cleantech Solar, the regional leader in solar energy solutions for corporate customers in Asia. On behalf of Cleantech Solar,  Belectric took control of the construction and commissioning of the large-scale projects.

“We are particularly proud to have completed these large-scale projects not only on time and quality but also in accordance with our high European health and safety standards,” explains Ingo Alphéus, CEO of  Belectric Solar & Battery GmbH. “This underpins our strong position in the Indian EPC market, which is not only one of the largest and fastest growing solar markets but also one of the most challenging.”

“We are delighted that these industry leaders have once again chosen Cleantech Solar as their trusted long-term partner. We are pleased to collaborate with  Belectric, which has a proven track record in rooftop solar deployment and shares our values of delivering high performing systems with high HSE & Quality standards. We look forward to working with  Belectric again for future projects,” said Raju Shukla, Chairman and Founder of Cleantech Solar.

The 16 MW system for Arvind Limited started full commercial operation in December 2018 while the other 10 MW system, installed at Apollo Tyres’ facility in Chennai, commenced operation this month. Both large-scale projects were constructed within six months while maintaining the highest Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) standards.

Jitendra Singh, CEO & Managing Director of  Belectric Photovoltaic India Pvt. Ltd, adds: “Besides these two projects, we are building a ground-mounted solar farm with a total capacity of 250 MW. This solar plant in Karnataka is going to be the largest capacity installation we have ever done in India. Construction works are well underway and we anticipate full commercial operation in 2019. With this and further projects, we are making great progress towards achieving our target of one gigawatt of project allocations in India by the end of this year.”

Together with the projects currently under construction and in development, the company is hoping to break through the one gigawatt level of installed capacity by the end of 2019.
