Hartek Power, an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) company based in Chandigarh has announced that it has successfully connected a 50-MW solar project to the grid in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh.
The scope of work of the 132/11 KV substation project, which happens to be Hartek Power’s first one in the state and its biggest in South India, involved complete turnkey solutions and post-inverter works covering the design, engineering, installation and commissioning of the power plant electrification and automation systems as well as pooling stations.
“Having achieved the target of connecting 250-MW solar projects to the grid by the end of financial year 2015-16, we have now set out on a mission of executing substations for another 250-MW solar project by the end of the current financial year. We uphold high quality standards and create immense value for our clients in terms of services and timely execution. That explains our growth as one of the fastest growing EPC companies in India,” said Hartek Singh, chairman at Hartek Group in a statement.
Hartek Power is targeting new opportunities in South India, especially in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana where the governments are proactive on the solar front. Other southern states are also following suit. Last year in Septemeber Andhra Pradesh recently came out with a 1,000-MW tender for a solar park, followed by another 1,000-MW tender in Kadapa district. Telangana also floated a 2,000-MW tender last year.
“Targeting some key developers who have been allotted projects under these tenders, we will shortly open an office in Hyderabad to tap the South Indian market.” said Singh.
