Chandigarh-based Hartek Power has announced that it has bagged an order to set up a 220/33 kV substation, which would connect 130 MW of solar power supply to the grid in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan

The scope of the project includes complete engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the substation right from survey, design, engineering and testing to supply, construction, project management and commissioning, a company statement said.

Hartek Group Chairman and Managing Director Hartek Singh attributed the achievement to Hartek Power’s expertise in executing high-voltage turnkey substations. 

“The very fact that leading solar developers have chosen us for their projects over many other big players reflects our commitment to quality, timely execution of projects, world-class safety standards and globally acclaimed project management techniques,” he said. 

Singh further added, “Given the upbeat market sentiment, the renewed focus of the government on solar power and our unmatched expertise in the solar grid EPC domain, we are looking to make a difference in connecting solar power to the grid through the integration of our power system capabilities.”

The 130-MW solar project allotted by Maharashtra State Electricity Development Corporation (MSEDCL) under the National Solar Mission will pave the way for providing clean and reliable electricity supply in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan. 

Hartek Power has connected 1.9 GW of solar power to the grid with this order, the statement said. 

In May, Hartek India, the manufacturing arm of the Hartek Group has bagged an order to supply electrical low-tension (LT) switchboard panels for a rooftop solar project coming up in the state of Punjab for distributing power to about 20 jails spread across 15 districts in the state. The low-voltage electrical panels to be supplied for installations to the tune of 5 megawatts (MW) would help in the optimum distribution of an estimated 60 lakh units of electricity to all the jail buildings.
