The firm is currently executing 134.5 MW of solar projects to be commissioned by September 2019 and will surpass cumulative installation of 350 MW by the end of this financial year.
Mumbai-based Oriano Solar has commissioned two solar power plants worth18.75 MW capacity located at Rawan (12.5 MW) and Hirmi (6.25 MW) in Chhattisgarh.
The company was the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor for these projects. These plants will generate clean energy that will offset annual carbon dioxide emission of 22,000 metric tons and have created 235+ construction jobs over a period of 3 months.
“These solar PV power plants, jointly developed by Aditya Birla Renewables Limited and Ultratech, contribute to achieving India’s Solar Energy goal of 100 GW by 2022. With high construction quality and execution, Oriano team constructed the solar PV project in a very short time of fewer than 3 months,” said Samir Dash, Vice President – Operations, Aditya Birla Renewables.
Yeshwant Rao, Co-founder & MD of Oriano, said, “We are committed to the construction of high-quality solar power plants in India.”
