Utility-scale solar developer BELECTRIC announced Monday that is has signed an EPC contract to construct a 104 MWp PV park in the Indian state of Telangana.

The entire PV project will be comprised of six sub projects which are expected to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2017. As part of the contract, BELECTRIC will provide a turnkey system for the installation — including transmission-line construction and bay extension.

Yogesh Dabhade, managing director of BELECTRIC India, said: “This solar PV project marks an important step to provide eco- and grid-friendly electricity to this region. All project details are approved, so we can start construction next week. We thank Think Energy Partners to have trust in our PV products and works”.

The Indian PV projects are owned by a consortium and were originated by Think Energy Partners — a US-based company that develops and finances solar projects in India.

Once the project is completed, more than 160,000,000 kWh of electricity will be fed into the Telangana energy grid on a yearly basis. This equates to an annual CO2 savings of around about 80,000 tonnes.
