Major PV project developer and EPC firm, BELECTRIC is almost doubling its PV power plant footprint in North America with plans for plants in both California and Puerto Rico, totalling 60MW.
BELECTRIC said that its US subsidiary would begin construction before the end of the year with completions expected around mid-2014. Once completed, BELECTRIC would have an installed base in the region of 140MW. The company has a global project pipeline of around 5GW.
Dr. Karl Markert, CEO of BELECTRIC USA said: “Securing these project rights represents an important step for BELECTRIC USA in establishing itself in the highly competitive US market. We are proud to be a part of the future of energy supply in the USA. Once the projects are completed, BELECTRIC USA will have built over 130 MW of PV power plants in the US alone. The decisive factors in winning the contracts were the professionalism, commitment, and motivation of our employees – they are the reason we were awarded these projects.”
The company did not disclose the project partners involved or financial terms.
