Inspira Martifer Solar, a specialist in turnkey EPC solutions, has made its first venture into the Indian rooftop PV market by signing an EPC contract with Mapro Foods.
Under the contract, the company will construct a 350kW PV array on the rooftop of Mapro Foods food processing factory in Wai, Mahabaleshwar in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Once installed, Inspira Martifer Solar will provide operation and maintenance services for the project.
The PV array will utilise 1,210 modules which will help to generate an estimated 580MWh a year. The construction, which is scheduled to complete in February, will involve a total of 50 workers.
“This contract with Mapro Foods confirms two facts: firstly, it proves the competitiveness of photovoltaic solar power in the Indian market, facing other renewable and non-renewable sources. Moreover, it endorses our aim to take a leading position on the rooftops segment, for which we count with the bet of other industrial and commercial sectors in the near future”, said Shrirang Bhandiwad, CEO of Inspira Martifer Solar.
