Germany-based juwi group has completed a 135MW solar PV plant for Energon Soleq Ravi India Power Resources in the southern Indian state of Karnataka.

The plant covers an area of 243 hectares and is situated near the village of Guttigoli, Belgaum district. It is expected to generate more than 226 million kWh of electricity each year.

Operation and maintenance of the solar power plant will be performed by juwi India, which provides maintenance, monitoring and reporting services. With this project, juwi India’s current total O&M portfolio has reached 347MW and is expected to cross 500MW by this year’s end, the firm said in a release.

In related news, juwi has also finalised the contracts for building a portfolio of 250MW in South Africa after being selected as preferred EPC contractor for three utility-scale PV projects in bidding round 4.

“We are expecting financial close for these projects by the end of July. We also signed the contract with our client for the sale of our self-developed 138MW wind-farm Garob in the Northern Cape. We are expecting financial close for this project by the end of August,” said juwi COO Stephan Hansen.

In Australia juwi has also expanded its utility-scale solar PV project activities in Victoria and New South Wales, having recently launched a request for proposals seeking to acquire large-scale solar projects from developers and landowners in the respective states.
