French floating solar specialist Ciel & Terre has completed its first FPV plant in India through its local subsidiary.
The 450kWp project uses Hydrelio float technology and is located on a pond at CIAL golf course at Cochin Airport in the southern state of Kerala.
Last year, Ciel & Terre created a subsidiary dedicated to the Indian market – Ciel & Terre India – and opened a local office in Bangaluru.
The firm also owns a manufacturing line in the region to produce a Hydrelio float technology locally. The technology in this project has a 5° tilt, which is suitable for the southern region.
Sterling & Wilson provided EPC services on the newly-completed plant.
The PV IndiaTech 2020 conference will continue to bring together all key domestic and overseas stakeholders, including government bodies, investors, and the leading companies today from manufacturing to O&M and asset management. To thrive globally as a major PV power beyond 2020, India has to succeed in unlocking its potential both to manufacture and to lay claim to quality utility-scale solar farms that are providing high returns on investment to site owners.
