Delhi-based clean energy firm Orange Renewable, a subsidiary of Singapore-based AT Holdings, has commissioned 140MW of solar PV projects in the Indian states of Gujarat and Maharashtra.
The projects include 40MW at the Charanka solar park in Gujarat and 100MW at Dhule in Maharashtra. Both were awarded by Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) via competitive bidding processes in 2016 using the viability gap funding (VGF) scheme.
Hemant Tikoo, executive committee member, Orange Renewable said: "The successful commissioning of our projects testifies our commitment and our relentless pursuit to accomplish the company's roadmap for future growth."
Naresh Mansukhani, CEO, Solar Business said: "We are delighted with this new development that indisputably demonstrates our focus on project development and execution capabilities in building clean energy assets."
Orange Renewable is focused on developing, constructing and operating wind and solar projects across India with presence in Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu.
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.
