PV tracker firm Mecasolar has signed an agreement with Anchor Electricals, a Panasonic Group Company, to produce and distribute its products in India, and to supply them to Southeast Asia and Africa.

Anchor, which is already well established in the Indian renewables sector, will be supplying Mecasolar’s single-row horizontal tracker HYPERION-SR and the multi-row HYPERION-MR products.

Dinesh Aggarwal, JMD of Anchor by Panasonic India, said: “India is on an ambitious path of adding renewable energy, especially solar, the 2.63GW installed capacity in 2014 has increased to 22GW at present, an eight-fold increase. We would like to be an integral part of this growth by enhancing the efficiency of power generation in every possible way. Solar trackers are a very cost-effective way of achieving such an efficiency.”

Alexandros Giannis, CEO of MECASOLAR said: “We are truly proud to establish this production and distribution hub in India together with Anchor by Panasonic. Indian market and the surrounding regions constitute an exceptional area of interest for us and we could not imagine a more visionary approach than the synergy created with Anchor by Panasonic.”
