India-based module manfacturer Vikram Solar has shipped 52.6MW of solar modules to South Carolina-based developer Southern Current for a ground-mount project in the US.

Vikram Solar’s Eldora Grand Ultima Silver 72 cell polycrystalline modules are being used at the project site. Vikram Solar started plans to deliver in June 2018 and completed its dispatch in late August, having recently opened a local US office in Massachusetts.

Southern Current, which is based out of Charleston, develops residential, commercial and utility-scale projects across the Southeastern US.

Gyanesh Chaudhary, CEO and MD, Vikram Solar, said: “We are happy to be the chosen module partner for Southern Current. This goes to show how our modules meet with the highest international standards. We look forward to continue this association and hope that it is a long lasting one.”

Greg White, founder at Southern Current, added: “We are glad to partner with Vikram Solar through our Amicus Solar Cooperative, on this portfolio. Vikram Solar has demonstrated that customer satisfaction is a priority, and we look forward to additional partnership opportunities in the future.”

Hatem Hamam, head of sales, MENA, Vikram Solar recently blogged for PV Tech on the case for widening the global PV manufacturing base away from just a handful of countries.
