A partnership between the two companies was announced at Intersolar India in Mumbai last week.

Waaree will build the plant with responsibility in design, manufacture, supply, installation, operation and maintenance.

The plant is expected to be commissioned by March 2016.

Waaree director Viren Doshi said: ““This will be one of the biggest solar plants to be built in Western India at a single location. This  project provides us another opportunity to stand up to the expectations of all stakeholders in terms of supply capability and execution excellence. We have been able to meet as well exceed the expectations from our customer in our previously commissioned projects and winning this mega project is a testimony to the value that we are able to add to our customers.

“This contract gives us a further impetus in implementing the turnkey projects in the  solar sector. Solar sector in India is poised for huge growth and till date we have made a substantial contribution to the Indian Solar industry and will continue to do so in the future.”
