May 7 (Renewables Now) - Germany’s Belectric Solar & Battery GmbH on Monday announced the commissioning of 26 MWp of rooftop photovoltaic (PV) plants in India on behalf of Singapore-based solar power plants developer Cleantech Solar.
Belectric’s Indian unit Belectric Photovoltaic India Pvt Ltd was responsible for building and commissioning the two systems, which it says are among the largest ones of their kind in Asia. Both facilities were installed within six months.
The 16-MWp plant was built for textile manufacturer Arvind Ltd, while a 10-MWp array was installed for Apollo Tyres at its facility in Chennai.
Apart from the two solar plants, Belectric is working on the construction of a 250-MW ground-mounted PV park in Karnataka, planned to go live this year. “With this and further projects we are making great progress towards achieving our target of 1 GW of project allocations in India by the end of this year,” said Jitendra Singh, CEE and managing director of the company’s Indian arm.
