October 4 (Solar) – German solar power plant constructor Belectric Solar & Battery GmbH said today it has been awarded a contract to build a 250-MW alternating current (AC) solar project in India by Fortum Solar India Pvt Ltd.
This is the largest project the company has won so far from a third-party customer, said chief executive Ingo Alpheus. Along with the 349 MWp (250 MW-AC) Limondale project, which Belectric is starting to build in Australia for its parent company Innogy SE (ETR:IGY), the Indian award reinforces the company's position in large-scale engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and operation and maintenance (O&M) for ground-mounted solar, the CEO added.
The Indian project is located in the state of Karnataka and includes five sites in a solar park with a combined capacity of 250 MW AC. Belectric plans to start construction in November.
