Suntech has supplied 9.3MW of solar PV modules to a solar power plant developed by Adani Power Ltd. in Gujarat, India. The solar power plant is expected to generate 13,000MWh of electricity per year and power approximately 32,000 local households. The project is completed and fully connected to the grid.
"We are excited to collaborate with Adani Power to develop and deploy solar solutions in India," said Xiong Haibo, president of Suntech. "Similar to China, India is faced with rampant air pollution due to increased industrial emissions. This poor air quality coupled with rapid urbanization negatively affects the livelihood and health of the country's citizens. The recently completed 9.3MW solar power plant will reduce approximately 11,000 tons of carbon emissions annually in the state of Gujarat."
Mr. Vneet S Jaain, CEO of Adani Power, the power subsidiary of the Adani Group, said, "Suntech's weather-resistant modules are perfectly suited for India's hot and humid climate, providing optimal daylight power generation. By equipping this project with quality technological components and smart engineering, we are confident that this solar plant will be a demonstrative example of solar energy's viability as a powerful natural energy source capable of powering India's burgeoning market. We are confident that the success of this plant will serve as a foundation for future collaboration with Suntech in the India market."
