Utility-scale PV project developer SkyPower has signed EPC and O&M contracts with Sterling and Wilson for its recently awarded 350MW PV projects in India.
Sterling and Wilson is an India-based EPC contractor that has installed nearly 1GW of solar energy projects domestically in its mother country. The company also offers EPC services to PV projects in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and has already commissioned nearly 150MW in solar farms across Africa and Southeast Asia.
The 350MW of PV projects awarded by SkyPower are composed by seven projects, each of 50MW. 150MW of the projects are located in Madhya Pradesh and 200MW of them are located in Telangana. The constructions are scheduled to be completed in later 2016 before being officially commissioned.
Said Sri Manu Shrivastava, Principal Secretary, New and Renewable Energy Department, Government of Madhya Pradesh: "MP Government and MPNRED would extend all cooperation for timely execution of SkyPower projects in the state. We are extremely happy to learn of progress on the project. Almost 1,500 MW of projects have been installed in the state in 2015-16, and execution of SkyPower projects would further supplement the achievements of Madhya Pradesh in the field of renewable energy."
The India government targets to install 100GW of solar by 2022.
