ABB in India and Welspun Energy, have together installed about 700MW of solar photovoltaic projects across several states in India like Punjab, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. This includes a key project of 52MW for Maharashtra State Generation Company at Baramati, which was the first ever PPP (public-private partnership) project in the industry, in the country.
“By setting up large scale solar capacities across the country we are supporting India’s developmental needs through clean energy. This is essential if we want to power our industries sustainably and meet our renewable energy targets. We chose ABB as a bankable partner owing to its leadership in inverter technology, strong local presence and a robust service network which has helped us to synchronize our plants in a very short time, whilst meeting our robust quality standards,” said Vineet Mittal, Managing Director, Welspun Energy. “ABB offers quality, reliability, efficiency and a well entrenched network, all of which are critical to minimizing the long-term risks of solar installations.”
“We look forward to a continuing collaboration with forward looking customers such as Welspun Energy, who are the pioneers in the clean energy space in the country. We are privileged to be associated with this key customer,” said Sanjeev Sharma, Managing Director, ABB in India. “India and solar power are core focus areas in ABB’s globa next level strategy. Our expertise and attention to developing local engineering competence positions us well to partner India through Welspun Energy in its growth ambitions. We look forward to contributing to initiatives such as Make in India, power to all and 100 GW of solar power by 2022.”
