Solarpack’s second contract in countrySolarpack’s second contract in country

Solarpack has been selected, via its subsidiary Ekialde Solar Pvt Ltd, to develop five solar photovoltaic plants with a total power of 133 MWp in the Indian state of Karnataka.

The five new solar parks in India, located in the towns of Afzalpur, Chincholi, Holenarsipura, Nanjangund and Yelandur, will enter operation in September 2019. They are expected to generate around 215 GWh a year, avoiding 175,000 tons of atmospheric CO2 emissions. The project has a 25-year power-purchase agreement.
Solarpack already has six solar photovoltaic plants in India, generating a total of 104 MWp.

Pablo Burgos, Solarpack’s CEO, commented: “This second contract consolidates our position in India, a market which we see as key in the coming years. Solarpack has made an important commitment to internationalization and this process has seen us becoming a key player in the sector.”

As well as the projects in India, Solarpack has commissioned 37 MWp across seven locations in Spain, 67 MWp in seven solar plants in Chile, 62 MWp in another three plants in Peru and 26 MWp in a solar park in Uruguay.

Azure Power, one of India’s leading independent solar power producers, announced that it has won a 130 MW solar power project which was recently auctioned by Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited, rated A by ICRA, a Moody’s company. MSEDCL supplies electricity to 22 million consumers in Maharashtra and was declared as a load shedding free state in December 2012.
