The juwi group announced that it has completed construction of a 135MW DC utility-scale solar power plant for Energon Soleq Ravi India Power Resources Pvt Ltd. The plant covers an area of 243 hectares and is situated near the village of Guttigoli (Belgaum district) in the southern part of Karnataka, India. It is expected to generate more than 226 million kilowatt-hours of electricity each year, enough to avoid the emission of 122,743 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
"Utility scale solar PV has become the most cost-effective source of energy in many parts of the world. The juwi group is globally very well positioned and one of the top renewable energy project developer and EPC service providers. The high quality construction of the 135 megawatt solar project emphasizes our striving for operational excellence in EPC", juwi-COO Stephan Hansen commented. Within the juwi group Hansen is responsible for the company's international business.
"We are expecting financial close for these projects by the end of July. We also signed the contract with our client for the sale of our self-developed 138-Megawatt wind-farm Garob in the Northern Cape. We are expecting financial close for this project by the end of August", Hansen says.
