Green Infra and its EPC partner Juwi India have commissioned 15 MWp solar Plants in December 2012, in Village Bap, Tehsil Phalodi, District Jodhpur, Rajasthan, thereby becoming the first in the country to commission Solar projects across 2 SPVs under JNNSM Phase I, Batch II.
Green Infra, the winner of Powerline’s Best Performing Renewable IPP in India award in 2012, and juwi India Renewable Energies Pvt. Ltd., a leading Indian turnkey EPC company, announced the commissioning of the plants at Phalodi in Rajasthan. Green Infra is executing a total of 25 MWp in Phalodi across two plants. These plants are built under EPC contracts signed by Green Infra Solar Projects Limited (5 MW) and Green Infra Solar Farms Limited (20 MW) with juwi India, for which they in turn have long-term PPAs with NVVN Limited.
The first plant under Green Infra Solar Projects has achieved full commissioning and the second under Green Infra Solar Farms has connected half of its rated capacity to the grid and commenced evacuation of power. The balance of the combined capacity is expected to be completed within a few weeks.
In a joint statement, Mr. Shiv Nimbargi, Managing Director and CEO, Green Infra and Mr. Rajeshwara Bhat, Managing Director, juwi India said, “These plants bear testimony to Green Infra and juwi’s continuous commitment to create new benchmarks in delivering solar electricity to the Indian grid at a competitive price, by leveraging Green Infra’s project development strength and juwi’s strong engineering and execution capabilities. India has become one of the most promising solar markets in the world today.
