The Waaree Group completed its 10 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) plant in Gujarat on March 21.
Waaree supplied 40,000 multi-crystalline silicon PV modules for the plant, which will use a seasonal tilt technology. The plant is being built under Gujarat State Solar Power Policy 2009.
“Waaree Energies has a modern state of the art and automatic production line for PV modules at the Surat Special Economic Zone (SEZ), located 250 km. north of Mumbai, “said Waaree Group Chairman Hitesh Doshi. “A full range of PV modules from 3Wp to 300Wp are manufactured for various on-grid and off-grid applications, and are exported to a number of countries globally, and in India. We offer comprehensive solar solutions all under one banner.”
The plant is located on a 24 hectare site in Una, Gujarat, and holds a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the state of Gujarat for the electricity which it will generate.
Waaree has also announced plans to increase its PV manufacturing capacity to more than 500 MW, in addition to its business developing PV plants.
