Hindustan Power, India’s largest Multinational Company in Renewable Energy, operating in the international markets is set to increase its footprint in international markets to 2GW by 2022.
The company during its decade long operations has executed over 800 MWp of solar power generation projects including international landmark projects like the 25MW solar power plant in Lauta, Germany, Asia’s first 30 MW solar in Gujarat, India; World’s largest greenhouse rooftop in Sardinia, Italy among many other projects in countries like Germany, Italy, Japan, UK and the US. Hindustan Power was also recognized as the largest solar developer in the United Kingdom in the years 2012 and 2013.
The company has recently acquired fifteen solar power generation projects in Japan and is poised to enter the emerging market of Bangladesh with 4 X 25 MWs solar projects at Trishal in Bangladesh.
Ratul Puri, Chairman, Hindustan Power said, “We are one of the early Indian player to focus on developing solar projects in the overseas markets. We have invested close to Rs 3000 crores and the target of 2 GW would entail an investment of Rs. 10,000 crores. We believe that our successful foray will encourage more players from India to expand its operations in the international markets thereby allowing India to emerge as a solar power house.”
Lalit Jain, CEO, International Solar, Hindustan Power said, “Hindustan Power has the distinction of developing solar plants in difficult markets and terrains within a short period of time. The 25 MW solar farm developed in Lauta, Germany was on a World War II impacted site that required special treatment and concreting before the commencement of the project. The greenhouse PV project in Sardinia covers more than 38 ha of land and produces finest quality of roses which are being exported to Europe and allowing the organization to become the member of prestigious Roya Flora Holland. This project has increased the potential of land by constructing the greenhouse solar plant as the temperature inside GH can be controlled leading to a higher productivity while the solar panels generate clean & green energy.’
He added, “The proposal to develop 4X25 MW solar project has been submitted to Government of Bangladesh and required land agreement has already been signed. We will take these projects in to construction in the next couple of quarters. While many of the players were formalizing its plans, we recorded the distinction of being the largest renewable energy player in UK way back 2012 & 2013.”
