As Panchabuta has earlier reported, there have been international reports that have started saying that “India the top target for being the new Germany for Solar“.
There have also been discussions about German firms coming up empty-handed in India in 2010 and Panchabuta has analyzed this in detail in an earlier essay.
In spite of this there have been numerous announcements including that of Harsha Engineers that recently entered into a JV with German firm Abakus Solar with plans to be EPC contractor/Systems integrator for Solar PV.
Recently, the meeco Group through meeco India Private Limited, will expand its offers of clean energy turnkey solutions, clean advisory services and cellcubeTM storage solutions, to this growing Indian solar market and will build up to 50 MWp solar parks in the next three years.
“meeco India will deliver projects at the highest international standards banking on the experience of the meeco Group’s global team which has implemented more than 200 MWp of PV solar projects just in Europe”, says Managing Director Tarun Munjal.
The Directors team of meeco India consists of national as well as international personalities. This is also an important factor for the success of The meeco Group: international expertise and local experience, said the company.
It seems like this strategy is paying off, as meeco seems in line to complete two solar power projects this year. In an exclusive interview to the PV Magazine, Dieter Trutschler, member of the Executive Board of meeco AG says that meeco has joined forces with an unnamed partner in order to complete two projects this year. The first, expected to be built by this July, is a ground-mounted project, the size of which was not disclosed, while a term sheet for the second project – a five MW PV facility – has been signed. It is expected to be finished by this October.
