Hartek Power Pvt Ltd, one of India’s fastest growing Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) companies based in Chandigarh with expertise in executing high-voltage turnkey substations and power infrastructure projects, has successfully connected a 50-MW solar project to the grid in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh.
The scope of work of the 132/11 KV substation project, which happens to be Hartek Power’s first one in the state and its biggest in South India, involved complete turnkey solutions and post-inverter works covering the design, engineering, installation and commissioning of the power plant electrification and automation systems as well as pooling stations.
With the completion of this project, followed by the execution of a substation with an evacuation of 66 KV for a 10-MW solar project in Chitradurg district of Karnataka, Hartek Power is all set to wrap up the 113-MW order awarded to it by a leading developer in October for solar grid connectivity projects spread across five states, including Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Punjab and Bihar.
Hailing the achievement, Hartek Group Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) Hartek Singh said, “Having achieved the target of connecting 250-MW solar projects to the grid by the end of financial year 2015-16, we have now set out on a mission of executing substations for another 250-MW solar projects by the end of the current financial year. We uphold high quality standards and create immense value for our clients in terms of services and timely execution. That explains our growth as one of the fastest growing EPC companies in India.”
Hartek Power is eyeing new opportunities in South India with the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana governments proactive on the solar front and other southern states also following suit. While Andhra Pradesh came out with a 1,000-MW tender for a solar park in September, followed by another 1,000-MW tender in Kadapa district recently, Telangana had also floated a 2,000-MW tender last year. “Targeting some key developers who have been allotted projects under these tenders, we will shortly open an office in Hyderabad to tap the South Indian market,” said Hartek Singh.
