KEC International is looking to tap the robust pipeline of solar projects in the country, a top official of the company said here. One of the largest manufacturers of electric power transmission towers and EPC companies, KEC is also making module mounting structures for solar plants.
“The Rajasthan government has signed MoUs for 26000 MW solar power in state. Solar power is a focus area for the Centre also. Keeping in mind the policy thrust and increased demand that is expected to come in the next couple of years, we are expanding the capacity of module mounting structure,” said Rajesh Koolwal, vice-president, manufacturing, KEC International.
The company, which has a manufacturing unit in Jaipur, on Friday opened a vision centre here as part of its social outreach programme. The government is planning to add 1 lakh Mw of solar power generation capacity over the next six years through 2022.
