It has been based on these pillars of in-house strong design and engineering, optimum vendor selection and also operating on GW scale which we believe has been the secret of the magic potion that kind of has brought us to this stage.
There has been work that has been ongoing for the last three to four years and has been culminated in this present awards.” Ravi Damaraju also shared a glimpse of the journey where they started as a predominantly solar platform.
