Chandigarh, India-based EPC provider Hartek Power said on Feb. 26 that it has commissioned new substations required to connect 28 MW of solar power to the grid in Punjab, India.
Hartek said it connected two solar power projects — 24 MW and 4 MW — to the grid for a solar developer in the Muktsar district of Punjab. The projects are the first to connect to the grid in Punjab under Phase 2 of the state’s renewable energy policy, the company said.
“We have now set our eyes on the 500-MW solar projects recently awarded by the state government under the Phase 3 auction,” Hartek Group Chairman and Managing Director Hartek Singh said in a statement.
Hartek commissioned two 66/11 kV substations for the solar projects. The scope of work of the projects awarded in October included complete turnkey solutions and post-inverter works covering the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the power plants as well as electrification and installation of substations.
