City-based Hartek Power today said its solar grid EPC order size increased by 733 per cent to 1,025 MW in 2016-17, compared to 123 MW orders in the previous fiscal. The 1,025-MW solar grid EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) projects won by the company include 30 substation projects of up to 220 KV spread across 10 states, the company said in a statement here.
Hartek Power will provide complete turnkey solutions for these projects and execute post-inverter works covering the design, engineering, supply, installation, automation and commissioning of the power plant electrification, it said. “Aggressively capitalising on India’s solar overdrive, we have prevailed over many big players to bag these orders. Given favourable market scenario, proactive approach of the government is pushing solar power and our unmatched expertise in connecting solar projects to the grid, we have surpassed the 500-MW target quite smoothly,” said Hartek Power CMD Hartek Singh.

“While tapping business opportunities in the three southern states, where 3-GW tenders are under execution, we are also expanding our operations to new geographies like Jharkhand, which closed the bids for 1.2-GW projects in 2016-17.
