India’s largest photovoltaic (PV) solar energy plant

The project awarded under the Gujarat Solar Power policy of 2009 was commissioned in record time and is the country’s largest solar power plant with over 400,000 solar PV modules installed. — The project is the first large scale solar project completed by a Spanish company in India and positions Aries as the standard of international efficiency in renewable energy projects.

Spanish company, Aries Ingenieria y Sistemas, has completed work on India’s largest solar power plant, a 40 MW solar PV plant in the Kutch district, (Gujarat) which was commissioned in early January 2012.

Aries completed the design, engineering, construction supervision and commissioning services for the plant which is owned and operated by the Adani Group.

The innovative solar policies in India have created a favorable regulatory framework for investing in clean energies and the completion of this project marks a milestone for Aries in India, seeing as this will be the regions first large-scale solar project completely designed by a Spanish company.

We have been active in India for three years now and have executed several projects for key customers in this time. We will continue to invest heavily in the region as it is a key part of our aggressive international growth strategy."

Aries continues to be active in other key solar markets with ongoing projects in Spain, USA, China, South East Asia and the Middle East.
