Meeco India Private Limited, the Indian subsidiary of Switzerland’s meeco Group, and Elcomponics Technologies India Private Limited have teamed up to customize, manufacture and market meeco’s sun2safe high-efficiency solar energy power conditioning and management system.
The sun2safe technology has delivered a strong performance in the telecom sector as well as in the off and weak grid fields, according to meeco.
Noting that the new venture would be one of the first high-efficiency large-scale solar power conditioning units to be manufactured in India, Elcomponics managing director S.N.Dwivedi said the companies had "set up a world class infrastructure where our R&D team will enhance the features and optimize the product for grid variations."
Explaining the partnership, meeco sales director Dieter Trutschler said, "We are expanding rapidly in the Asia Pacific region and Africa. To support this expansion, we have created a regional hub and center of excellence in India. In Elcomponics we have found a partner where Quality is in the ethos of everything they do and we see this very much as a strategic relationship which will bring many value added products for us."
Elcomponics is expected to roll out the first sets of units in June.
Tarun Munjal, manging director of meeco India, added: "We have prepared ourselves to address the scope and size of the market which we are addressing, including telecom BTS power, street lighting, off grid, rural and hybrid power backup solutions with large and seamless clean power requirement. We have a backlog of pre-orders and are experiencing a huge demand in these segments."
