German EPC specialist IBC Solar has signed a sixth EPC contract in India that will increase its PV portfolio in the solar-hungry nation to more than 50 MW.

The contract is for a 22.5 MW solar farm located near Phalodi in the state of Rajasthan. IBC Solar will commence construction in October, and expects to have the solar plant commissioned by April next year.

"With this project, IBC Solar India will reach an important milestone of installing more than 50 MW of solar capacity in India for third-party customers," said IBC Solar project private Ltd MD Shailendra Bebortha.

IBC Solar’s responsibilities will include technical supervision of the build site, full engineering services and all construction work. The firm is working with local contractor LN Bangur, which it has previously partnered with on several turnkey projects in Bhadla and Pokhran.
