PR Fonroche, an equal joint venture of PR Clean Energy (India) and the French company Fonroche, is working towards putting up 200 MW of solar photo-voltaic plants in India, the joint venture’s Joint Managing Director Pratap Raju told Business Line.
PR Fonroche formally inaugurated its 5 MW solar plant at Gajner near Bikaner (Rajasthan), which is a part of a 20 MW project that the company won through a competitive bidding process of the National Solar Mission, Phase I Batch II. This is the first (of the 340 MW) of the projects that are being put up under the Mission’s Phase I Batch II. The other 15 MW plant has also started producing electricity but will be formally commissioned on the 15th of this month, Raju said.
Mahindra EPC Services Pvt Ltd, part of the Mahindra & Mahindra group, was the ‘engineering, procurement, construction’ contractor for the project.
