Astonfield Renewable Resources says it has entered into a strategic partnership with Grupo T-Solar Global SA, a Spain-based solar power producer with installed generation capacity of 168 MW in Spain and Italy, in addition to a pipeline in Southern Europe, Latin America, and the U.S.
The partnership has been initiated with Astonfield's 5 MW solar PV project in Osiyan Rajasthan, India, which will be the first in a long-term strategic collaboration between Astonfield and T-Solar, according to the companies.
Astonfield will deploy T-Solar's latest-generation thin-film modules in the project, which is expected to be one of the first utility-scale solar power plants commissioned under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission. Completion is scheduled for October.
Construction on the project has begun. Once operational, the installation is expected to generate at least 8,500 MWh per year.
