India-based Sterling and Wilson Pvt. Ltd. has established its U.S. subsidiary, Sterling and Wilson Solar Solutions Inc. (SWSS), in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The wholly owned U.S. subsidiary will mirror its parent company’s global service offerings for solar and energy storage. This includes project development support; design and engineering; supply chain management; construction; commissioning; and operations and maintenance for utility-scale project developers, independent power producers and utility customers.
According to the company, the U.S. market expansion follows recent recognition from IHS Markit for being the world’s largest solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor outside of China.
The newly formed subsidiary has already made a quick entry into the U.S. market with over 50 MWp of turnkey solar projects under contract for EPC and/or co-cevelopment services.
“The U.S. is an important long-term market for Sterling and Wilson, and we firmly believe that the energy industry will continue shifting towards renewables, particularly solar and storage,” says Bikesh Ogra, the group’s CEO for solar. “Sterling and Wilson looks forward to bringing its global reputation of safely delivering high-quality projects, and we are very pleased with the U.S. team’s rapid success.”
R.T. Weber, vice president of business development in the U.S., adds, “Pairing up our team’s relationships and local knowledge with our global EPC resources and expertise, we can offer customers high-quality solar and storage facilities at the competitive prices needed in the U.S. market. The financial strength of Sterling and Wilson and its global footprint also allow us to invest in projects at various development stages and support developers to bring their projects to the finish line.”
