Spanish wind power-focused firm Gamesa has secured a contract to develop a 20MW solar plant in Sri Lanka from local industrial conglomerate Laugfs Power.
Gamesa will manufacture and supply PV inverters as well as performing engineering and design for the project located in the province of Hambantota, in south Sri Lanka.
The installation is expected to be complete by October this year.
Gamesaâ€™s expansion into the solar sector aligns with its goal to explore opportunities in businesses that complement the wind industry. Currently, it has 60 MW of PV under construction in India, 12 MW of which is in the state of Tamil Nadu.
