On 17th May 2021, Descon and Alectris announced a comprehensive end-to-end service partnership that covers the whole lifecycle of a PV project – design, construction and operation, offering an end-to-end service that addresses all the technical parameters for achieving maximum performance from solar plants. The project initiated by Descon Power Solutions and Alectris to boost renewable energy growth in Pakistan also provides full transparency through the use of digitalization and technology and aids foreign investors in entering local markets.
Pakistan is making efforts to reduce CO2 and renewable energy can help achieve this mission. It is estimated that the solar market deployment will be between 565MW to 1,120MW in 2021. By 2030, there will hopefully be a 26% increase in the generation of renewable energy.
Descon Power Solutions will provide solar operations and maintenance, asset management, check-up and diagnostic, engineering and improvement services. Commenting on the project, Syed Arfeen Khalid, CEO of Descon Power Solutions said, “It gives me great pleasure to announce the partnership of Descon Power Solutions (DPS) with the world renowned, Alectris. DPS is primarily an operations and maintenance service company, providing services to thermal, wind and bagasse-based power plants in Pakistan. With this addition of partnership with Alectris, DPS intends to further expand its wings to serve the solar power industry not only within Pakistan, but also in other countries of the world. DPS is confident to provide solar power plant owners with the attractive portfolio that Alectris so well offers. ACTIS ERP is of special significance and clearly differentiates Alectris from other service providers. My best wishes and good luck for the prosperity and success of this partnership in the years to come.”
The CEO of Alectris also shared his thought, “We are delighted to join forces with Descon Power Solutions in this crucially important market for solar energy. Descon is a highly respected global company and our partnership brings together our expertise in a highly dynamic collaboration that I’m sure will drive ever faster implementation of solar and renewable energy in Pakistan.”
This collaboration will open new avenues for the generation of renewable energy and help the country take another step towards sustainability.
