Explain us about Anchor’s entry in the solar EPC division?EPC is a value added service and it requires thorough understanding of the technology, engineering and project execution capabilities. Anchor has launched a highly experienced EPC team in order to provide high quality products and engineering services clubbed with our project management capabilities. This is like a one stop shop for our customers where the entire project needs will be catered. Anchor being a module manufacturer, the quality control, and cost leadership benefits our clients mainly.
What are your plans for the newly operated solar EPC vertical?Our plans are to establish high quality performance projects with our HIT and Poly modules. We wish to make a difference in the Indian market, which is currently cost-driven. There is no focus on the quality of engineering, products as well as reliability. We at Anchor aim at creating a distinction with our EPC offering.  Our focus is to offer best in class solutions to the energy hungry industrial customers, along with captive power projects.
Describe about the major projects you would be working on initially?We have already commissioned few small roof top projects on EPC basis last year. The performance of those projects was very encouraging. This year, we have already embarked executing large roof top projects for few key corporate clients. We are now extending our focus towards specific utility projects and targeting commissioning of ground mounted projects also.
Highlight the core strength of your EPC domain, what makes you different from other players in the solar EPC segment?Our EPC team comprises of a talent pool with more than 18 to 20 years of solar industry experience and understanding of cell technology, module technology as well as inverter technology. Our EPC team involves experienced professionals having worked with large solar companies like Tata, BP, Reliance and AEG Power. This vast experience and technology expertise makes a huge difference in our project execution and selection of equipments.  What are your future plans for your business?We want to create a robust base and establish this business in India and move slowly towards the global market.  The gigantic sales network of our parent Panasonic in all the continents would aid us to offer an enhanced experience to our clients. With our sales channel, being close to the end client and a great brand value will help Anchor by Panasonic to reach to a larger market base and expand rapidly.
