ReNew Power, India’s largest renewable energy independent power producer, has announced a joint venture partnership with South Korea based GS E&C for execution of its 300 MW solar power plant in Rajasthan.

GS E&C is one of South Korea’s largest construction and development firms and part of the GS Group, with an asset base of over $58 billion. This investment will mark the entry of GS E&C in the Indian renewable energy sector.

ReNew Power’s chairman & MD Sumant Sinha said, “Both ReNew Power and GS E&C are not only leaders in their respective businesses, but also bring excellent project execution and management skills. I expect the partnership to set new benchmarks in the Indian renewable energy space and look forward to executing more projects together “

ReNew Power will hold a majority 51% equity under the partnership, while the balance will be held by GS E&C.

GS E&C and ReNew Power will continue to play an important role achieving the country’s ambitious target for the transition to cleaner energy” Huh Yun Hong, the president and head of new business division of GS E&C said.
