Descon Power Solutions and Alectris announce new partnership to drive renewable energy growth in Pakistan

Descon Power Solutions and Alectris announced today a new and comprehensive end-to-end service partnership, developed to meet the needs of the Pakistani market. The two companies have developed a proposition 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. By utilizing digitalization and technology, it also provides full transparency thus lowering the barriers to entry for foreign investors.

Renewable energy is set to be the main source to fulfill Pakistan’s commitment to CO2 reduction. The country expects to boost its share of total renewable generation from 4% to 30% by 2030. It is estimated that the solar market deployment will be between 565MW to 1,120MW in 2021.

Powered by ACTIS ERP, Alectris’s proprietary solar asset management and monitoring platform, Descon Power Solutions will provide a full-service approach to solar asset protection, including but not limited to, solar operations and maintenance, asset management, check-up and diagnostic, engineering and improvement services.

Vassilis Papaeconomou, CEO of Alectris commented: “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”.

DPS is primarily an operations and maintenance service company, providing services to thermal, wind and bagasse-based power plants in Pakistan.
