The final phase of the solar project construction is “handover / takeover / acceptance” process which ensures formal closure of EPC works and successful transfer of plant to the owner. Developers and investors are sometimes provided with a huge quantum of documentation with a lot of ambiguities about operation and maintenance; as a result the handover process becomes challenging. Therefore, there is a need for experts to ensure the process runs smoothly and help developers in successfully implementing the project.
