Total income of the company stood at Rs 1,265.64 crore in the quarter under review, compared to Rs 2,540.29 crore earlier.

Currently, the Company has an order book of about Rs 12480 crore (previous comparable period approx. Rs 4500 crore)," said Bikesh Ogra, Director and Global CEO, Sterling and Wilson Solar Ltd.

"The company recently bagged orders in strategic markets like Australia and the US, that have conducive solar power policies coupled with high solar resources. The company will continue to make strong progress on its focused growth areas of Renewable Generation which includes Rooftop Solar and Floating Solar, along with strengthening its O&M portfolio, which is growing exponentially," he added.

The company has over 8.88 GWp of solar EPC projects as part of its portfolio in different stages of implementation (commissioned and under-construction).
