Mainstream Renewable Power has got a new head for its Asia Pacific business. Raghuram Natarajan has joined the Irish renewable energy company as its CEO for the region and he will be based out of its new regional headquarters in Singapore.
Natarajan joins Mainstream from Germany’s juwi where he worked as the APAC CEO as well. At juwi, he was responsible for delivering 1.2 GW of solar and wind power projects and overseeing a portfolio of more than 1 GW under long-term asset management.
“We are delighted to welcome Ram on board; with his solid track record delivering solar and wind assets across the APAC region, he is the ideal person to spearhead our ambitious expansion plans and lead our rapidly growing regional team,” said Mainstream Group Chief Executive Andy Kinsella, adding that the company is evaluating a number of exciting opportunities across a range of new markets in the APAC region.
Mainstream said this development comes ahead of its significant expansion plans for the region where it is currently developing the 800 MW Phu Cuong Soc Trang offshore wind power farm in Vietnam. In June 2019, Mainstream signed a framework agreement with the Vietnamese Department of Industry and Trade of Dak Lak province to facilitate the development of wind and solar power projects in the province. It is also active in the wind power space in the Philippines and also has development offices in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Manila and Melbourne.
Recently, Mainstream secured environmental approval for 123 MW solar power plant in Chile (see 123 MW Chile PV Plant Secures Enviro Approval).
