Statkraft BLP Solar Solutions, one of the leading customer-focused solar solution providers and independent power producers in India, inaugurated a 5 MWp solar park on 13th February 2018 for SRF’s manufacturing plant in Gummidipoondi, Tamil Nadu.
The project is one of the largest in-campus solar power projects in Tamil Nadu and will reduce electricity costs and CO2 emissions of SRF’s production plant for polymer-based technical textiles significantly: It is estimated to generate 7,500 MWh clean energy per year.
“We are proud to have set up one of the largest “in-campus” solar projects in Tamil Nadu that provides a high quality solar solution for SRF Limited. This will further enhance our position as a unique service provider in the solar sector, and is another step to contribute to reach India’s renewable energy targets by 2022”, says Tejpreet S. Chopra, CEO of Statkraft BLP Solar Solutions.
“SRF has always been at the forefront of adopting technologies that aim at delivering quality to the customer on a sustainable basis and simultaneously promote green manufacturing in our business. Climate change and rising energy demand intensify the need for greater usage of clean and green energy in order to ensure environmental protection. With the successful commissioning of the 5 MWp solar park we are making our operations both green and more sustainable," said Sanjay Chatrath, president and CEO Technical Textiles Business, SRF Limited.
“The solar park we built for SRF is a milestone project for us where innovative design helped overcome technical challenges that we faced in setting up such a large project within an operating factory. The project has accounted for more than 1 Lakh hours of employment without any safety violation incidents, which proves that we follow our world-class health and safety standards rigorously” adds Pratyush K. Thakur, COO of Statkraft BLP Solar Solutions.
Statkraft BLP Solar Solutions has previously commissioned several roof top and ground mounted projects, including a 5 MWp open access solar plant in Tumkur District, Karnataka.
