One of the world’s leading elevator companies, thyssenkrupp Elevator, has collaborated with Amplus Solar to set up an onsite solar power unit at their Pune facility. thyssenkrupp Elevator (India) has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Amplus to procure 820 kWp of solar power for 20 years.
The Gurugram-headquartered Amplus recently commissioned the 820 kWp solar power plant at the facility, which includes 755 kWp of rooftop solar and a 65 kWp carport. The carport is unique in its construction, made up entirely of low weight, high strength aluminium and has a premium design to match the aesthetic requirements of thyssenkrupp Elevator.
Through this initiative, thyssenkrupp will generate 1,067 MWh of green energy in a year, equivalent to reducing 774 MT of carbon emissions annually.
“This initiative reaffirms our commitment to energy and environmental conservation,” said Manish Mehan, CEO & Managing Director for thyssenkrupp Elevator (India). Talking about the experience of working with Amplus, on their solar plant, Mehan stated, “The entire team of Amplus had been very proficient and organised at their work. They did a commendable job within the stipulated time.”
‘’We are happy to be part of thyssenkrupp’s green journey in India. Their decision to partner with Amplus reinforces our position as the best suited low carbon solutions provider for industrial customers,” said Sanjeev Aggarwal, CEO & Managing Director, Amplus Solar.
The solar plant was inaugurated at thyssenkrupp Elevator’s multi-purpose facility at Chakan, Pune on September 1, in the presence of Mehan and the Amplus Team. The project execution was especially challenging given the prevailing COVID-19 situation and restrictions, especially in Maharashtra.
