India’s leading stock exchange National Stock Exchange of India Ltd installed a 6.25 MW wind power project at Satara in Maharashtra.
“65% of the energy consumption of NSE office located at Exchange Plaza building, Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) Mumbai will be met by this wind project,” a statement said.
The project was implemented by Suzlon Group, one of the leading wind turbine manufacturers.
The unit, omprising of 5 units of Suzlon’s robust S66, 1250 kW WTGs, will help in reducing ~12,730 tonnes CO2 emissions annually, it said.
“The investment in wind power project is part of our long term focus on sustainable development. We are committed to conduct business in a way that protects the environment by using green technology. Harnessing wind energy for our operations is a step in that direction. This is in addition to the various power saving and energy efficient measures being undertaken at the premises,” said Mahesh Haldipur, NSE spokesperson.
“The increased focus and investment in wind energy is a testament of efforts by corporates in India towards mitigating climate change and energy security,” said Ishwar Mangal, Chief Sales Officer, Suzlon Group. “NSE’s thrust on sustainable development and investments in wind energy will also encourage other corporates to harness wind energy for meeting their energy requirements and to hedge power cost for next 25 years thereby contribute towards a greener tomorrow. Suzlon’s ‘concept to commissioning’ approach offers convenience to customers for setting up wind project for captive use.”
Suzlon leveraged its end-to-end wind solutions expertise to oversee the project completion from start to end.
