Plant would generate 3.1 Cr units of Green Power and enable an offset of 28000 Tons of CO2

INOX Air Products (INOXAP), India’s largest manufacturer of industrial and medical gases, has commissioned a 21.3 MWp Open Access captive Solar Power Plant at Bangarmau in Unnao, Uttar Pradesh. INOXAP’s first dedicated Solar Power Plant is also the largest investment made by the Company in renewable energy. The plant has been commissioned by one of India’s leading solar energy power developers, Sunsure Energy.

Built with an investment of 100 Cr, this solar power plant will be supplying over 3.1 Crore units of green power to INOXAP’s units in Uttar Pradesh, enabling an offset of 28,000 tonnes of CO2 every year, for the next 25 years. Taking inspiration from the UNSDGs, INOXAP has assigned topmost priority to sustainable and environment-friendly operations, and has been making giant strides towards reducing its dependence on fossil fuels in order to lower its carbon footprint.

Commenting on the commissioning of the plant, Siddharth Jain, Managing Director – INOX Air Products said, “With the commissioning of our first Open Access captive Solar Power Plant in India, we have taken a giant step towards our Net Zero goals. While we are expanding our footprint to augment the rapid growth in the manufacturing sector, we are also ensuring that we perform our duties in a completely sustainable and responsible manner, by manufacturing with Green fuels, and thereby supplying Green Oxygen & Industrial Gases. With the commissioning of this plant, we will offset a significant amount of carbon emission, and contribute towards a cleaner and greener future. We extend our sincere gratitude to Sunsure Energy for their strong execution capabilities and partnership in achieving our sustainability goals.”

The project was completed within a record time of 9 months, showcasing INOXAP’s robust and strategic intent to enhance dependence on renewable fuels. The Company aims to increase the share of Green Oxygen in its overall Oxygen production, by increasing the use of renewable energy across its ASUs in India.
