New Delhi – Gulshan Polyols has announced it is to procure solar energy from Amplus RJ Solar to power its Muzaffarnaga-based site in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The power purchase agreement will reduce the company’s dependence on non-renewable sources of power.
A company statement read: “The contract is in line with Gulshan’s long-term vision to transit into using more sustainable and renewable sources of energy and to ‘Go Green’.”
Gulshan Polyols is expected to procure between 400,000 and 500,000 units of solar power per month at a cost subsidised by 30-40% as part of the newly announced contract. The agreement will enable Gulshan to control energy spend at a time when fossil fuel prices are soaring.
The Muzaffarnagar site is focused on grain processing and mineral processing.
Amplus RJ Solar – a subsidiary of Singapore-based company Amplus – has solar power plants across India.
Gulshan Polyols has a multi-locational presence with facilities in 35 countries, across three continents. Gulshan is a market leader in the production of sorbitol, precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) and wet ground calcium carbonate (WGCC).
