Grundfos India reduces over 70 tons of CO2 annually

Grundfos is a global leader in advanced pump solutions with an annual production of more than 16 million pump units. Grundfos India’s headquarters had received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) EB Platinum Certification by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). Aspiration Energy installed a grid connected solar plant in this platinum rated building, that uses 216 solar photo voltaic panels (EMMVEE), each of 240 Wp capacity. Through this installation, Grundfos achieved another milestone in its sustainability drive by installing a 51.84 kW rooftop solar plant at its headquarters, which generates about 80,000 kWh of power annually.

Rooftop Solar System that can replace 20 to 25 tonnes of LPG per year

Harita Seating Systems Ltd is a leading manufacturer of automotive seating systems in India. The company uses liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for their heating requirements in their pre-treatment processes. Aspiration Energy designed and installed a 360kW online rooftop solar thermal system that provides required temperature to the process tanks. This system has the potential to replace 20 to 25 tonnes of LPG per year. The resultant savings is much more than the monthly rental paid by Harita to their financing institution, from whom they have leased the solar system.

210 kW capacity of solar thermal system for a steering system manufacturer

Sona Koya Steering Systems, the flagship company of The Sona Group, is the largest manufacturer of steering systems for the passenger car and utility vehicle market in India. They have installed solar water heater systems serviced by Aspiration Energy as the ESCO operator. This was one of their pioneering effort envisioned to replace diesel in their pressurized water heating systems. The solar system delivers 1260 KWh / day solar thermal energy, resulting in Diesel savings of 36,000 litres per year. Sona Koyo has also channeled hot water to their employees’ cafeteria.

Aspiration Energy replaces Furnace Oil with Solar at 40% lesser price for Wheels India Limited

Wheels India, one of the world’s largest wheel manufacturers for commercial vehicles, is profiting from one of the few solar ESCO projects in India. Aspiration Energy has been delivering heat from a 1,365 m² evacuated vacuum collector field for over two years now. The solar-heated water at 75 °C is used to degrease the wheels prior to final painting, a process which had been supplied by oil boilers before causing high energy costs. The solar thermal system provided by Aspiration Energy saves as much as Indian Rupee (INR) 8 million in fuel oil over the first 2 years in operation.
