Heidelberg Cement India has commissioned 5.5 Mega Watt (MW) Solar Power Plant in its mining area located in Damoh, Madhya Pradesh. The mining operations and clinker plant at Damoh have started receiving supply of electricity. The solar plant is expected to generate 10 Gigawatt hours per annum solar energy and the same will replace electricity purchased under short term open access and from grid.

The expected CO2 savings by generating solar energy would be 225,000 tonnes over the standard life of the plant. The commissioning of the Solar Plant is yet another milestone in reducing CO2 footprint.

Heidelberg Cement India is engaged in the manufacturing and selling of cement.
