MicroSun Solar, a solar module manufacturing company, has announced it has resumed operations from May 4 onwards, after the Ministry of Home Affairs issued new guidelines permitting certain industrial activities in the third extension of Covid lockdown.
The company has its own state-of-the-art facility with module manufacturing capacity of 150 MW per annum in Bengaluru. Given the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown announced by the government, it had closed the operation of its units at Bengaluru and warehouses across India from March 24.
The company said it’s running manufacturing operations in compliance with all the safety guidelines and directives issued by the central and state governments, and local administration to safeguard the employees, labourers, and all other stakeholders to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
“It is crucial to adapt to the present-day need while the government is working towards restoring the supply chain. Starting the production with new stringent guidelines from the Ministry of Home Affairs is a basic step to provide safe working environment to our employees and prepare for the requisites of full-scale production in the near future”—read a company statement.
“Comprehensive protocols have been put in place to ensure full compliance of the safety and social distancing norms. The wearing of masks is mandatory for everyone, body temperature of every individual is monitored twice a day and anyone showing signs of sickness is prohibited from entering the manufacturing facility.”
In addition to modules, MicroSun offers a wide range of products and services such as solar water pumping systems, solar rooftop grid-tie systems, solar rooftop off-grid systems, customised power packs, megawatt projects, solar street/home lighting systems and solar inverters.
