The India arm of global flexible packaging manufacturer Huhtamaki has installed about 750 kWp of rooftop solar capacity across four of its facilities in India.
Renewable energy is one of the key elements of Huhtamaki’s 2030 sustainability ambitions. Huhtamaki India chose Amplus Solar to solarize its factories across Guwahati, Daman, Silvassa, and Taloja, moving a step further towards that aim.
The plants use polycrystalline rooftop solar panels. The use of solar power generated from the plants will help the company offset CO2 emissions by approximately 750 MT per annum. This is equivalent to planting nearly 50,000 trees.
All installations are equipped with high-end safety systems and online performance monitoring.
Speaking on the use of rooftop solar panels, Sunil Bhagwat, Head of Operations, Huhtamaki India, said, “Huhtamaki has clear sustainability ambitions, including harnessing renewable energy. The installation of solar panels is a visible demonstration of the way we are embedding sustainability in all what we do within our operations.”
