Schwing Stetter installs 1MW solar power system at its manufacturing hub
Schwing Stetter India, one of the country’s leading construction and concreting equipment manufacturers, has recently installed a 1MW solar power system in their Global manufacturing hub in Cheyyar. The facility was inaugurated by VG Sakthikumar, Chairman & Managing Director of Schwing Stetter India.

Through this mode of energy production, the company aims to make the facility carbon neutral shortly- as the facility can generate 14 lakh kWh of electricity and fulfills 20% of its total annual power needs. With Schwing's global manufacturing hub having an enormous potential to manufacture 14,000 machines annually, this endeavour reflects Schwing’s commitment to sustainability. This initiative is also contributing to the Ministry of New and renewable energy plan of doubling the annual solar capacity by the end of 2026.

Commenting on Schwing’s commitment towards sustainability and energy conservation measures, VG Sakthikumar, Chairman & Managing Director of Schwing Stetter India, “Our operations are fuelled by a sense of obligation towards the environment and the government’s green energy goals. Schwing has reaffirmed its dedication to sustainability with green initiatives by building a renewable energy infrastructure onsite and by committing to further expand their reliance on green energy to power their operations. Our initiatives are majorly focused on carbon neutrality, energy transition, circularity, and eco-friendly operations.”

Last year, to celebrate Schwing’s 25th anniversary and to promote carbon neutrality, the company planted 2,50,000 saplings across the country.
