Mahindra Susten has deployed its very first solar powered petrol pump for Indian Oil in Uttar Pradesh. The state-of-the-art solar PV solution has been executed keeping in mind the highest quality standards and has been installed at the S.V. Filling Station, Rajesultanpur, Ambedkar Nagar, Uttar Pradesh.
“Indian Oil Corporation completely supports the Government’s vision to achieve the 100 GW mark in solar installations and hence, our focus on converting our retail outlets to green facilities as far as possible. The solar installation at the S.V. Filling Station is not only a step in this direction but also helps reduce our dependence on conventional fossil fuel. It also results in lower operating charges and increases reliability of electricity supply at the pump. The long life span of solar plants and the fact that it does not require much maintenance, is an added advantage” said Ashish Gupta, Senior Divisional Retail Sales Manager, Indian Oil Corporation Ltd.
“We have great faith in Mahindra Susten who we selected to execute this project on the basis of their past track record and reputation, in addition to their proposal being extremely detailed and cost competitive. We are proud to have partnered with Mahindra Susten and are extremely pleased with the execution quality” said Vakil Ahmed, Owner, S.V. Filling Station.
“This solar powered petrol pump has been designed in accordance with the latest IS guidelines and standards and also takes into account the exact number of dispensers and their load consumption pattern. We would like to congratulate both Indian Oil and Mr. Ahmed for taking such a proactive step and hope others will follow suit,” said Sachin Singh, Regional Head – North, Mahindra Susten
