Titagarh to replace 25 pc of power demand with clean energy

India’s largest private sector manufacturer of passenger and freight trains Titagarh Wagons Ltd on Thursday announced the signing of a power purchase agreement with Fourth Partner Energy to procure 4.8 megawatts of solar power for its wagon and steel foundries at Titagarh and passenger coach and propulsion unit at Uttarpara.

This will effectively replace about 25 per cent of its current annual electricity demand with clean energy. All three power plants are expected to be commissioned by January 2021.

Vice President at Titagarh Prithish Chowdhary said reducing carbon emissions and switching to green energy is no longer an option but a global imperative.
