Govt to help Surat textile cluster improve energy efficiency

Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with two Surat based textile fabric processing units for installing energy efficient equipments. EECL will install the programmable logic controller (PLC) at these two facilities as well at the caustic recovery plant at the nearby Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP).

Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) is a company operating under the union power ministry. The South Gujarat Textile Processors Association (SGTPA) will be suggesting the names of the fabric processors taking part in the initial trials.

"EESL will choose two model units for improving energy efficiency in their plants in Surat,” a leading daily quoted the chief general manager of EESL, S P Garnaik as saying at a workshop in Surat. “The main aim is to expand production and at the same time save energy.”

Once EESL achieves success with these trails, other fabric processors will be encouraged to join the project.

The project will be funded by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). (AR)
