The company achieved power savings through energy efficient air compressors, unity power factor, reduction in specific consumption in humidification plant, energy efficient boilers and power savings in lights using LEDs and magnetic amplifiers. Modifications were done in pumps and motors for optimum and high efficiency running along with utilization of day light in the plant.

The Ministry of Power awards companies from different industry groups for creating benchmarks in energy conservation. These include industrial units, buildings, hotels, railway zones, state designated agencies, manufacturers of Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) star labelled appliances/equipment.
