The Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) Factory is benefiting from the installation of GE’s (NYSE: GE) combined heat and power solutions as it enhances its local energy security.
Jenbacher natural gas CHP units replaced the Manesar plant’s previous diesel generators.
The Jenbacher cogeneration units use less expensive natural gas to generate 4 MW of reliable on-site power.
HMSI installed the Jenbacher units to lower energy costs at the flagship Manesar factory as the company prepares to dramatically expand production in India.
“We installed our GE cogeneration units to reduce our Manesar factory’s energy costs and ensure we have a more cost-effective and secure supply of power and heat to help meet our production requirements,” said HMSI Manesar Plant Head Vinay Dhingra.
“GE’s technology has the proven record of efficiency, reliability and availability to help us achieve our growth strategy of becoming the largest two-wheeler manufacturer in India by 2020.”
Clarke Energy India Private Limited, GE’s authorized Jenbacher gas engine distributor in India, supplied the CHP units to HMSI.
