Tuesday, May 27, 2014: Welspun Energy Private Limited (WEPL) has been honoured with the Golden Peacock Innovative Service Award 2014. The award was presented by Sheila Dikshit, governor of Kerala. The award was presented for the innovations made by WEPL in Modified Module Mounting Structure, which is used for the installation of modules in solar power projects.
The award ceremony was held in Trivandrum, Kerala during the ’24th World Congress on Total Quality & Leadership’, in the presence of a gathering of business leaders, jurists, academics, environmentalists, economists, legislators and policy makers.
According to a press statement, Vineet Mittal, managing director WEPL said “It is a proud day for us at Welspun Energy. We have been challenging ourselves by reengineering each practice to come up with the most effective way of setting up solar power projects. We have made our mark in the Indian solar industry with our Engineering, Procurement & Commissioning (EPC) initiatives. The modified module mounting structure is a great example of ingenuity by streamlining the structure than the usual industry design. The Golden Peacock award recognizes this key quality of the organization and drives us to bring ingenuity in our functioning and file many more patents.”
Due to the innovations made, the project erection time gets reduced drastically with lower cost implications. Due to its design, the need for training or technological expertise required also reduces, leading to faster commissioning of solar projects. Welspun Energy has, so far, commissioned over 328 MW solar and wind capacities and over 723.5 MW capacity is under construction.
