16th Jun 14, Mumbai
India's leading solar energy solutions company Waaree Energies Limited has received an order to install a 15,000 litres per day solar thermal system for a customer in the beautiful Girnar mountain range of Girnar in Gujarat.
To be installed at the Devchand Dharmashala, the system will help reduce pollution caused by other fossil fuels in Gir area, that is also a home to the largest lion population in the country. The solar thermal system will be based on BIS approved flat plate collector to achieve temperatures of 60° C.
Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Nikunj Shukla, SBU Head of Solar Thermal Division at Waaree, said, "This will be our third installation at Junagadh for Waaree Energies. This system will reduce a lot of air pollution which is caused due to burning of diesel, firewood and coal. Ours is a proven technology with a pay-back period of less than 3 years. This ensures repeat business for us."
Girnar, the mountain and its range are considered sacred and it's an important pilgrimage site for both Jains and Hindus, who gather here during the Girnar Parikrama festival. There are five important jain temples and few other hindu temples, which attract thousands of devotees every year. A lot of these pilgrims stay at dharamshalas on the foot hills of Mt Girnar.
