Riding the Wind Power
For once the Indian Railways is taking an environmentally friendly initiative. The Integral Coach Factory (ICF) in Chennai will be powered by Windmills. Suzlon Energy which has been awarded the project will be manufacturing 7 Windmills at the cost of Rs. 60 Cr. The most fertile paces for harvesting the wind energy have been short listed by Chennai based Ms C-WET.
The ICF annual electricity consumption is 25 million units and the Windmills project is estimated to yield 25.9 million units.
This project will help reduce the carbon emissions and will help fight the cause for global warming. The project should be operational by March 2009… Kudos to the Indian railways!
