Earlier this year, Loesche Energy System Ltd, UK, created a subsidiary company and created a workshop in India. The new Loesche Energy Systems India Private Ltd (LESI) workshop has been founded at Chennai City in Tamilnadu State of India.
Chennai is a major manufacturing hub in the Southern region of India and having the second largest sea port of the country, the workshop’s location facilitates smooth international logistic options in addition to national accessibility via road and rail.
The new workshop was established owing to the strict pre-qualification requirements of the National Thermal Power Corporation (formally known as NTPC). NTPC is a government of India Enterprise and is the largest power producing company of India. In terms of preferred technology & OEMs, NTPC is also treated as the trendsetter for the Indian power Industry in the market.
The Indian power production is predominantly dependent upon coal-fired power plants, which results in the ordering of a larger number of new coal-fired power plants. With the new workshop, Loesche will be ready to serve the power industry best with Loesche coal mills and services to cover this demand in the future.
The workshop is planned to begin operation in June 2016.
