We live in a world where fossil fuels continue to deplete the world’s limited natural resources. The impact of these fossil fuels have scaled to irreversible levels with the emission of greenhouse gases and endangering pollutants into the atmosphere. The need for renewable energy sources has never been more urgent. At Kirloskar, our guiding principle to power the limitless, emboldens us to innovate and engineer sustainable solutions for a cleaner, greener world. With our strengthened resolve and profound vision, we marked our presence in the Wind Energy Generation sector.
For us, it all began with a humble iron plough. India’s first iron plough, engineered by us, would go on to not only become an instrument of wealth for the entire nation but also kick-start the industrial revolution. The plough was the first of many of our engineering innovations. The firsts that followed include India’s first centrifugal pump, first diesel engine, first lathe and so on. Our journey, spanning over a century, has been defined by identifying the needs of our customers, industries and the nation at large. Sometimes, even before they do.
Today, as the world seeks alternate solutions to the looming climate crisis, we have stepped up our efforts in engineering solutions for wind generation. Two decades ago, when Wind Energy Generation was at its nascent stage in India, we set out with a single-minded focus on being carbon neutral with green energy.
