Kohinoor Textile Mills
Power accounts for more than 10% of cost of textile manufacturing. Also, increasing energy tariffs, grid reliability issues and outages further increase the cost of production and affects export competitiveness. Kohinoor Textile Mills Limited (KTML), Pakistan’s largest vertically integrated textile company, partnered with Reon for a 1 MW Project in 2017 at KTML, Rawalpindi. The pilot’s success in cost and carbon footprint reduction led to 5 successive projects: 5 MW in Rawalpindi, 6.1 MW in Gujjar Khan and 303 KW in Lahore; totaling to a gigantic11.4 MW.
The plants generate an approximate 17.7 GHW of energy annually and offset carbon by 10,500 Tonnes. KTML’s captive Solar Plant is creating roughly 30% savings in energy.
