At the beginning of this year, Loesche Energy System Ltd, UK created a subsidiary company and founded a workshop in India. The new Loesche Energy Systems India Private Ltd. (LESI) workshop was founded at Chennai City in the Tamil Nadu State in India. Due to its strategic location Chennai is a major manufacturing hub in the southern region of India. Having the second largest sea port of the country, the 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 (Original Equipment Manufacturer) NTPC is also treated as the trendsetter for the Indian power Industry in the market.
The Indian power production is predominantly dependent upon coal-based power plants which results in the ordering of a larger number of new coal-based 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 LESI business partner Doosan Power Systems India (DPSI) is pleased to have the new workshop very close to their offices.
Operation of the workshop is planned to be started in June 2016.
