PVTIME – TotalEnergies ENEOS and Yanmar Engine Manufacturing India Pvt Ltd (YEMI), a leading Japanese engine manufacturer, announced the completion of a 1 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) system. This system will power about 30% of its industrial engine production facility with green power in India.

With over 2,200 of modules installed, the PV system generates approximately 1,500 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable electricity annually, realises significant cost savings for YEMI and reduces the company’s carbon footprint by about 1,200 tons of CO2 emissions, equivalent to powering approximately 200 average households annually.
Under the agreement, TotalEnergies ENEOS finances, installs and operates the PV solar system while YEMI does not incur any upfront costs and pays only for the electricity generated.
Varun Khanna, Managing Director YEMI said, “The installation of this solar photovoltaic generation system underscores Yanmar’s longstanding commitment to sustainable operations. With this investment, we continue Yanmar’s goal to realise a sustainable future with access to powerful, highly efficient, and affordable engine technologies as well as implementing systems that can make optimal use of diverse energy sources to reduce the burden on the environment.”
Gavin Adda, Director of TotalEnergies ENEOS Renewables Distributed Generation Asia said, “TotalEnergies ENEOS takes pride in providing the best solutions to its customers. We are pleased to partner with Yanmar to provide a solution that fulfils both its environmental sustainability and cost-saving goals.”
