SafEarth Clean Technologies commissioned a project for a Foundry in Karnataka, with the size of 26 MW. They are one of the largest foundry groups in the world. Their global service operations serve global industry leaders such as Cummins, Tata Cummins, Mahindra, Caterpillar, Liebherr, Perkins, Atlas Copco etc.

Over the last few years, the company has been actively looking for solar as a possible solution. This is where SafEarth came in and helped make their dream become a reality. The Ground Mounted OPEN ACCESS Solar installation of 26 MW has helped Foundry in Karnataka reduce 57439 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year.

Project Workflow

SafEarth is proud to be a part of this journey. This is how we helped their transformation:

Project Design: 

Upon signing with the Foundry in Karnataka, SafEarth first visited the site and made a detailed project report for the project. The designed system optimized the generation and the return on investment of the plant. Best industry practices have been used in this system.

Vendor Selection: 

The SafEarth team then selected 15 pre screened vendors from the companies registered on our portal. All these companies are industry leaders. These companies were given a week to review the Detailed Project Report to help them ascertain their costs up to 99% accuracy. After that they selected a vendor from the 15 participating pre screened vendors and held final discussions with this vendor. We worked with them to iron out various terms and conditions of the contract to arrive at a Win-Win scenario. This ensured protections for the client as well as the vendor.


The Vendor installed the plant by following the best in industry practices. The plant has been set up using premium components and has been designed for top-grade performance.

Quality Assurance by SafEarth:

Before Commissioning and Handing over the plant, the project goes through multiple quality checks i.e., at the initial phase of the project, during installation and before commissioning. The SafEarth quality team visited the site and identified any punch points. The plant was handed over only after resolving these punch points.

Operations and Maintenance:

The O&M for the plant is now being done by the Vendor. The contract sets out clear benchmarks against which the output of the plant will be evaluated. 

Final Outcome of Project

SafEarth has helped the Foundry in Karnataka reduce its carbon footprint by 57439 tonnes per year of CO2 equivalent and save over 40% of their electricity bills in the process. The Company was able to get the best quality solar plant without having to worry about any aspect of the project and as a result, they have awarded additional projects to SafEarth.
