Textile giant launches solar photovoltaic (PV) farm

Published

on

Local manufacturing enterprises have been urged to invest in renewable energy as part of the objective to establish a carbon neutral industrial sector.

The call came from the Minister of Industrial Development, SMEs and Cooperatives, Mr Soomilduth Bholah, as he launched a solar photovoltaic (PV) farm at RT Knits Ltd in Pointe aux Sables.

The installation of the solar PV farm is described as another green initiative by RT Knits Ltd, one of the pioneers and leaders in textile and apparel manufacturing enterprises in Mauritius for some 52 years.

“This will enable the company to sharpen its competitive edge by making substantial savings on its electricity needs, and differentiate itself as a sustainable manufacturer in its endeavour to capture a higher proportion of the market for eco-label products,” said Mr Bholah.

RT Knits Ltd plans to expand its solar PV farm to generate 100% of its electrical energy needs in its drive to become carbon neutral by 2040.
