With this installation, L&T Shipbuilding Ltd will be able to draw a significant amount of green power for the administration building and therefore fulfil one of the key requirements for securing the platinum rating for a green building.

Ezhilvendhan, senior DGM, L&T Shipbuilding Ltd, said, “The energy situation in Tamil Nadu is grim and we need to take steps for development of alternate energy sources.

Chennai leads the country in having the largest number of certified green buildings and once the administration building is certified it will add to the tally.”
