Cooper Corporation, one of
India’s leading engine manufacturers is amongst the first in the industry to
get approval from Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) to develop a
series of gas generator sets (gensets) ranging from 10 KVA – 25 KVA, that are
certified to be compliant with the new mass Emission norms being administered
by the Central Pollution Control Board in India.
The amended rules mandate all
manufacturers, importers or assemblers of generator sets in India to comply
with the cleaner emission standards. With the revised Central Pollution Control
Board’s norms, Cooper Corporation is all set to deliver gensets in the Natural
Gas /LPG variants along with the existing portfolio of Diesel gensets which
comply with the new guidelines.
Cooper Corporation in the
coming months will be launching ARAI certified Gas engines powering Generators
up to 250 KVA. These engines are specially designed for use with Natural Gas/
LPG as against other retro fit options. Besides substantially lower emissions,
these gensets offer the benefit of lower operating costs and significantly
lower sound level. These gensets come as a boon to the power-starved consumers,
especially in the Delhi / NCR belt, which are reeling under severe air
Cooper Corp’s Gas Gensets will
find utility and takers in homes, farmhouses, bungalows, hotels, retail
outlets, IT offices, telecom towers and hospitals among others. These gas
gensets will be produced at company’s Satara plant in the western State of
Maharashtra and will be made available through its widest sales and service
networks comprising more than 80 dealers with over 200 touch points nationally.
The engine business
contributes 15% of Copper’s total turnover, growing at a CAGR of over 25% in
the medium term (3 to 5 years). The company also exports engines & gensets
to overseas markets like South East Asia, Middle East, Africa, Saudi Arabia,
Russia, Ukraine & Central America.
Commenting on the deed,
Farrokh N. Cooper, Chairman and Managing Director, Cooper Corporation Pvt. Ltd
said, “We strongly believe that CPCB Emission Norms was a breakthrough legislation,
enabling Indian engines to contribute to the ‘Clean Power’ movement in India
and to compete with those in Europe and America. It is a very proud moment for
us to be the first in the industry to be ready with this range of gas gensets
“At Cooper, we have always
been driven by engineering excellence, proactively investing in latest
technologies to produce products adhering to the latest regulations, way ahead
of time and the approval from ARAI for gas gensets makes us even more
confident,” added Cooper.
