Honda 2Wheelers India Installs second wind turbine system in Gujarat

Reducing its dependence on non- resources by leveraging hybrid systems (wind & solar), Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Inaugurated its 2nd wind turbine system in Bhanvad (Dwarka district, Gujarat), around 350kms from the company’s Vithalapur plant.

Built with an investment of INR 176 million, Honda will now produce a total of 4.7 MW wind including its first wind turbine system (2 MW capacity) installed in Radhanpur (Patan district, Gujarat) last year.

Noteworthy, HMSI will now meet over 50% of total requirements at its 4 manufacturing plants in Manesar (Haryana), Tapukara (Rajasthan), Narsapura (Karnataka) & Vithalapur (Gujarat) from resources.

Speaking on the inauguration ceremony, Atsushi Ogata, Managing Director, President & CEO, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India said, “As a company aware of its responsibility towards the society, now and in the future, is a key focus area for us at Honda. By reducing our thermal power consumption, HMSI is moving closer towards Honda’s long-term environmental vision to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The inauguration of our second wind turbine in Gujarat is yet another step towards reducing environmental impact of our products and business activities. We continue to remain committed in our efforts towards protecting the natural environment.”
