Soorty, Pakistan’s largest vertically integrated denim firm, has announced a 6.26 MW captive Solar Power Project as well as a 750 kW/369 kWh Reflex Energy Storage System (solar hybrid controller). The project is spread out throughout Nooriabad and Landhi. Soorty will become Pakistan’s second facility to house an energy storage solution as a result of this project.
Soorty has been investing in revolutionary technologies for years, creating ecologically and socially responsible denim production processes that help minimize the use of water, chemicals, and energy. Soorty operates under the tagline DENIM AS A POWER OF GOOD, with a strong focus on planet conservation, human worth, and devotion to its workers’ health and safety, and with data-driven openness as its guiding.
As one of the world’s largest vertical denim makers, Soorty understands that large-scale manufacturing has an influence — one with the potential to alter things. They are committed to having a good influence on the environment and society by using less of what is restricted while making more and better use of what is available.
The 6.26 MW Solar PV plant is estimated to generate 9198 MWh (Megawatt hours) per year. The generated energy will be used on-site, resulting in significant savings for the organisation. Over the course of the project, the energy generated will save roughly 5656 Tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions, which is comparable to planting around 229950 trees.
Soorty has also supported NASDA Green Energy Limited in its efforts to generate wind power. The Windfarm, located in Sindh, Pakistan, began producing 50 Megawatts of safe, renewable electricity for the national grid on May 1, 2022. The initiative’s energy will save roughly 67000 Tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions per year on the national grid, which is comparable to planting nearly 300000 trees per year.
Soorty identifies themselves as engineers at heart with a desire to be restorative by design; devoted to being the world’s most responsible denim maker on a large scale, and these numerous projects to which the firm is committed are how this objective will be realised.
