While Centuary’s business operations grew and production of mattresses accelerated, the company wanted to make sure that it functions as a responsible business. Thus, they started to scout for solutions that would not only help their plant run effectively but also make them eco-friendly. After assessing a few options, they considered Solar for energy generation which would be a game changer. Professionalism, absolute focus on quality, and being upfront about all costs made them choose Freyr Energy as their solar partner.

After carefully analysing the energy requirement, costs, savings involved and while keeping the safety risk at minimum, Freyr Energy had commissioned a pilot project of 25KW at Centuary’s Kazipally plant. Subsequent to the successful trial run, an additional 215kW solar power plant was installed in March 2019. With this installation, Centuary is expected to eliminate approximately 329 tons of greenhouse emissions which would be an equivalent of plant 3,750 trees annually. During the first year, the solar plant at Centuary would generate around 3.80 lakh kWh of clean power.

On moving towards green energy, Mr. Uttam Malani, Executive Director, Centuary Mattresses said, “Renewable content is integral to our Business model – whether be its products we make or the way we operate. Centuary has for decades championed use of natural materials such as coir for sleep solutions and has consciously taken this step into renewable energy   to further its sustainability quotient.  I am positive about the wise choice we have made by partnering with Freyr Energy and look forward to installing solar panels at our other plants too”.

Commenting on the successful accomplishment, Mr. Saurabh Marda, Managing Director, Freyr Energy said, “We value Centuary Mattresses as an esteemed customer and applaud them for engaging with renewable energy for their energy requirements. We look forward to a long-term relationship where we continue to provide solar as a way to continually balance their energy needs in a sustainable way”.
