GTI to reduce carbon footprint through partnership with O2 power

Gateway Terminals India, also known as APM Terminals Mumbai took a significant step to further reduce its carbon emissions through a collaboration with O2 power to supply renewable electricity.

The terminal has signed an agreement with O2 power to setup a captive solar power plant. The plant has a capacity to generate 22 million kWh of electricity annually and is expected to meet 80% of terminal’s electricity requirements and reduce its carbon footprint by 44% (15,092 CO2t).

On this occasion, Mr. Sunay Mukerjee, COO of GTI mentioned, “I am delighted to ink this power purchase agreement with O2 Power. By signing this agreement, we reaffirm our commitment to the environment and community. The power agreement marks a significant step forward in our decarbonisation journey.”

Mr. Parag Sharma – CEO and Founder of O2 Power said, “Partnering with GTI, part of APM Terminals, one of the biggest terminal companies in the globe, is a significant addition to our C&I portfolio. This intra-state open access structure, which allows us to supply captive power to GTI from our solar plants in Maharashtra, will empower the terminal to transform their supply-chain operations and turn them green and sustainable. At O2 Power, we are committed to furthering our country’s Green Ports’ ambition and will continue to help organisations with our tailormade green-energy solutions which meet the end-to-end requirements of the maritime industry.”
