The project is estimated to save Knorr Bremse INR3.4 million (US$53,000) annually.

Gajanan Nabar, CEO of CleanMax Solar said: “We are pleased to see that rooftop solar is really gaining traction among leading corporates. Besides Knorr-Bremse, other European corporates like Vulkan Group, Carl Zeiss, Konecranes, Carlsberg, and SKF Group have adopted our solar solutions in India.”
