Wind Engineering and Renewable Power Generation

As the world demand for renewable power increases, VKICL play a vital part in manufacturing of renewable power. The plates used in wind engineering are subjected to high wind, tower and buckling loads due to rotation of blades. Thus, these plates are required to have high strength and toughness, good weldability and formability.  VKICL works in partnership with its clients to offer steel plates which are optimized for plates for windmills subjected to high wind speeds and buckling loads due to blades rotation. This helps our clients to lead in the marketplace. VKICL has worked with many wind energy manufacturers like Regen Powertech Private Limites, Gamesa Wind Turbines Private Limited, Suzlon Energy Limited and Inox Wind Limited. VKICL not only believes in sustainable alternate energy solutions, but also invests in the same. Currently, VKICL owns a windmill in Maharashtra.
