Hon’ble President of India Mr Ram Nath Kovind conferring the ‘National Energy Conservation Award 2017’; Managing Director, BORL Mr S S Sunderajan receiving the award at a ceremony conducted in Vigyan Bhavan, New Delhi on 14th Dec 2017

The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), a statutory body under Ministry of Power - Government of India, is engaged in strategizing the country’s objective of reducing energy intensity. BEE constituted the ‘National Energy Conservation Award’ to encourage and recognize companies’ achievements in reaching the goal of reducing energy intensity. Applications are invited across sectors from companies all over India for the prestigious award.

It is matter of immense pride for Bina region and MP state that Bharat Oman Refineries Limited (BORL) won “FIRST PRIZE” in the ‘Refinery’ sector in 2017. The award stands testimony to the Company’s efforts in achieving excellence by optimizing its energy usage. Over the period FY2014-15 to FY2016-17, total energy consumption of refinery reduced by 16% and Specific Energy Consumption (MBN) reduced by over 20%. This could be achieved by initiating various energy conservation measures like implementation of steam network management, optimization of process parameters and recovery flash steam & condensate thereby reducing steam consumption. Electrical power consumption was also optimized by use of renewable energy, converting parallel pump operations to single pump operation and switching to energy efficient lighting systems. Total 59 energy conservation measures costing about Rs 10 crores were implemented during the last three years.

Heartiest Congratulations to Team BORL for the outstanding feat!
