Oorja commissioned its first solar thermal project by implementing solar heating solution for Almond House, a 25-year old manufacturer of sweets in Hyderabad. Prior to implementing the solar heating system, milk processing was done by burning diesel to produce steam and use it for producing Khoya (maava) from milk.
By moving on to using solar heating solution, diesel consumption has been reduced by 70%. Oorja has installed is solar parabolic troughs to produce the heat at 140 deg C required to process the milk. The additional benefit of implementing solar heating solution is that there is less fumes and soot emitted in the immediate environment where sweets are prepared.
