Since these types of kilns are many in India and globally, the challenge for AdithyaPower (APPL) was to provide an efficient but cost-effective indigenous solution.

The steps APPL followed:
The customer was convinced with our proposal and took decision to go ahead with APPL solution. AdithyaPower consulted with the best in the industry with the possible options and finally went ahead with implementation.
Materials were supplied within three weeks and manpower was mobilised immediately thereafter. The jobsùincluding dismantling of the old refractory-was completed in 20 days, within committed schedule to the customer.
Customer saved huge amount of money and also indigenisation resulted in saving precious foreign exchange for the country.
Customer awarded second kiln in order with further modification to handle deficiencies encountered by the operation team.
The lime kiln has been restored with complete indigenous solution and both the kilns are functioning well.
