For the first time, the organisation has put together a mounting structure
The Organisation for Rehabilitation of Blind in Tiruchi (ORBIT), a factory run by the visually-challenged and hearing impaired persons, has proven its mettle in fabricating the mounting structure for solar-powered street lights.
Workers of ORBIT have recently fabricated a mounting structure based on the design suggested by Supertech Enterprises, Tiruchi, a green energy appliances dealer.
“This is the first time that the ORBIT had obtained orders for making such support structure. We hope we would get more orders from solar-powered equipment firms,” said I. Raja Mohamed, manager of ORBIT.
“This is a pilot project entrusted upon ORBIT and the work was up to industrial standards. And we have decided to use the mounting structure, ” says T. Vivek Murali, Head — Business Operations of Supertech Enterprises.
He chanced to visit the factory, founded decades ago, and noticed the extraordinary skills possessed by the workers in producing industrial appliances.
There was a growing awareness about green energy, added Mr. Murali.
“We understood the requirement and, using our expertise, we completed the work within three days,” says S. Saravanan, R. Ramkumar, and R. Karthick Kumar, the team involved in fabricating the structure.
