Mr.A.S.Lakshmanan - Chairman, Senapathy-Whiteley Group Companies while launching Gold 60 Project made an observation based on the fact that Gold 60 uses 2 kwh energy per sqmt compared to 12 kwh in the traditional Gang saws, thus for a production of 2 lakhs sqmt of granite slabs per annum this machine can save 2 million kwh of energy. He remarked that "I wonder whether energy saving is a by product of the Gold 60 multiwire machine".

Dr.B.Shivalingaiah - Managing Director, Karnataka Renewal Energy Development Ltd., while inaugurating the Diamond Tool Technology Development Centre, a Joint initiative of stone Tech International and Bideseimpianti, that 1 kwh energy save is equivalent to 2.5 kwh energy generated. He mentioned efforts in such large scale power saving should be appreciated & encouraged by the concerned agencies both at the State and Central Government level.
