Lakshmi Energy and Foods, one of the largest private paddy processors in Punjab with a capacity of processing 1 million metric tonne of paddy per annum that diversified into biomass based power generation last year, plans to consolidate its energy business further.

Another 15 MW was commissioned in February 2009. The biomass based power plants were envisaged keeping in view the availability of in-house rice husk available as a by-product of paddy processing facility in the same premises at Khamanon.

It has decided to add 53 MW capacity to its existing capacity of 30 MW at its plant located in Khamanon, 45 kilometers from Chandigarh on Chandigarh to Ludhiana highway. An additional land of 35 acre adjoining the existing facility would be purchased to expand the energy production. The company’s operations would be spread over an area of 125 acre after the final negotiations of the additional land. The plant is likely to be complete in 24 months.
