HEL admin building bags IGBC Platinum rating
Kolkata: Rabi Chowdhury, Managing Director of Haldia Energy Limited (HEL), announced on Wednesday that its administrative building at Haldia has won the Green Building IGBC Platinum rating from the Indian Green Building Council.
The Haldia Energy Limited (HEL) pavilion at the Haldia Trade Fair is drawing a large number of eager visitors.
An interesting machine, developed specially by IIT Kharagpur for the HEL rehabilitation village, is intended to help incumbents earn economic self-sufficiency. The first muri-making machine, which can produce 35 kg of muri (puffed rice) in an hour, has proved highly useful and profitable. The second muri-making machine from IIT Kharagpur is being installed at the HEL rehab village.
Another interesting exhibit at the HEL pavilion is pictures of Quest Properties, a RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group Company - the Group's major residential housing project at Haldia, now nearing completion.
According to Dilip Sen, Managing Director of the project, "More than 2,00,000 sq ft of high-rise residential construction has been taken up within the Haldia Municipality area. Quest Residency, Haldia will have four high-rise towers – 3 ground+12 floors and 1 ground+11 floors. This modern building with 65 percent open area, will be a Haldia landmark."
Construction is in full swing. Two towers comprising 156 flats will be handed over by the middle of this year. Snapshots of Quest Residency, Haldia, including an artist's impression of the project, are on display at the Haldia Fair pavilion.
Commenting on Haldia Energy's involvement in rehab, a HEL spokesman said that an ideal village has been carefully set up to settle 300 families.
In this model village, every household has hygienic sanitation arrangement. Each home is also provided with drinking water and electricity.
