Jamshedpur, May 29: In the continuous endeavor to increase green economy in the Township, Tata Steel Utilities and Infrastructure Services Limited (TSUISL) has introduced another initiative. The company plans to maximise the use of E vehicles in its operation.
The first set of Electric Vehicle (Tata TIGOR E vehicles) have been deployed in its operation on 29th May 2020. These will replace the conventional fuel vehicles thereby helping reduce carbon emissions. These E vehicles have been deployed for movement of the operation and maintenance crew across the city, in Jamshedpur and Seraikela -Kharaswan area where company manages the power distribution. The e vehicles if required can also be charged in the power substations of the company.
On full charge this vehicle can run up to 213 kilometers which is sufficient for current operational requirement.
TSUISL has plans to try and utilize e-Vehicles for all its operation across the city and is continuously evaluating the such possibilities. The company has already deployed e- scooters for field survey work and e-rickshaws for door waste collection and the introduction of e-vehicles will further help in reducing carbon emission contributing towards a healthy environment.
