Amit Pidiha, VP of the Mejia cement plant, received the 'Energy Efficient Unit' award from Ajay Mishra, Special Secretary Power, Government of Telangana state and Mr Pankaj Kumar, Secretary, Bureau of Energy Efficiency.

Mr Pidiha said: "This is a proud moment for all of us at Nuvoco. This recognition represents the industry's acknowledgment of our efforts and we will continue to pursue such initiatives in order to keep our operations at their efficient best. I would also like to thank the CII for providing a great forum and an opportunity to learn from other industries, which will help companies go a long way in fostering awareness in the area of energy efficiency."

Meanwhile, Nuvoco has appointed Jayakumar Krishnaswamy as the company's new managing director, after Ujjwal Batria has left to join Dalmia Cement. Mr Krishnaswamy will be responsible for the business divisions of cement, ready mix and aggregates.
