Mescom to set up five 11 kvfeeders in Puttur

Speaking at a programme, organised to inaugurate Campco’s chocolate-manufacturing unit with an annual production capacity of 600 tonnes and an additional chocolate enrobing unit with an annual production capacity of 720 tonnes and foundation stone for a 36,000-sq ft warehouse to store the factory’s finished products on its premises, she said two feeders will be dedicated to Campco’s chocolate factory and the remaining would be provided to the consumers. With this, the consumers in Puttur town could be provided with quality power. The new feeder will reduce the transmission loss, she added.

District-in-Charge Minister Krishna Palemar who inaugurated VAM technology at the Campco factory, said the Campco should think of using paper instead of plastic for chocolates. The Campco should also include drinking water and arecanut frond plates in its list of products and try to get international market. With the VAM technology, the factory will bring down its power consumption on using air condition units. This machine converts steam into energy for air-conditioning at the factory.

CAMPCO President Konkodi Padmanabha said that the Campco aims at increasing its annual chocolate production at its factory from 14,000 to 23,000 tonnes by 2015. MP Nalin Kumar Kateel inaugurated the extended chocolate factory unit. Coastal Development Authority Chairman B Nagaraj Shetty, MLA Mallika Prasad and others were present.
