'Have enough capacity to export from India'

Schneider Electric Infrastructure, a manufacturer of products and systems for electricity distribution, has said that it is has enough capacity to export from India.

“Schneider Electric has done a huge investment in India. We have 28 factories and 22,000 employees here,” Prakash Chandraker, Managing Director, Schneider Electric Infrastructure told Deccan Herald.

“We have made huge investments, knowing that this country will provide opportunity for manufacturing,” added Chandraker. Freight On Board value of company's exports for last year was Rs 819.06 million.

He added that they are discussing with the government and policymakers on how to connect with different markets. “It is important as being part of the electrical industry, how you connect with people, as there are different compliance requirements. As SEI, we are exporting. We are not directly going to many places,” Chandraker said.

He also said that he does not see Chinese dumping affecting Schnieder in India. “In India, there are pre-qualification requirements by the customers that you should have this technology in operation. Then only it is qualified to be used in the power system, because it is mission critical application,” he said.

Luminous is the subsidiary of Schnieder, which is into manufacturing solutions for packaged power. “We have mostly seen the surge in our sales recently, even after the massive electrification programme by the government. The frequency of power cuts might have reduced, but power cuts do happen,” said Vipul Sabharwal, Managing Director, Luminous Power.
