In February, IOCL had issued a tender for setting up of a 2 MW solar power plant at its bottling plant in Dhanaj, Maharashtra. The power generated by the plants will be used for captive consumption at multiple IOCL locations across Maharashtra through Open Access Agreement and Energy Wheeling Agreement.

In December 2018, the company inaugurated India’s first 24×7 solar-powered fuel retail outlet in Kochi, Kerala. Sanjiv Singh, Chairman of IOC, who inaugurated the outlet also mentioned that Kerala is the first state in which all IOCL owned fuel outlets are fully automated.

“Automation ensures quality and builds the faith of the customer. Besides, it gives deep insights into the company into customer behaviour through data analytics. It also helps the dealer in stock reconciliation on a real-time basis,” said the chairman.
