Mr. Srivastava, Director, Kirloskar Brothers honoured


Mr. Ramesh Srivastava, Director, Kirloskar Brothers Limited  (KBL), a global fluid management company  is honoured with the “Power Persona of the Year Award for Individual Excellence in the “HYDRO POWER” section at the prestigious Enertia Awards 2011.

Mr. Srivastava is honored with this second life-time achievement award for his outstanding contribution to the pump industry with notable successes being “US patented Siphon system designed for the Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Limited (SSNL)” - World’s largest pumping station application and also for playing a leading role at Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL) in indigenization of the concrete volute pumps for power plants & circulating applications. For his contribution to water sector and ultimately to the society, Mr. Srivastava was conferred a Life Time Achievement Award in 2007 instituted by Water Digest, a prestigious global magazine for water solutions, under the aegis UNESCO.
Mr. Srivastava, a post graduate from IIT, Mumbai has done the institution and KBL proud with his significant contributions in the power sector spanning over a period of four decades. Under his guidance, KBL developed critical innovative designs and pumping technologies and invested in state-of-the-art infrastructure.

Addressing the young engineers Mr. Srivastava stated, “Among all definitions of “Engineer” that I have come across, the best is, an engineer is an ‘originator’ or ‘innovator’. As a responsible engineer, one should explore various possibilities for the continued progress of industrialization and economic development. Effective fluid handling is not only a business but also a service to the nation at large. When I look back at my involvement in fluid machinery, I am very fortunate to contribute to this industry and subsequently our country in terms of food security, water security and towards power security. In my opinion fluid handling is not only a science but an art which can be mastered only by practice and experimentation. As young engineers you should innovate to serve our nation.”

Mr. Srivastava expressed his gratitude to Mr. Sanjay Kirloskar, Chairman and Managing Director, Kirloskar Brothers Limited for providing him the opportunity to serve the pump industry in the area of fluid machinery and fluid power. He also stated that this Award was an inspiration to achieve many more milestones in future.
