Lanka Industrial Estates Ltd (Lindel) Opened its Newest Laboratory Premises

Since its inception, LINDEL has emerged as the country’s premier industrial infrastructure solutions provider and is presently home to over 35 tenants representing various industries including construction chemicals, agriculture, aluminium, lubricants, packaging, FMCG, transport, power and energy, galvanizing and steel fabrication.

Situated on 100 acres of land at Sapugaskanda, LINDEL provides its tenants with suitable spaces for industrial activity and supports them with a comprehensive range of industrial infrastructure solutions that meet the highest standards in Sri Lanka, along with many international standards.

LINDEL is the product of a successful public-private partnership between DFCC Bank PLC and the Government of Sri Lanka.

Discussing the Company’s 30th anniversary, Mr. Lakshman Silva, Chairman of LINDEL said,

“LINDEL is probably one of the best examples of a successful public-private partnership in Sri Lanka.

So, it’s with great pleasure that we mark our 30th anniversary this year.

LINDEL’s facilities extend over 100 acres of land, which is fully developed and tenanted by leading enterprises.

The high demand experienced in recent times for industrial infrastructure solutions and space close to the capital has made LINDEL’s proposition highly attractive for Sri Lanka’s top companies.”

LINDEL’s excellent location in the Sapugaskanda area provides quick and easy access to the Colombo Harbour, Bandaranayake International Airport and the Outer Circular Expressway, while the interior roads of the Estate are wide and built of concrete to allow easy access for heavy vehicles.

Industrial plots are provided to tenants in 1-to-4-acre allotments and comprise of buildings ranging from 5,000 to 50,000 square feet.

Placing emphasis on the Company’s commitment to sustainability, Mr. B.R.C.Cooray, CEO added,

“Environmental sustainability is a core part of our ethos, which is why we provide probably the best services in Sri Lanka for industrial waste management and renewable energy, through our onsite treatment and processing facilities and solar power implementations.

Our record with the Central Environment Authority of Sri Lanka is also unblemished.

Going forward, we have ambitious plans in place to transform LINDEL into an eco-industrial estate, continuing to serve our tenants and support them in achieving environmental and social sustainability goals for a green future.”

All amenities required by industrial enterprises are provided by LINDEL onsite, including a comprehensive storm drain system capable of handling up to 100mm of rainfall per hour and 20MW of power supply provided by the CEB, along with an underground fibre optic telecommunication network provided by Sri Lanka Telecom.

In addition to this, LINDEL provides security for the estate premises and the site is located within a high-security zone that is under the close watch of the Sri Lanka Police and Army.

The Estate also has its own independent perennial water supply source directly from the Kelani River, which is processed and treated in order to produce up to 9,000 cubic metres of potable water per day that meet SLS standards for potable water.

20,000 cubic meter storage tanks also work to ensure sufficient supply for industrial requirements.

Industrial waste management, both solid and effluent, is also handled by LINDEL, with the capability of handling and treating all kinds of non-toxic industrial waste within the estate.

Toxic waste is channelled through the collection and disposal systems of the Biyagama Pradeshiya Sabha.

For wastewater, LINDEL maintains a standard for pre-treatment, and effluents that meet that standard are further treated by LINDEL and released into the Kelani River with zero impact to the environment.

LINDEL also provides a network of fire hydrants and an industrial laboratory accredited by the Sri Lanka Accreditation Board(SLAB) under ISO 17025: 2017 for many testing parameters carried out by the laboratory.

Lindel industrial laboratories Ltd (LILL) is registered under Central Environmental Authority for environmental monitoring and analysing.

The company was also recognized at the 56th Annual Report Awards with a Bronze Award in the Land and Property Sector, emerging as the only non-listed company in the sector to receive an award.
