Hyderabad airport commissions solar plant
Adding another green milestone to GMR’s clean energy drive, GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) has commissioned a 5 MW solar power plant for its captive consumption.
Hyderabad: Adding another green milestone to GMR’s clean energy drive, GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) has commissioned a 5 MW solar power plant for its captive consumption. Situated close to the airport access road, the solar power plant has started generating around 25,000 units /day of pollution free energy and meeting the airport’s peak power demand during day time.
“Hyderabad Airport, like other group companies of GMR, is committed towards generating renewable energy. As a part of this commitment, we have commissioned a 5 MW captive solar power plant. This is also in alignment with the government’s solar vision and the recently announced initiative by the Ministry of Civil Aviation to have solar-powered airports," said SGK Kishore, CEO, GHIAL.
We also have plans to go for another 7MW solar power plant as part of our energy neutral objective, he added. The solar power plant has over 16,000 modules of solar panels, each having a fixed tilt for maximum sun exposure.
These modules are based on poly crystalline technology, which is among the most efficient technology available currently. The green energy produced by this 5 MW solar plant is equivalent to meeting daily electricity requirement for about 4800 homes, the company added.
