Cochin International to become India’s first solar powered airport

LinkedIn +

Cochin International Airport in Kochi is set to become India’s first power-neutral solar powered airport by setting up a 12MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) plant as part of its green initiative. The new facility will cover approximately 45 acres near the international cargo area.

Bosch implemented the project using components manufactured by Renesola and ABB India. Once complete, the installation is expected to generate around 48,000 units of power per day, which along with the electricity generated from the existing 1.1MWp plants, would be sufficient to meet the power requirement of the airport. The new facility will be commissioned later this month.
