Jump to the comments

Enerparc Energy Pvt Ltd has announced the completion of ground breaking ceremony within Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) complex for setting up 5MWp solar power plant. The energy generated from the solar power project would be internally consumed at the airport.

Commenting on the development, Mr. SGK Kishore, CEO, GMR Hyderabad International Airport said, “RGIA is one of the major hubs in Southern India and the first Greenfield airport to be built and operated on a public private partnership model. Over the years we have adopted several green practices and have received prestigious Awards such as ACI Level-3(Optimization) Airport Carbon Accreditation.  The 5Mwp solar project will take our commitment further by producing enough green power to meet the entire day-time requirement of the airport. ” The project would be constructed occupying approximately 25 acres of barren land within airport premises. Now with ground breaking ceremony done, work on project has started in full swing and it is expected to achieve grid connection within next 3 months. Once installed, solar system would help GHIAL in reducing carbon emission by whopping 6500 Tons per annum furthering their cause of environmental protection and growing business in sustainable manner.

“We are absolutely delighted to work with GMR Hyderabad International Airport on this 5MWp solar project. Solar energy has reached grid parity in India and in many states it is cheaper to generate your own energy using sunlight rather than buying from the utility. Such self-generation and consumption projects as that of Hyderabad International Airport are trendsetters and we are delighted to be selected as an EPC and O&M contractor for the same,” said Mr. Santosh K M - Managing Director, Enerparc Energy Private Limited.

With envious track record of installing more than 285MWp of solar power plants in airports across the globe including an existing 2.1MWp solar project in Delhi International airport in India, Enerparc has the requisite knowhow and experience in handling such complex projects

With ever increasing commercial tariffs and high demand of energy, many airports in India are looking at ways and means of reducing energy cost and installing solar power plant is one of the novel idea they have hooked upon. Enerparc is already in discussions with several of them and helping them in their pursuit of converting empty vast tracts of non-usable land in airport premises into cash saving / revenue generating machine.  Enerparc Energy sees huge traction and potential for this market of Captive generation for Self consumption not only on airports but also with many other customers paying industrial and commercial tariffs.

This solar energy is the best alternative energy source to traditional thermal energy to produce electricity. Thermal and other sources of energy sources cause lot on air pollution and destroy environment very badly with emission of poisons gasses. Solar is non pollution and safe guard environment also.

Most public sector firms like airport are changing to solar systems. a large amount of electricity is used in such firms and solar systems help them afford their energy needs in a less and long term investment. Thanks.
