Solar powered Cochin Airport to become World’s first ‘Green Airport’

Written By Boneless Research on Thursday, 13 August 2015 | 13.8.15


Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) installed 12MW solar plant costing ₹62cr at ₹5.17 per MW. CIAL installed more than 46,000 solar panels across 45 acres to generate 50,000 to 60,000 units of electricity per day. As a result, Cochin Airport would become completely energy neutral to become first Green Airport in the world.

The plant to be inaugurated on 18th August is equivalent to reduction of 3 lakh metric CO2 emission from coal powered power generation plants over next 25 years. The generation capacity of 12MW solar power plant is 18 million units per year. Bosch was awarded the contract and it did commendable job by setting up plant in less than 6 months.

For fast growing Indian economy, need for energy is rising rapidly. The welcomed initiative by CIAL to adopt Renewable Power to become 100% solar powered organization would boost adoption of Green Energy in coming days.
