Vikram Solar will design, install and commission this 100 Kwp capacity Solar PV Power System at the Airport. The solar power facility will consist of mounted solar panels which will generate DC electric power. The electric power generated by the solar panels will not be fed directly into the utility grid. The inverters will cover the direct current output from the solar array into a grid compliant AC voltage which will feed it into the utility grid system. Power evacuation will be through connections with LT voltage for local or grid export. The proposed energy production will be at an estimated 148 MWh per year with a capacity of 100 kWp. The energy capacity of each PV module will reach upto 240 - 250 Wp.
This is an excellent opportunity and a path breaking vision that has been brought to light by the Cochin Airport Authority in encouraging the use of “ Green “ energy for such critical service utilities and will definitely open the doors with all other Airports and Utility services towards the use of sustainable Clean & Green Power and help support the “ reenergizing “ of the environment. “This also will be a very welcome sight for the many millions of foreign visitors that will use the airport facilities at this Gateway into the Middle East at Cochin airport, from & into India and help spread the success story of our country going the “ green “ way riding the crest of empowerment of the JNNSM Solar Policy in India “ says Mr. Shaibal Ghosh, President – International Business & Head Marketing at Vikram Solar.
Mr. Gyanesh Chaudhary, Director, Vikram Solar, commented on the occasion, “We are honored to get an opportunity to install our Modules and give our services for the improving the facilities at the Cochin International Airport. We are thankful to the airport authorities for giving us an opportunity to showcase our expertise. I am confident that we will successfully implement this prestigious project as per target timelines.”
