Enerparc Energy Pvt. Ltd., a subsidiary of Global Solar Solution provider, Enerparc AG, Germany recently announced receipt of 5MWp Ground Mounted Solar PV order from GMRs Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHAIL), Hyderabad.
This captive phase II project will be located close to the Hyderabad International Airport Terminal and in close proximity to the existing 5MWp Phase I ground mounted Solar Plant which was also designed, engineered, constructed and maintained by Enerparc Energy.
“This receipt of further 5MWp Solar Power Plant order from GHAIL shows their trust and believe in Enerparc as a partner. Enerparc which has already commissioned 270 MW of solar installations on airports globally will be able to realize this project with high quality standards and on time execution”, said Mr. Santosh, Managing Director of Enerparc Energy Pvt. Ltd.
Energy cost contributes to almost 20% of operational cost of any larger operational airport. Hence any measure that achieves reduction in consumption of conventional energy is always welcome. The existing 5MWp solar plant which was commissioned in 2015, generates around 25,000 units of green energy for GHAIL, meeting 30% of the airport’s demand. The realization of savings achieved with 5MWp Phase I installation along with green energy commitment of GHAIL laid the foundation for further expansion in Phase II which will have potential to power 4800 homes and to reduce 7300 Metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.
Looking towards experience of Enerparc in installing solar projects on airports worldwide and our experience with them on Phase I construction and O&M, we decided to give responsibility of execution of Phase II to Enerparc India, and I am sure this project also would get executed with world class workmanship said Mr. Jagadeeswara Rao S, Vice President & Head – Infra, Planning & Development at GHAIL. Execution of Phase II would enable GHAIL to meet their 80% of day time load using solar power.
