Mumbai Airport to get electric vehicles charging facilities

You will soon be able to charge electric vehicles at the city airport with the Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) initiating the process of installing electric charging stations in the parking areas at both the terminals. Other than for the general public, the charging stations will also be installed air-side to cater to vehicles of ground handling agencies and airlines.

MIAL is in the process of appointing an operator for the facility. It has floated an expression of interest (EOI) inviting companies to be the concessionaire to build and run the charging stations. The EOI reads, "Install, operate, maintain and manage the charging stations for electric vehicles at multilevel car parks at Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 of Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA), Mumbai, for use of general public and people working at airport and parking their electric vehicles."

An official from the airport, the nation's second busiest, said, "Installation will be done as per the civil aviation guidelines and it will be part of the current operation and maintenance contract."
