GMR Hyderabad Airport Saves Rs 10 Cr By Employing Solar Power

As per GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL), it has saved Rs 10 crore in the last one year since it has employed solar power to power airport operations.

According to the information tendered, GHIAL owns solar power capacities totaling 10 MW. The entity had commissioned a 5 MW solar power plant meant for the captive consumption of the airport. In 2021, GHIAL expanded this solar capacity to 10 MW.

GHIAL said that the facility sprawls out to over 45 acres and has more than 30,000 solar power panels in place, sufficient  to generate 10 MW of electricity. The solar power facility is fitted with advanced ABB central inverters and polycrystalline PV panels.  They are said to be of superior quality than the mono-crystalline solar panels.

Pradeep Panicker, CEO, GHIAL said, “As a sustainable airport operator, we have rolled out many initiatives to actively reduce the carbon emissions. As a member airport of the Airports Council International, we are aiming to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.”
