Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA), Mumbai has become India’s 1st airport to launch a one-of-its-kind Vertical Axis Wind Turbine & Solar PV hybrid (Solar Mill) to explore the possibility of utilization of wind energy at the airport. With this, Mumbai will become the first city in India to establish a one-of-its-kind hybrid power project at its airport.
About the Initiative:
- This sustainable initiative undertaken by CSMIA reduces dependence on conventional electricity which propels its journey towards ‘Net Zero’ emissions.
- This fully integrated, hybrid renewable energy product harnesses solar and wind energy merged to produce electricity.
- The energy produced through this technology can be customised on a need-specific basis. It’s easy to mount the technology on any mobile or static rooftop due to its modular and scalable size.
- The hybrid project will be launched in partnership with WindStream Energy Technologies India Pvt Ltd. The plant will need minimal maintenance of installation, unlike any other machines for electrical supply, as per the reports.
