Bengaluru Airport utilises unused rooftops for one of the largest airport onsite solar solutions in India.
Bengaluru International Airport had ambitions to make the most of the unused roofs of their partner facilities, to generate solar power. The Airport Management viewed this as a key project that would contribute towards the Airport’s long-term sustainability objectives.
Delivering the solution in an active airport presented unique challenges. The solution would need to be designed to reduce risk of glare for the pilots and the aircrafts. The project would also need to be constructed in adherence to the requirements of a high-security environment which would impact manpower and material movement.
BECIS installed a solution across eight rooftops using high-efficiency modules. Custom lightweight, leak-proof, and corrosion-proof module-mounting structures were designed, which could sustain high-speed winds. The commissioning of the solution was also done in phases to maximize the cost savings for the customer. Lastly, an online system was deployed to facilitate real-time performance and data monitoring.
