Mumbai airport introduces wind-solar hybrid energy for airport

The Mumbai International Airport introduced the vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) and solar PV mill hybrid to explore the possibility of utilising wind energy for airport operations.

It will ensure round-the-clock energy generation and help in harnessing maximum energy through wind power systems in the Mumbai airport.

The spokesperson of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) told the media that the initiative undertaken by the airport aims to reduce its dependence on conventional electricity and achieve a net-zero emissions target.

To enhance the capacity usage of green energy, CSMIA has deployed a 10 KWp hybrid solar mill, including a 2 KWp turbo mill and 8 KWp solar PV modules, with an estimated minimum energy generation capacity of 36 KWh per day.

WindStream Energy Technologies India Private Limited has developed this first-of-its-kind, fully integrated, hybrid renewable energy product consisting of solar and wind hybrid energy to generate electricity.

According to an official, the energy generated can be customised on a need-specific basis. Because of its modular and scalable size, it is easy to mount the technology on any mobile or static rooftop.

The spokesperson said that the VAWT technology would generate around 13,140 KWh per annum for 25 years and increase renewable energy in the existing energy mix to reduce carbon emissions.

The hybrid energy plant requires bare minimum maintenance of installation, compared to the electrical supply, where load and batteries are attached to the system.

In FY21-22, CSMIA had utilised 9.41 million units of renewable power, including onsite solar power and wind power generation of 5.46 million units and 3.94 million units, respectively.
