Mumbai Airport to introduce hybrid power project

The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) in Mumbai has launched a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) and Solar PV hybrid (Solar Mill) in a bid to explore the possibility of wind energy utilisation 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.

The airport authority said 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 airport authority told the media that this technology is a crucial step in deploying a solution at the airport that is clean, green, renewable, bird-friendly, environment-friendly, and a silent solution with a 25-year design life.

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.
