CIAL commissions parallel electrical substation for exporting power to grid

Kochi, May 15 (UNI) Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL), the world’s first airport fully powered by solar energy on Wednesday commissioned a parallel 110 KV Electrical substation for exporting the power generated from its eight solar plants to Kerala State Electricity board’s grid.
CIAL Managing Director V J Kurian inaugurated the substation which was constructed at a cost of Rs 16 crore, a release said here on Wednesday.
CIAL had been using only one substation so far to facilitate power banking arrangement with Kerala state electricity board.
This became insufficient as it had augmented its solar power plants total installed capacity to 40 MWp. With the commissioning of additional substation, CIAL is now able to bank the power through two channels; one for the export of power and the other for the import of it form KSEB grid, it said.
At present the 40 MWp solar power plants generate approximately 1.63 lakhs of power a day. The average consumption per day is approximately 1.53 lakh, the release said, adding that the annual saving towards the electricity bill is Rs 36 crore.
The solar power plants contribute to an annual saving of 37,200 MT of greenhouse gas emission.
Airport Director ACK Nair, Executive Director AM Shabeer, CFO Sunil Chacko and others participated in the function.
