GHIAL set to become a 100 pc LED Airport

Hyderabad, Nov 9 (UNI) GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHIAL) has achieved one more milestone in its quest to become a 100 per cent LED Airport.

The airport has completed the conversion of 715 Taxiway Center Line lights from conventional Halogen to the innovative and energy efficient Safe LED IQ lamps.

The project took a month to complete without any impact to airport operations, GHIAL said in a release here on Friday.

With this milestone, Hyderabad International Airport has converted around 58 per cent of Airfield Ground Lighting to LED lamps and now, around 80 per cent of the entire lights at the Airport become LED.

Retrofitted across over 12 km area of the airside, these smart LED lamps are expected to save approximately one lakh unit of energy annually, while helping curb CO2 emissions to about 81000 kg per year.

Speaking on this occasion, GHIAL CEO SGK Kishore said, Hyderabad International Airport has been consistently raising its bar when it comes to environmental sustenance. We are infusing energy efficient technologies at the Airport to reduce our dependency on conventional energy source.

With this milestone, we have now migrated close to 80 per cent of entire airport lights to energy-efficient LED technology, he added.

Hyderabad Airport has also recently converted its 59 mast light fixtures from Metal Halide (MH) lamps to energy efficient LED lamps. These 80-90 feet tall light towers are dotted across the airside and landside of Hyderabad International Airport. These mast lights are used for lighting larger areas, the release said.
