Enerparc builds 2.14 MW array at Delhi airport


German engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) group Enerparc has completed a 2.14 MW solar installation at the Delhi International Airport in India.

While two other airports in India have smaller-scale solar plants in operation, Delhi is the first to have a megawatt-scale, ground-mounted array, according to India's Hindu Business Line newspaper.

The airport is considering a possible expansion of the solar system's capacity, the paper added.

Other airports in India that are spread over vast areas of land may begin to similarly install large-scale solar farms, according to Business Line. The Hyderabad International Airport, for example, covers more than 5,400 acres (2,185.3 hectares) and could house a 25 MW system on its grounds.

Howeer, glare analyses would need to be conducted before installing PV arrays on airport lands, Enerparc Chief Operating Officer Stefan Mueller told Business Line.
