The Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) is the gateway to the Visayas and Mindanao regions in the Philippines. The airport is the second busiest airport in the Philippines and caters to rapidly growing tourists and business traffic.
To make the MCIA more environmentally friendly as well as help them in reducing energy cost a 1.64 MW rooftop solar plant is being installed at the airport premises. This is first solar installation in an airport in the Philippines. Apart from regular challenges of installing any airport solar project, this one has additional challenge in terms of steep roofs and roofs with different orientations.
Enerparc Energy is working with GMR-Megawide Consortium (GMCAC) on this project and assisting them with services like financial analysis, project viability and selection of components as well as construction management for this project. Enerparc is also responsible for the costing as well as project schedule for the plant.
