Kenya’s Moi International Airport to install solar photo voltaic system

Kenya’s Moi International Airport in Mombasa has set the pace in East Africa by being the first airport in the region set to install a solar photo voltaic system.

The new 500 kiloWatt solar photovoltaic system which will be installed by Solarcentury East Africa will generate 820,000 kW per hour per year and enable Moi International Airport to save thousands of dollars per year on grid consumption for at least 25 years, while reducing aviation carbon emissions.

Solarcentury will also install an airport gate electrification equipment consisting of a mobile electric-powered pre-conditioned air unit (PCA) and an electric power converter that will provide uninterrupted power to the PCA.
