Upsolar installs solar-electric system at Shanghai Pudong Airport

Solar PV modules provider Upsolar has completed the installation of a 1.7MW solar-electric system at Shanghai Pudong International Airport in China.

Solar PV modules provider Upsolar has completed the installation of a 1.7MW solar-electric system at Shanghai Pudong International Airport in China.

The building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) project is currently generating enough clean power to serve the needs of the airport’s parking facility and load devices.

Covering an area of 15,000m² between Terminals 1 and 2, the project also serves as a shading structure for the airport’s air-conditioning units.

"With high-profile projects like this, Upsolar is staking its claim at the forefront of this movement."

The installation is part of the airport officials’ plan to enhance its sustainability with the help of renewable energy.

Upsolar CEO Zhe Jiang said: "Forward-thinking solar technology providers are now incorporating sleek design elements into their products to meet the aesthetic demands of customers and all signs are pointing to BIPV as a key driver of renewable energy in the coming years."

"With high-profile projects like this, Upsolar is staking its claim at the forefront of this movement."

The new system is Upsolar’s second unit at the airport, following the installation of a solar-powered watering system in Terminal 2 in 2010.

One of the largest travel hubs in China, Shanghai Pudong International Airport serves approximately 60 million passengers a year.
