About Cochin International Airport ( CIAL Infra Ltd )
Cochin International Airport is the first solar-powered airport in India that meets all its energy needs with the help of a 12 MW solar power plant built with German engineering technology.
The commercial cultivation of organic vegetables is being done on the area covered by the photovoltaic panels of the airport's solar plant.
Using a combination of crop management and drip irrigation, a variety of vegetables are grown over approximately 45 acres of land in between the panels.
The moisture retained in the soil by the plant roots also helps keep the panels dust free and saves the cost of de-weeding the land
