Mitsubishi Electric has supplied 7,946 photovoltaic modules to Japan Airport Terminal Co., which manages Tokyo International Airport, otherwise known as Haneda Airport, for a roof-mounted system of over 1.2MW. The airport structure is installed on the roof of the two passenger terminals and car parking, covering a total surface of 9,411m2.
The system will also contain a 829.54kW sub-system made up of 4,366 PV modules installed on the roof of Terminal 1, a 167.2kW system of 880 modules installed on the roof of Terminal 2 and a 249.75kW system of 2,700 half-size modules on the roof of the P4 car parking.
The renewable electricity generated will power part of the two passenger terminals and car parking. The system is expected to generate 1,157MWh annually. This installation works towards the airport’s goal of decreasing its CO2 emissions by utilizing renewable energy and reducing energy used for air conditioning and lighting.
