V.C. BIRD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
PIONEERING PROJECT IN ANTIGUA
As a completely new approach of implementing clean energy solutions in the Caribbean Island Region, in 2015 meeco through its joint venture company PV Energy Limited has commissioned a 3 MWp sun2live PV power plant at the V.C. Bird International Airport Antigua, in collaboration with the government of Antigua and Barbuda. The ground-mounted fixed sun2live solar plant was designed to feed the airport with green energy through the island’s grid. More than 12,000 top-tier polycrystalline oursun photovoltaic panels generate up to 4.645 MWh per year and therefore save a substantial amount of 3.019,50 tons of CO2 emissions during the same period, contributing to the reduction of the carbon footprint of the twin island state Antigua and Barbuda.
