Mactan Cebu International Airport

The project was awarded to Solenergy by GMCAC, an International consortium of GMR Group (developer and operator of airports worldwide) and Megawide Construction Corp. The system comprises 65 Fronius Symo 3-phase inverters, offering real-time online system monitoring and added safety functionality, such as arc and ground fault protection. The racking system was custom designed by Solenergy, with a cast in place ballast solution offering resistance to elevated wind speeds that are often experienced in the Visayas region. Solenergy also supplied a bespoke curtailment solution to enable the client to operate the PV system in parallel with their gensets, in case of brown out. In addition to such a notable solar power system, GMCAC also commissioned Solenergy to re-engineer the power room of Terminal 1. This included design, supply and installation of panelized switchgear and resin encased busduct system. The ability to offer advanced AC-side power solutions, further differentiated Solenergy from other suppliers. GMCAC demanded a full-service contractor for their ambitious new power plant and only Solenergy fit the bill.
