MUMBAI: February 04, 2016. APM Terminals Mumbai has installed rooftop solar panels as part of a three-phase project that is expected to generate five million KWh per year or 15 percent of the terminal’s power requirement.

With around 70 percent of India’s electrical generation from coal-fired power stations, the country is the world’s fourth-largest producer of electricity behind China, the USA and Russia, and the fifth-largest consumer of electricity after Japan.

APM Terminals Mumbai solar panelsAccording to APM, accessibility to carbon-free, renewable energy sources will become increasingly important as India’s population increases by an estimated 200 million (the current population of Brazil) over the next 15 years.

“APM Terminals and the APM Terminals Global Terminal Network are always looking for opportunities to improve services and enhance environmentally sustainable business operations; the Mumbai Solar Panel Project reaffirms our commitment to green power and caring for the Indian environment,” said COO, Ravi Gaitonde.

A feasibility study was completed last year to reduce fossil-fuel power consumption at the terminal (right) that was responsible for two million of the 4.48 million TEUs handled at Mumbai in 2015. Phase II will see the installation of solar panels on the roofs of the STS (ship-to-shore) crane machine houses by June this year.

Last month, APM Terminals and port operating company Compas S.A. set up the Cartagena Container Terminal Operator (CCTO), a new joint venture to manage and operate Compas S.A.’s existing multipurpose facility in Cartagena, Colombia.

APM Terminals will hold a 51 percent majority share in the operation that includes an annual throughput of 250,000 TEUs and 1.5 million tons of general cargo.

CCTO and Compas S.A. will invest US$200 million in expanding and upgrading the facility to handle post-Panamax vessels of 13,000 TEU capacity.
