FIMER Gets Selected For Africa’s Largest Airport-Solar Project

Feed Solar

FIMER, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of solar inverter solutions, has provided its technology for a 1.4 MW rooftop solar system on the Ahmed Ben Bella International Airport in Oran, Algeria’s second largest city.

The project is the largest rooftop photovoltaic installation of its kind in Africa and one of only a few global examples where solar has been used as a primary source of power for an airport.

The project, part of a major enlargement and modernization initiative at the airport by the country’s transport ministry will see the PV plant generate approximately 3,038 MWh of electricity per year, resulting in the airport receiving almost 30 percent of its energy from the rooftop installation.
