New Delhi: Bosch Ltd on Tuesday said that it has commissioned a 12 MW solar power project for Cochin International Airport, which was inaugurated by Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.

"Bosch Limited, a leading supplier of technology and services, has commissioned a 12 MW solar project for Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL)," the company said in a press release.

According to the statement, the project is the single largest solar project which has been constructed in an airport in India. It is spread over 50 acres.

The project, executed by the Bosch Energy and Building Solutions (BEBS) team in India, is estimated to generate approximately 50,000 units of electricity daily.

Through this project, coupled with an earlier installed capacity of 1.1 MW, CIAL will technically become 'grid power neutral'.

CIAL managing director V J Kurian said, "Bosch completed the project meticulously and we are happy to have the firm execute this project on time and as per standards."

"India has the potential to achieve the government's ambitious target of 100 GW of solar power generation in the country by 2022 and Bosch is committed to be a part of this success story," Bosch Limited managing director Steffen Berns said in the statement.

As of 2:14 p.m., shares in Bosch were trading 0.29 per cent lower at Rs 25144.75 apiece on the BSE, underperforming the broader markets.
