MIAL_CSIA_Certificate of Appreciation GVK Mumbai International Airport Private Limited (MIAL), the company that administers Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) was recently awarded for its magnificent green building – the Terminal 2, an edifice that today stands as the pride of nation, at the prestigious Honeywell Smart Building Awards 2017.

 

MIAL was presented with three esteemed awards namely -in India award, Most Productive Building in India award and Smartest Largest Airport Building Award in recognition of its green, safe and productive structure – the Terminal 2.

 

Energy efficiency and sustainability have always been at the core of all operations at Mumbai Airport. The construction of Terminal 2, designed with a capacity of 40 million passengers per annum, was planned in accordance with green building guidelines. In addition to this, the airport design was also envisioned keeping in mind the environmental impact of such a vast structure.

 

The airport makes a conscious effort in optimally utilising available resources through maximizing use of natural light, recycling of water & organic waste, generating solar power and  using technologies like Building Management System, SCADA System, Lighting Control System, Fire Alarm System etc. In addition to this, the facility functions as a silent airport despite the quantum of operations.CSIA_Honeywell Awards_2

 

These distinct green features have been recognised globally through multiple accolades. The airport has received carbon neutrality certification by the Airports Council International; the platinum rating by the Indian Green Building Certification (IGBC) and recently, the Emerson Cup 2017 at the prestigious Green Building Congress, to name a few..

 

 

Some of the highlights of the Terminal 2 as Green Building:

Ø  The Terminal 2 design maximizes use of natural light with strategically-placed skylights throughout the check-in hall reduce the terminal’s energy usage by 23%, while a 50-foot-tall glass cable-stayed wall—the longest in the world—creates a transparent façade.

 

Due to T2’s unique structure, the terminal has day light in around 51% of regularly occupied space. It also features building management system monitoring with stand alone control system interface with the power monitoring to create a truly energy efficient building.

 

Ø  Besides this, the airport uses high-value (R30) thermal insulation in the roof to prevent heat gain. The heat island effect is reduced by providing 100-per-cent underground car parking to minimise impact on microclimate, human and wildlife habitat. Indoor air quality is maintained by controlling chemicals and pollutants through MERV 13 filters in air-handling units and low-VOC compliant paints, adhesives, carpet and composite wood.

 

 

Ø  Apart from the structure, the airport also contributes towards the environment through water and waste recycling. The airport recycles 25 per cent of the water used by every passenger with the help of three sewage treatment plants. The recycled water is then utilised for toilet flushing, cooling and in the airport’s green spaces. MIAL installed an organic waste converter to convert organic waste (food waste) generated from the airport operations into organic manure. The converter boasts of 1 mt per day capacity (single-shift operation) with a shredder for garden, non-vegetarian and other waste.

 

Ø  MIAL contributes 1,060 kWp of solar power towards saving the environment through its plants installed at five different locations across T2 and cargo terminals.

 

Ø  The airport has installed Noise Desk, a Web-based system that monitors and manages sound levels to efficiently implement noise abatement procedures and programmes.
