Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports that the management of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport has gone green in some aspects of the operation of the Island’s newly renovated airport.
PT Angkasa Pura I (PAP I) has installed solar energy panels in an effort to reduce electricity usage.
Tommy Soetomo, the president director of PAP I, told the press that in addition to solar panels steps were also underway to reduce water resumption.
Describing the design of the “new” air gateway in Bali, Soetomo said: “The architectural design, selection of materials and energy uses refer to energy efficiency concepts adopted by many international airports across the world.”
The wave-like design of the airport’s roof not only creates a powerful visual impact but also aid cross ventilation within the airport’s premises, reducing air conditioning demands. Extensive use of glass wall will maximize the use of natural lighting, reducing the need for artificial lighting during daylight hours.
“We will continue eco-airport developments in other places,” Soetomo pledged.
Seeking to advance the concept of eco-airports in Indonesia,
PT Angkasa Pura has signed an agreement with Sintesa Group-Sun Edison. The signing of the agreement was a breakthrough in realizing the development of eco-airports in Indonesia,” according to Farid Indra Nugraha, corporate secretary of PAP I.
Meanwhile the CEO of the Sintesa Group, Shinta Widjaja Kamdani, praised the agreement as a step forward in sustainable development principles.
