(Business in Cameroon) - State-owned Aéroports du Cameroun (ADC) announced it deployed 3,840 solar panels, over more than 14,000 m2, at Douala airport.

This project backed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), ADC says, targets a low-carbon production by the planes. The move also aims at “generating nearly 1.5 MW to power aircrafts via the Ground Power Units that ADC is currently acquiring”.

According to Thomas Owona Assoumou, Managing Director of ADC, it is an innovative project as it will sharply reduce carbon emissions and also improve energy availability within the airport.

Figures by Aéroports du Cameroon showed that the Douala International Airport remains very attractive with 18 operational airlines. In 2017, it welcomed 1.03 million passengers.
