APT Pranoto Airport to receive 1,800-panel solar rooftop upgrade

The APT Pranoto Airport in Samarinda, Indonesia, is to be upgraded with a 1,800-panel solar rooftop.

APT Pranoto Airport is to become one of the major airports in Indonesia, following the government’s decision to move the capital city from Jakarta to Kutai, East Kalimantan, in 2024.

“This project will drive down costs and carbon footprint in a safe and sustainable way,” said Gavin Adda, CEO of Total Solar DG SEA.

“This project is a new milestone in our commitment to developing renewable energies and we are looking forward to keep providing clean energy for Indonesian customers.”

Dodi Cahyadi, head of APT Pranoto Airport, noted: “Following the direction from the government of Indonesia to start running green initiatives and sustainable acts, APT Pranoto Airport has decided to respond to this guidance.

“We are very proud to be able to lead the way towards this programme and sincerely hope this project will add a positive contribution to the country and it may serve as exemplar for other airports.”
