As part of the design-construction contract for three new silo car parks for the Marseille-Provence airport, Eiffage Énergie Systèmes is participating in the construction of virtuous buildings, each equipped with 3,000 photovoltaic solar panels on the roofs. In charge of installing the shade structures, our experts also created two high-voltage stations to ensure the electrical distribution of the three car parks and collect the energy produced. Produced within a tight deadline, the P4 will be delivered first, at the end of February.
Terminated in 2020 due to the Covid-19 epidemic, the contract for the design and construction of three new car parks for Marseille-Provence airport was able to restart on new bases at the start of 2023. Objective: construct three buildings of four levels each to create 4,000 additional parking spaces, or 5,570 spaces in total.
In a group with the silo parking expert, Gagnepark, our specialists installed 3,000 photovoltaic solar panels in shade on the R+3 level of the first car park, called P4. They carried out the engineering, design and construction of the shade structures, and they will do the same for the two other car parks, P3a and P3b.
Also holding the high current and low current packages, our electricians have created two high-voltage substations, each playing a crucial role in the sustainability and energy efficiency of the airport, which aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.
“The first station will power the infrastructure of each of the three new car parks, the lighting, the guidance system at the place and the 120 IRVE terminals of the whole. While the second station will be used to inject the energy produced by the 9,000 photovoltaic solar panels installed on roofs into the electricity network of Marseille-Provence airport. This contribution of green energy corresponds to a total power of 3 MW, or 1 MW per car park. This installation will allow the airport to take a big step towards the objective it has set for itself in terms of energy self-sufficiency,” explains Frédéric Gioux, activity manager.
This project, of significant scope for our teams, has three delivery phases and the first approach. Built in just one year so that the airport could accommodate 13 spectators and athletes from the Paris Games in Marignane in good conditions, the P4 must be delivered at the end of February.
