The photovoltaic Low-e glass of Onyx Solar will transform the new terminal at this modern airport, one of the largest in South America, in a building that generates its own energy from the sun.

Viracopos airport

Onyx Solar has provided the International Airport of Viracopos-Campinas with more than 4,000 photovoltaic glass units which will cover a total area of 3,240sqm. The photovoltaic installation will reach a total capacity of 117 kWp.  The project at this incredible Brazilian airport signifies the largest South American project yet for Onyx Solar.

This photovoltaic low emissivity glass is being installed on the building’s roof as 33 skylights. The beneficial characteristics include its semi-transparency to allow the diffusing of the sunlight; protection against solar radiations (UV & IR); and thermal and acoustic insulations.  Due to the nature of the continuous flow of aircrafts in the vicinity, the acoustic insulation has a great deal of importance.

Viracopos airport

The Viracopos International Airport is located in the city of Campinas, an important Brazilian center of scientific, technological, and industrial development, part of São Paulo.  Known for harboring major university centers, the city has an access to the best roads in the country and has a large industrial park in its metropolitan area.

Viracopos, the second largest cargo terminal in Brazil, has been experiencing a significant increase in the passenger transportation over the recent years.  It is one of the fastest growing airports in the country. The goal of the Viracopos International Airport is to become the largest and most modern airport in Latin America with the capacity of receiving 25 million passengers annually.
