ADB Safegate has won a contract to install its SafeLED airfield lighting (AGL) at the second runway of Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru (BLR Airport) located in the Indian state of Karnataka.

The BLR Airport is operated by Bangalore International Airport (BIAL). After installation, the runway is set to become India’s first and only LED-powered runway.

It is being constructed by L&T on an engineering procurement and construction (EPC) basis and is slated to become operational by October next year.

The SafeLED AGL range provides lower maintenance and power costs, in addition to offering higher levels of safety, availability and efficient operations.

Bangalore International Airport chief project officer Tom Shimmin said: “As the BLR Airport gears up to support 55 Air Traffic Movements per hour on its second runway, ensuring safe and efficient operations will remain paramount.

“With our focus on safety and efficiency of flight operation, there is no room for error.”

“With our focus on safety and efficiency of flight operation, there is no room for error. We believe that ADB Safegate’s LED airfield lights will bring us the advantages of performance, cost and energy gains, ease of operation and maintenance, and overall safety and efficiency.”

Under the contract, ADB Safegate will design and supply the AGL, as well as Advanced Visual Docking Guidance Systems (A-VDGS).

Additionally, the company will supply its SafeLED lights, constant current regulators (CCRs) for power management, cables, lighting and control systems such as the ALCMS and ILCMS.

ADB Safegate’s Safedock T1 and T2 variants of A-VDGS will be connected with the airport’s existing apron management system to improve performance at the gate.

The company has teamed up with its local partner and L&T to complete the project in four phases, with an expected timeline of more than two and a half years.

Featuring an advanced CAT-III (B) instrument landing system, the new runway will be able to cater to all types of aircraft, including Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-8.

BIAL recently awarded a contract to Vision-Box to introduce a paperless biometric self-boarding service at BLR Airport.
