The SOMO consortium members for the Luxembourg Airport renovation include Colas, Felix Giorgetti SàRL, C Karp-Kneip Constructions and JDC Airports.

The project details were announced by the airport’s operator Lux-Airport. It involves the restoration of the airport’s single 4,000m long runway.

The refurbishment works will include complete renewal of the runway, including side strips, water drainage and signs, as well as the installation of a modern LED system to save energy and cut CO₂ emissions.

Preparatory works under the project have already started and changes such as a new security checkpoint were implemented to provide access to the construction site.

Main works include piecewise replacement of the asphalt layer and fitting a new drainage system.

SOMO Findel Airport Consortium will carry out renovation from spring to autumn in the airport’s night curfew over the next two years.

Lux-Airport chief executive officer René Steinhaus said: “We are building a new runway on top of the old one at night-time while keeping the only runway of our country open for all regular flight schedules. Therefore, it was important to us to choose a well-experienced construction partner.”

In addition, the project will be executed in sections to keep the runway operational during the whole process. Regular flight schedules will remain unaffected.

More than 300 people will start working every day on the project, starting in June.

SOMO Consortium spokesperson Stéphane Brondino said: “The entire concept is designed to be efficient, safe and sustainable. Luxembourg will get a state-of-the-art runway in a high-speed timeframe.”
