VINCI Airports completes modernisation work at Toulon Hyères Airport

VINCI Airports has completed modernisation works at Toulon Hyères Airport in France.

VINCI Airports has completed modernisation works at Toulon Hyères Airport in France.

The programme included renovation of the two runways and taxiways, improvement of runway lighting and work to comply with the established water law.

The project, which began in September last year, was delivered by a consortium of companies involving Eurovia Toulon agency, TP Spada and VINCI Energies subsidiary Degreane.

According to VINCI Airports, the modernisation will help in improving Toulon Hyères Airport’s environmental performance.

The renovated runways meet eco-design and recycling standards while lamella separators will help in removing pollutants in water runoff before recovery.

VINCI Airports chairman and VINCI Concessions CEO Nicolas Notebaert said: “As France embarks on its Green recovery plan, we are happy to continue investing to modernise the Toulon Hyères Airport.

“In this way, we are responding to the mobility needs of the inhabitants and business community in the Var region and helping support the economy of France’s second tourist destination.”

VINCI Airports has been the operator of Toulon Hyères Airport since 2015, under a 25-year concession contract. The airport is one of France’s three mixed-use (civil and military) airports.

As an international airport operator, VINCI Airports operates 45 airports in 12 countries.

Earlier this month, VINCI Airports announced that its subsidiary AERODOM had expanded its photovoltaic park in the airport of Las Americas in the Dominican Republic.

The move increases the peak production capacity of the solar power plant to 3.6MWp.
