ADB Airfield Solutions is undertaking a three-year airfield lighting project that involves the design, supply, installation and maintenance of the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport’s complete Airfield Ground Lighting (AGL) equipment.
Taoyuan International Airport, which has been operational since 1979, is Taiwan’s largest and busiest international airport, while being the primary international hub for China Airlines and EVA Air.
ADB Airfield Solutions CEO Christian Onselaere said that this large-scale, end-to-end project aims not only to refurbish the complete airfield infrastructure but also to modernise it to the latest standards to support the strong growth anticipated in the coming years.
"As a trusted partner, we have worked closely with the airport and understand their need for a complete, end-to-end solutions provider," Onselaere added.
Under the project, ADB will integrate CAT III airfield lighting systems with an individual lamp control and monitoring system that is controlled remotely, providing improved visibility and safety, as well as improved efficiency in maintenance operations.
The project also includes the renewal of the airport’s electrical substations and new power supply systems.
As part of the first phase of the programme, ADB has installed a backup runway, preparing the airport for the upcoming stages of the works.
Over the coming days, the company will replace the present AGL in the southern portion of the airfield, followed by the implementation of the same process in the northern portion.
The three-year project is scheduled to complete at the end of 2015.
According to ADB, the latest project will strengthen its position as the AGL supplier at the Taoyuan International Airport, while reaffirming its AGL presence in the South East Asian region.
