The Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) has awarded Fugro a significant land site investigation contract as part of its HK$141.5bn (US$18bn) three-runway system (3RS) project.
Fugro will perform geotechnical drilling and cone penetration tests on newly reclaimed land, and provide laboratory testing to acquire geotechnical data for the new passenger building and related infrastructure.
The 3RS project comprises a 650-hectare land formation program for the construction of a new runway, passenger building and related infrastructure. Upon completion of the 3RS, the airport will be able to serve an additional 30 million passengers annually.
Commenting on the award, Fugro’s regional business line director, Dr Cyril Chan, said, “AAHK is a very important client who shares our values of safety and quality. They recognize that Fugro’s client-focused culture and our strong delivery capability will complement their challenging project schedule. We look forward to providing AAHK with critical subsurface data to help them manage and mitigate their ground risks.”
