Airport solutions firm ADB Safegate has been chosen to create intelligent airfield solutions for Istanbul New Airport, Ataturk Airport’s soon-to-be replacement.
The company is responsible for the complete visual guidance approach, which is set to begin with an airfield ground lighting (AGL) design review to assess and implement an AGL solution to best suit the airport’s needs.
ADB Safegate has proposed equipping the taxiway system with full switching ability and the addition of a single and double channel Individual Light Control and Monitoring System (ILCMS). The ILCMS will control the lights individually or by defined segments, providing large gains in power savings and making maintenance more cost effective.
The state-of-the-art intelligent lighting will also allow increased flexibility in guidance and routing. Fully equipping the taxiway system with our sustainable solutions will ensure safe operations in all visibility conditions, and the flexibility to optimize capacity.
Christian Onselaere, CEO, at ADB Safegate, said, “Our customers can count on the completeness of our offering in the key domains of airport operations including services.
“Our approach is solid, and considers how each airport can maximize its capacity and performance. We offer solutions to match the needs of the airport, with the option to customize if needed. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with IGA and helping them realize their vision of making the world’s largest airport project at Istanbul a resounding success.”
Around 35,000 intelligent LED lights are expected to power the airfield runways and taxiways, which could make it the world’s biggest AGL implementation. The solution company will also supply and commission all visual aids including transistor regulators, transformers, approach solutions, energy efficient power solutions and mounting equipment.
The deal was signed in September 2016 and deliveries begin this year, continuing into 2018.
