ADB Airfield Solutions wins airfield lighting order from Vietnam
21 December 2012
Airports Corporation of Vietnam has selected ADB Airfield Solutions to implement a complete airfield ground lighting solution at the Phu Quoc International Airport. The airport is one of the key projects undertaken by the authority to prepare for the country’s growing popularity as a tourist destination. “State-of-the–art airport infrastructure plays a key role in tourism, and with Phu Quoc emerging as Vietnam’s ecotourism gateway, there was a clear need for an advanced, energy-efficient airport with improved airfield safety,” said Christian Onselaere, CEO of ADB. ADB will implement airfield ground lighting and guidance signs for the taxiway and runway, and install its airfield lighting control system. The company will enable simple power monitoring by providing power equipment including its LV Power Supply System, generator and switch gear. ADB will also supply a fibre-optic backbone to increase reliability of communication between various airfield systems. The implementation is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2012.
