ADB Safegate to create intelligent airfield solutions for Istanbul New Airport
11 May 2017
ADB Safegate has been chosen to create intelligent airfield solutions for Istanbul New Airport in Turkey. 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 optimise capacity. Christian Onselaere, CEO, at ADB Safegate, said: “Our approach ... considers how each airport can maximise 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 realise 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.
