ADB Safegate to upgrade Tamale Airport in Ghana
07 July 2017
Istanbul Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) has chosen ADB Safegate to upgrade Tamale Airport (TML) in Ghana with efficient CAT II LED airfield ground lighting (AGL). The airport was in need of an upgrade as the existing narrow runway did not support night operations, and the upgrade will therefore help to accelerate the growth and development of the region, setting it up as an economic hub. Yaw Appiah-Danquah, the M&E projects manager at GACL, said: “It was necessary to enable night operations at the Tamale Airport to increase connectivity and economic activity in the region. ADB Safegate was the obvious choice as we share a strong relationship, having partnered on several projects in the past. Equipped with a strong LED portfolio, ADB Safegatge had the best proposal and time plan, delivering in time for Hajj operations in 2016.” The company provided CAT II full LED AGL to power the airport in a turnkey project that included an ASP (Airfield Smart Power) individual lamp control and monitoring system, power distribution system, standby generators, floodlights and approach masts, as well as site management.
