ADPI to redevelop runways at Taïwan Taoyuan International Airport

ADPI (Aéroports de Paris Ingénierie) has won the contract to redevelop the runways at Taïwan Taoyuan International Airport.

The hub of Taiwanese carriers, China Airlines and EVAAir, it is the 16th busiest airport in the world with 27 million passengers handled in 2012.

ADPI will complete the studies and detailed design for the renovation work to be carried out on the two existing runways and associated taxiways.

Its teams will also work on establishing an additional quick exit lane and extra parking areas, as well as extending the south runway 100 metres west and 350 metres east to reach 3,800 metres.

Following the expansion and redevelopment work, this runway will be able to accommodate wide-body aircraft such as the Airbus A380.

The total cost of this redevelopment, which should be concluded in 2015, is an estimated €150 million.

According to Guillaume Sauvé, CEO of ADPI, said: “This success is testament to the expertise of ADPI in airport design and engineering.

“It marks a new stage of our development in Asia following our success in the call for tender for the extension of the Chongqing airport and the new terminal of the Haikou Meilan airport in China.”
