Istanbul New Airport to boast intelligent airfield

ADB SAFEGATE is to provide 35,000 intelligent LED airfield runway and taxiway lights and a host of visual aids for Istanbul New Airport, which is set to open in late 2018 and is expected to eventually become the world’s biggest gateway handling in excess of 200 million passengers yearly.

In addition to the world’s biggest installation of airfield ground lighting (AGL), ADB SAFEGATE will also supply and commission all visual aids including transistor regulators, transformers, approach solutions (flashers, PAPI, approach lighting), energy efficient power solutions and mounting equipment.

Its solution will equip the taxiway system with full switching ability and the addition of a single and double channel Individual Light Control and Monitoring System (ILCMS).

With intelligence built into each light fixture, the ILCMS will control the lights individually or by defined segments, rather than selected circuits, providing large gains in power savings and making maintenance easier and more cost effective.

The state-of-the-art intelligent lighting will also allow increased flexibility in guidance and routing.

The contract, with airport operator IGA, was signed in September 2016 and will lead to deliveries throughout this year and into 2018.

“Innovation, efficiency and safety are imperative to ensure that the airport is congestion-free and traffic flows smoothly, even in adverse conditions,” said Yusuf Akçayoğlu, CEO, İGA Airports Construction.

 “With ADB SAFEGATE working closely with us right from the design review to implementation, we know that together we can truly deliver seamless and future-proof operations.”
