Abu Dhabi International Airport is undertaking one of its most ambitious expansion projects, where ADB Group has been selected as the main contractor. The airfield will be redesigned after a survey of the existing airside infrastructure.
ADB will also make improvements to the airport’s AGL infrastructure including lighting, power, control, and surface guidance systems. The scope of the agreement between ADAC and ADB covers three phases:
- Extensive airfield survey of air navigation and visual aids, consult with the airport operations and management on how to re-use or improve the setup
- Design and upgrade of the AGL, control and monitoring, communication systems and integration of a system to automate ground movement
- Maintenance services. ADB will also ensure the infrastructure of the airport’s upcoming midfield terminal is integrated in this expansion.
ADB will install its AGLAS airfield light control and monitoring system, and integrate an A-SMGCS Level 2 and Level 4 system for smoother ground movement. The system will support air traffic control and pilots in low visibility conditions and improve airfield safety.
