To cater for city’s long-term air traffic demand, Hong Kong International Airport is developing into a Three-Runway System (3RS) that includes the construction of the Third Runway, modification of the existing North Runway and construction of airport support infrastructure, utilities and facilities.
To support the 3RS implementation, new air navigation service (ANS) equipment and replacement/upgrade of existing ones are required. In light of the complexity and scale of this project, by global opening tendering, the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has engaged the Egis/ADP Ingénierie consortium to provide professional services for ANS equipment implementation.
The technical consultancy and engineering services provided to the CAD by Egis and its partners will include consultancy on procurement, design, safety assessment, cutover and transition of new and upgraded/replaced ANS equipment; as well as on-site technical support/assistance during installation, integration, testing, commissioning cutover, transition and decommissioning as necessary.
Egis Asia-Pacific Aviation director Antoine Bonnaud said, “We’re delighted to have been chosen by the CAD Hong Kong for this important project that is needed to support the implementation of ANS equipment for the Three-Runway System at the Hong Kong International Airport. Leading a consortium with ADP Ingénierie, we have assembled a tailored team of more than 20 engineers and experts who will set up a local system engineering office and deliver in-house support to the CAD.”
Egis has a thirty-year track record of supporting air navigation service providers and providing technical assistance with implementing new ATM systems customised to needs, specific to operational constraints, to users and the local environment.
