Avionics Group is proud to announce award of 3 contracts relating to the airfield ground lighting infrastructure at Hong Kong’s Chek Lap Kok Airport.
We will be responsible for the supply and installation of nearly 7000 light positions, installing over 110kms of conduit connecting up the runway, taxiway and apron lighting systems.
The 3RS project is more than a new runway. Its scale is almost equivalent to building a new airport next to the existing one. It involves:
Reclamation of approximately 650 hectares of land north of the existing airport island (equivalent to 34 Victoria Parks, or 100 artificial islands for the New Wing of Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre). Non-dredge methods, including deep cement mixing technique will be used for reclamation.
Building the Third Runway Passenger Building with more than 280,000 square metres of floor area, a total of 57 new parking positions (frontal: 34, remote: 23) and an apron.
Building a 3,800-metre-long new runway and its supporting taxiway systems. The existing north runway will also be reconfigured.
Building a 2,600-metre-long new Automated People Mover (APM) system connecting Terminal 2 with the new passenger building. This new APM system travels at a top speed of 80km/h and would take 2.5 minutes to travel from Terminal 2 to the new passenger building. It can transport up to 10,800 passengers per hour.
Building a new Baggage Handling System (BHS) linking Terminal 2 with the new passenger building with a baggage transport speed of 7 to 10m/sec.
Expansion of the existing Terminal 2 to provide arrivals, departures and full-fledged passenger services.
Construction of other associated airport support infrastructure, road network and transportation facilities.
Upon the completion of the 3RS, HKIA will be able to serve 30 million additional passengers annually as forecasted in the HKIA Master Plan 2030. The passenger building facilities of the 3RS could be further expanded if necessary.
Our specialist team of airfield ground lighting and construction experts led by Shane Webb are currently mobilising on-site.
In November 2020 we received our first shipment from Australia with over 40 tons of plant and equipment ensuring we maximise our site performance and capabilities.
