BRUSSELS, BELGIUM. By investing in the long-term benefits of LED AFL, Brussels Airport is truly modernizing its airfield. The airport is now taking the first step towards Follow the Greens efficiency and is one of the airports on the list of Europe’s 25 largest airports subject to the SESAR program. Safegate Group is proud to take part in preparing airports for the air traffic demands and challenges of the future.
With an all LED runway and approach, Brussels Airport will soon join the growing community of airports benefiting from high intensity application LED airfield lighting (AFL) technology. Safegate Group is contributing to the airport’s renovation project that will transition its 3 runways and approaches to LED AFL. Brussels Airport will be the first major airport in Europe to have both runway and approach lighting entirely in LED.
Safegate Group, as the partner for AFL in this renovation project, will replace the current halogen lights with in total 2,780 SafeLED lights over the course of this undertaking. Out of those, 976 SafeLED lights will be installed in runway 25L/07R. This is the first runway in the project and is expected to be concluded September 2015. To minimize the impact on the neighboring community surrounding this international airport, work will focus on one runway per year.
By investing in the long-term benefits of LED AFL, Brussels Airport is truly modernizing its airfield. This tried and tested technology has matured since its entry in the airport industry. The advantages in cost-reduction in terms of maintenance and energy-savings have been confirmed by airports in Brisbane, Stockholm and Sarajevo to name just a few. Indeed, LED AFL has proved its merit.
