Sharjah International Airport opened a new Dh500 million runway on Wednesday, 22 October. ADB SAFEGATE was key in the implementation of this project, delivering turnkey project management including design, supply, installation, commissioning and training. Safegate Group lighting, control systems and Instrument Landing System (ILS) navigation-aids were installed. The runway is now equipped to receive large aircraft and new generations of aircraft, including the Boeing 747-800, Airbus A380, and freight planes such as the AN124 and AN225. The runway spans 4,060 meters and is 60 meters wide. It runs parallel to the former runway and includes two taxiways and eight connecting corridors.
Safegate Group is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed the acquisition of Liberty Airport Systems Inc., the North American leader in integrated airfield lighting power and control solutions.
ADB SAFEGATE’s turnkey project at Macedonia’s Skopje Airport, one of the biggest international airports in the Balkans, demonstrates the significant improvements in reliability and safety offered by the company’s latest generation airfield lighting control system (ALCS) and AGLAS, individual light control and monitoring systems (ILCMS).

Nice International Airport is one of the busiest airports in France with 10 million passengers per year. Nice International Airport is partly built on land reclaimed from the sea and has two parallel runways very close to each other. An ASP-SafeControl system has recently been implemented at the airport to improve operations such as taxiway selection, direction selection and park entry pre-selection. Continue reading
Gothenburg-Landvetter Airport in Sweden was one of the very first airports to use individual control and monitoring of airfield lighting. Their very first system is still in operation but has over the years gradually been extended to include all airfield lighting at the airport: taxiway, stop bars and sensor systems. Continue reading
Hobart International Airport is one of the top ten busiest airports in Australia, is curfew-free and has had considerable growth over the past ten years. In 2012, the airport undertook a major runway and taxiway resurfacing project which included the replacement of the entire airfield lighting system including a new control system and the construction of a new Airfield Lighting Equipment Room (ALER). ADB SAFEGATE provides intelligent LED airfield lighting solutions to realize the energy potential of LED technologies in the airfield environment.

ADB SAFEGATE’s ASP-SafeControl solution has been installed as part of the runway guard light project at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas. This project is a key component of Houston’s strategy to prevent runway incursions that can endanger aircraft and ground vehicles. The contractor for the runway guard light project selected Safegate Group’s ASP-SafeControl system, largely because of its nearly universal compatibility with their own components such as regulators, light fixtures and the control system. Equally important was the successful track record of the ASP-SafeControl system at dozens of airports around the world under all kinds of airfield conditions. Continue reading
