The Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) has made unbelievable progress in the 20 years since it started operations. Today, it is one of the busiest international hubs of mainland China, ranking 9th in terms of passenger traffic globally. The airport is one of the pioneer airports in China to use ADB SAFEGATE Solutions’ technologies. Pudong satellite terminal  is now put into operation with 90 ADB SAFEGATE Safedock T1 installed  to help  operational burden at the airport.

The world’s biggest Satellite Hall at Shanghai Pudong Airport started  operation on September 16.

On September the 16th a new satellite terminal, believed to be world’s largest of its kind, was put into operation at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport.  The new operation of the Satellite Hall helps the airport to meet the needs of the increasing number of air passengers and improves efficiency in flight transfers. This third phase of the expansion of the Airport began already in December 2015 and have lasted for over three years. The construction project included the terminal area, the flight area, the support facilities and municipal infrastructure.

For quite some time, the Chinese market has been the largest single country market of ADB SAFEGATE ´s A-VDGS solutions. At Shanghai Pudong International Airport we provided the airport with 90 Safedock T1 to equip the satellite terminal in one of the the biggest single A-VDGS-projects in China. ADB SAFEGATE supplied, delivered, installed, tested and commissioned the Safedock T1 A-VDGS and an apron management system.
