Lima Airport to benefit from ‘key upgrades’ with $1.6b expansion project

Peru’s Lima Airport is set to benefit from a US$1.6b expansion project that will see the introduction of “key upgrades”, in a bid by the airport to double its capacity.

ADB SAFEGATE and Inti Punku Consortium have teamed up to deliver the expansion of the Peruvian airport, which will see upgrades made to airport operational systems, airfield ground lighting, docking guidance and apron management technologies.

Upgrades to the airport’s existing operational database, integration broker and resource management systems are also planned.

Under this new contract, ADB SAFEGATE said it will deliver its latest Safedock FleX Advanced Visual Docking Guidance Systems (A-VDGS) and AiPRON Manager.

Nick Haines, vice president of the Americas at ADB SAFEGATE, said: “We are thrilled to provide our latest technology for the Lima Airport Expansion Project.

“The new A-VDGS and AiPRON Manager will set the airport up for future advances in intelligent apron management and help deliver better control, safety, and efficiency to deliver an even better experience for their airline partners and passengers.”

ADB SAFEGATE said the Safedock FleX and AiPRON Manager will be essential to providing greater control over the new apron and five-story terminal building expected to open in 2025, allowing the airport to experience the benefits of automated, intelligent apron management and manage growth efficiently.

The Safedock FleX was introduced by ADB SAFEGATE in 2022 and offers advancements in A-VDGS technology for safer, smoother aircraft parking, even in low visibility. The A-VDGS also act as intelligent sensors at the gate, uniquely capable of collecting and sharing data to further improve apron operations.

The web based AiPRON Manager constantly monitors the A-VDGS and other connected apron equipment and systems and provides stakeholders with real-time data and alerts to potential issues before an aircraft arrives.

ADB SAFEGATE provides integrated solutions that raise efficiency, improve safety, boost environmental sustainability and reduce operational costs for airports, airlines and ANSPs. The company works with airports and airlines to solve operational bottlenecks.

Solutions encompass airfield lighting, power and control systems, smart airport and tower software solutions, docking automation and intelligent apron management, as well as aftermarket services.
