Egis to support provision of new and upgrade/replacement of air navigation equipment for Hong Kong’s Three-Runway System

05/18/2021

To cater for city’s long-term air traffic demand, Hong Kong International Airport is developing into  a  Three-Runway  System  (3RS)  that  includes  the  construction  of  the  Third  Runway, modification of the  existing North Runway and construction of  airport  support infrastructure, utilities and facilities.

To support the 3RS implementation, new air navigation service (ANS) equipment and replacement/upgrade of existing ones are required.  In light of the complexity and scale of this project, by global opening tendering, the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has engaged the Egis/ADP Ingénierie consortium to provide professional services for ANS equipment implementation.

The technical consultancy and engineering services provided to the CAD by Egis and its partners will include  consultancy  on  procurement,  design,  safety  assessment,  cutover  and  transition  of  new  and upgraded/replaced ANS equipment; as well as on-site technical support/assistance during installation, integration, testing, commissioning cutover, transition and decommissioning as necessary.

Egis Asia-Pacific Aviation director Antoine Bonnaud said, “We’re delighted to have been chosen by the CAD  Hong  Kong  for  this  important  project  that  is  needed  to  support  the  implementation  of  ANS equipment for the Three-Runway System at the Hong Kong International Airport. Leading a consortium with ADP Ingénierie, we have assembled a tailored team of more than 20 engineers and experts who will set up a local system engineering office and deliver in-house support to the CAD.”

Egis has a thirty-year track record of supporting air navigation service providers and providing technical assistance with implementing new ATM systems customised to needs, specific to operational constraints, to users and the local environment.
