Egis proud to sponsor a scholarship with the University of Balamand in Lebanon

Egis announces winning recipient of EUR 5,000 scholarship for an undergraduate aeronautics student of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Balamand in Lebanon.


 

Egis continues to celebrate 50 years in aviation and has announced its third scholarship for a student in an aviation-related degree – this time in the Middle East. Winning recipient this year is Hussam El Omari, a BS Aeronautical Engineering student who will be entering his senior year starting the Fall 2021 semester.   

Egis and the University of Balamand have agreed to award the scholarship on academic merit and performance. Scholarship eligibility was limited to students on low incomes and taking a degree in the Institute of Aeronautics, within the Faculty of Engineering. The EUR 5,000 scholarship will cover the 2020/2021 academic year and take care of the student’s University fees.

Jacques Khoriaty, Egis Middle East Chief Commercial Officer said: “As a leading consultancy and engineering company in aviation, we want to support the next generation of experts and engineers. This scholarship is helping some talented youngsters to follow their ambitions, without it being dependent upon their financial status or backgrounds. It also makes perfect sense for us to support students in the Middle East, where Egis has been working with partners and customers for more than 40 years. We believe in the University of Balamand’s commitment to train highly talented individuals who will contribute to the aviation sector. Mr Hussam El Omari has an impressive academic record and is also involved in many extracurricular activities, including with charity. His profile is perfectly aligned with the spirit and purpose of the Egis scholarship.

Professor Rami J Abboud, Vice President for Internationalisation & Engagement and Dean of Faculty of Engineering at the University of Balamand added: “I’m proud to see one of our top students, Hussam El Omari, receive this prestigious scholarship from Egis. Hussam has, in my opinion, a promising and a bright future ahead of him. He is dedicated, talented, and hard-working, all qualities of an exemplary student. As a university, we are committed to working with well reputed international partners like Egis, to promote the internationalization of our programs and to add value to our students’ experience. I’m very thankful for Egis for this generous scholarship and I hope it will serve as a precursor for future collaboration”.

In 2019 Egis awarded its inaugural scholarship to Nicolas Tigranoff, engineering student at the Ecole Nationale d'Aviation Civile (ENAC), France. In 2020, the scholarship went to Thierry-Picard Assouanou Kouassi, a student of Institut National Polytechnique Félix Houphouët-Boigny (INP-HB) in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.

Egis to project manage the renovation of aeronautical pavements at Strasbourg airport

The project management role spans complete design through to works supervision for the runway, stop ways, taxiways and apron. Egis was chosen for its expertise in aeronautical pavements and airport safety, and ability to support and advise Strasbourg Airport with this large-scale project.


 

The project is part of an overall programme worth €14.5M over five years to renovate Strasbourg-Entzheim airport's pavements and ensure compliance with European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regulations.

Egis services will include: refurbishment of aeronautical pavements, rainwater collection and management, civil engineering of utilities, lighting and aeronautical signage. In addition, Egis will undertake studies on the runway and taxiway strip, the runway end safety area and the precision approach lighting system. Regulatory and administrative assistance related to environmental aspects will also be provided.
As the airport has only one runway, it will be closed to air traffic during works, which of course will need to be carried out in the shortest possible time. This will require a high level of responsiveness and availability from Egis in its role as project manager, as well as excellent coordination with the various services and stakeholders at the airport. Works on other non-runway infrastructure will be undertaken while traffic is maintained.

Egis has recognised expertise in the design and management of works for aeronautical infrastructures, which has already been successfully implemented at airports such as Toulouse-Blagnac, Saint-Nazaire, Carcassonne and Pau in France. On some projects, we had to deliver work with traffic maintained, like in Tahiti-Faa'a airport in French Polynesia and Pointe-Noire in Congo.

Laurent Germain, CEO of Egis, appointed chairman of the MEDEF International France-Ukraine Business Council

“I am very proud to have been appointed chairman of the France-Ukraine Business Council and to be able to continue to pursue the actions initiated by my predecessor, Nicolas Jachiet, who held this position since 2017.


 

Ukraine occupies a special position in the international development of the Egis group, as it constitutes our regional pivot for our activities in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. In the space of 25 years, we have become a leading player in the road and railway transport markets in Ukraine. We wish to expand this position to all our specialities, most notably by supporting the substantial investment planned by France in infrastructure. We are also actively monitoring the national prospects for the development of road and airport concessions and we intend to develop further in the energy field for the benefit of the whole region. In fact, our Kiev office will be our base from which, alongside our partner EDF, we will soon be leading the project to modernise the Uch-Kurgan hydroelectric power plant in Kyrgyzstan. This project is absolutely essential for regional energy security and to reduce carbon emissions in Central Asia. Harnessing our experience in the region, I look forward to accompanying and supporting the development of economic partnerships and cooperation between France and Ukraine,” comments Laurent Germain.

MEDEF International, the leading French private sector business network operating worldwide, conducts collective actions through its France-Ukraine Business Council to promote French solutions on the Ukrainian market. MEDEF International has been active in Ukraine since 1991, the year in which contacts were established with the country’s new political, economic and business leaders. MEDEF International, alongside the French and Ukrainian authorities, accompanies and supports the development of economic and industrial partnerships and cooperation based on areas of complementarity and shared interests and which deliver successful results on the Ukrainian market. MEDEF International has led 12 French company missions in Ukraine and welcomed around 50 public and private decision-makers. Since 2010, it has been a member of the France-Ukraine joint commission.

Laurent Germain began his career at the French Ministry of Economy and Finance. In 2004 he became Adviser to the Minister for Research, Mr. François d’Aubert, in charge of budgetary affairs. In 2005 he was appointed Chief Financial Officer of the French National Centre of Space Studies (CNES). He also chaired the board of CLS, a subsidiary of CNES. In 2014 he joined Segula Technologies, a global engineering and technology consulting group, as CEO. He has been CEO of Egis since July 2020.

An alumnus of Sciences Po Paris, Laurent Germain holds degrees from the ESSEC business school and the Ecole Nationale d’Administration (2000 cohort).

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

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.

New Egis white paper examines infrastructure implications of Urban Air Mobility

Drones are already being used for everything from surveying to asset management. In the future, those uses will extend to passenger journeys using electrically-powered aircraft that can take off and land vertically, giving rise to the concept of Urban Air Mobility (UAM). But how will UAM be integrated into the fabric of a city? And what needs to be done to manage that integration safely and sustainably? These questions are addressed in a new 60-page white paper from construction, engineering and mobility services group - Egis.


 

skycities, skyways, skytaxis: dream or destiny? examines the state of UAM today: what is driving it, where the money is and what still needs to be addressed. It then presents a vision for UAM as an integrated form of future transport, from the perspective of hypothetical characters living in two different UAM-enables cities in 2035: first a modern city, akin to Shenzhen in China, where growth is rapid and new infrastructure is emerging out of nothing; second, an old city, akin to Paris, where UAM adds another dimension to an already mature and complex urban fabric. The paper then considers the infrastructure needed and preparation aspects for urban planners, infrastructure providers, operators and regulators.

Commenting on the publication, Egis Group CEO Laurent Germain said: “I want to thank the many colleagues who contributed to this paper. It was a true collaborative effort, drawing on the skills and expertise of our architects, city and mobility experts, as well as aviation, rail, operations and consulting teams in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. UAM has received a lot of press recently, but Egis is one of the few organisations that are able to help solve the challenges of future mobility, including the digital and physical infrastructure aspects of integrating UAM into the urban environment. Our understanding of cities, transport, infrastructure and operations give us a wide (and possibly unique) range of perspectives from which to comment.  We hope that this paper gets people talking and thinking about the important questions that need to be answered, for the UAM dream to become a positive reality.”
