Singapore Changi Airport has tapped Honeywell for a multi-year, multi-million-dollar contract for the implementation of a new airfield ground lighting control and monitoring system, Honeywell says. The airport, which Honeywell says is southeast Asia’s busiest, is currently in the midst of expansion efforts.
The Honeywell Individual Lamp Control and Monitoring System would cover all three runways — the third of which is currently under development — and associated taxiways, taxi lanes and apron lighting. Honeywell would also support facility control and management. The system would allow the airport to get real-time information on approach and runway lighting lamp failures, including the exact location of those failures.
"Since its opening in 1981, Changi Airport has been recognized for ensuring safety in its airfield," says Koh Ming Sue, managing director of Engineering and Development for Changi Airport Group. "The new Honeywell airfield lighting control and monitoring system serves as an important cog in our broader expansion plans to help upkeep our safety and efficiency performance even as air traffic demand grows beyond the capacity of our existing two runways."
