Electrical contract awarded for airport redevelopment
Published: 9 April 2019 - Carly Wills
Dyer & Butler Electrical has won a mechanical and electrical contract as part of the development of London City Airport.
Part of a wider development programme, the works will facilitate the airport’s anticipated increase to over 100,000 annual scheduled aircraft movements and the accompanying six million passenger journeys.
The initial part of the project requires the company to reconfigure four of the existing aircraft stands, including the installation of new, low-voltage, fixed ground power and facilities for ground power support equipment. Once the new taxiway has been constructed, Dyer & Butler Electrical will provide the low voltage, fixed ground power and ground power support equipment chargers for a further eight stands.
The company will also install yellow pedestrian barriers and protection barriers to the south side of the taxiway. During the same period, briefing shelters will be installed to give protection to those working outside; while low-voltage LED lighting will be installed where possible across the project in order to help London City Airport achieve its environmental objectives. All of the LED lighting will be fully compliant with the UK Civil Aviation Authorities’ standard CAP 168 for lighting levels using LEDs.
Dyer & Butler aviation director, Mark Foster, comments: “We are thrilled to have been awarded this contract and look forward to being part of the wider redevelopment of London City Airport.”
The mechanical and electrical part of the major contract award will run through to the end of September 2021.
