Honeywell Announces Deal to Light Up Singapore Airport

By Ken Briodagh February 16, 2017

Honeywell has announced a multi-million dollar, multi-year contract to implement a new airfield ground lighting control and monitoring system at Singapore Changi Airport, Southeast Asia’s busiest hub and one of the most frequented airports in the world. The Honeywell system will help Changi Airport safely and efficiently accommodate aircraft traffic.

The project is part of ongoing expansion efforts at the Airport, which include the development of a three-runway system. The new lighting system will cover all three runways and associated taxiways, taxi lanes and apron lighting, which will be controlled by Honeywell’s Individual Lamp Control and Monitoring System. This will allow the airport to get real-time information on approach and runway lighting lamp failures, including precise locations for faster repair response times.

“Since its opening in 1981, Changi Airport has been recognized for ensuring safety in its airfield,” said Koh Ming Sue, managing director, engineering & development, 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.”

Lighting installations for approaches, runways, taxiways, and aprons enable pilots to navigate the complex surface layouts of modern airports. Honeywell’s computerized control and monitoring system facilitates the operation and observation of these lighting installations and provides workstations for tower and technical personnel to simplify daily operational processes and optimize maintenance activities.

“We are excited to have been chosen by Changi Airport Group and look forward to working with them to maintain the airport’s high safety and efficiency record,” said Raghu Seelamonthula, market director, Airport Systems, Honeywell Building Solutions. “Airfield ground lighting, as a visual aid for landing and taxiing, is an important element of an airport’s equipment. Honeywell’s airfield lighting control and monitoring have proven to be highly reliable with equally high availability rates in operations throughout the globe.”
