Posted 27 June 2017 · Add Comment

ADB Safegate has installed the runway lights at Ghana's Tamale Airport Upgrades airport using CAT II LED airfield ground lighting to enable night operations.

Istanbul Ghana Airport Company (GACL) chose ADB SAFEGATE to upgrade the Tamale Airport with efficient CAT II LED airfield ground lighting (AGL).

The airport was in dire need of an upgrade as the existing narrow runway did not support night operations. The upgrade will help accelerate growth and development of the region, setting it up as an economic hub.

“It was necessary to enable night operations at the Tamale Airport to increase connectivity and economic activity in the region. ADB Safegate was the obvious choice as we share a strong relationship, having partnered on several projects in the past.  Equipped with a strong LED portfolio, ADB Safgate had the best proposal and time plan, delivering in time for Hajj operations in 2016,” said Yaw Appiah-Danquah, Projects Manager (M&E), GACL.

ADB Safegate provided CAT II full LED AGL to power the Tamale Airport in a turnkey project that included an ASP (Airfield Smart Power) individual lamp control and monitoring system, power distribution system, standby generators, floodlights and approach masts as well as site management.

Alexander Herring, director of sales Africa, ADB Safegate said: “We have a strong presence in Ghana having already worked with GACL at Ac`cra Kotoka International Airport, Kumasi Airport and Takoradi Airport. Equipped with ADB Safegate airfield ground lighting, the Tamale Airport will experience increased throughput, longer operational hours and most importantly night time operations. Our solutions not only help save energy and power consumption, but also enhance safety, making Tamale one of the key airports in Ghana!”
