atg airports is delighted to have been awarded work on the Runways Rehabilitation Project at London Heathrow Airport by Morgan Sindall. This prestigious project commenced in April 2013, with completion date due by September 2014. Work due to be undertaken by atg airports includes installation of runway LED (Light Emitting Diodes) lighting fixtures on both North and South Runways including the recently refurbished runway circuits and rapid exit taxiways.

The scope of work involves the replacement of existing halogen luminaires with LEDs across the two main runways, including Runway Centreline, Runway Edge, Threshold, Runway End and Touchdown Zones (TDZ). The existing halogen centreline lighting will also be replaced with LED units on the Runway Rapid Exit Taxiways.

Supplying products and services since 1995, this new installation project represents a major development in the long-standing relationship between atg airports and London Heathrow, one of world’s busiest international airports.

Throughout the last 18 years, atg airports has provided products and services to Heathrow including Constant Current Regulators, Substation Test and Inspection Services as well as Airside Installation works. An important aspect of this new project includes upgrades to the installed atg airports SMART control system. This SMART Control System is one of atg’s largest bespoke designs, with atg airports’ staff constantly available on-site to provide support and maintenance to London Heathrow.

Working with Morgan Sindall, a leading UK construction, infrastructure and design business, this major project awarded in January 2013 cements a much respected working relationship between the two airside suppliers. Tony Heron – Project Manager for Morgan Sindall commented: “We are looking forward to working with atg airports’ installation team on this prestigious and important project”.
