ADB Safegate is to deliver its latest Airfield 4.0 lighting technology to Western Sydney International (WSI) Airport, a greenfield hub currently under construction.

As the turnkey provider, ADB Safegate’s scope includes the design, manufacturing, supply, installation, commissioning, and support of the airfield lighting solution and is scheduled for completion by May 2024. This is the largest airfield lighting contract in ADB Safegate Australia’s history

The company will deliver a complete airfield ground lighting (AGL) solution, including approach, runway and taxiway integrated with its new LINC 360 Individual Light Control and Monitoring System (ILCMS). The ILCMS will be integrated into air navigation service provider Airservices Australia’s Integrated Tower Automation Suite (INTAS) platform. In addition to precise control of individual fixtures, LINC 360 will offer two-way data transmittal between airfield assets enabling 360°, real-time monitoring of the airfield creating actionable insights for air traffic controllers and maintenance. LED Axon lights with built-in sensors capture and share data to facilitate predictive airport operations and provide better control under challenging conditions.

ADB Safegate was subcontracted the airfield lighting component of the Western Sydney Airport project by the contractor, a joint venture between CPB and Acciona.
