BYME Successfully Completes Energy Efficiency and Indoor Environment Improvement Works at Hong Kong International Airport
Hong Kong International Airport is one of the world’s busiest airports, with 60 million passenger trips and over 4 million tonnes of cargo handled in 2013.
BYME has been working there since 2009, delivering A&A and energy efficiency improvement works. Over the past year, BYME has been employed to modify the existing air-conditioning systems in Terminal 1 (T1) to ensure the most comfortable indoor environment can be maintained during the hot peak season. There are a total of 48 nos. of Fixed Link Bridges (FLB) in T1 and each is connected to the aircraft with a pair of Aircraft Loading Bridges (ALB). Each ALB is equipped with a Pre-conditioned Air (PCA) equipment to pre-cool the aircraft and supply cool air to the ALB.
Under two contracts, BYME was responsible for the design of the PCA remote control system, replacement of 48 nos. of PCA and supply air distribution system modification works for 99 nos. of ALB and 11 nos. of FLB.
BYME managed to complete the PCA replacement works three months ahead of schedule and introduced different value engineering and safety enhancement proposals to the project including an innovative PCA mounting solution with tailor-made brackets.
Through this project, BYME has once again confirmed its expertise in fast-track A&A projects conducted within operational and critical sites, such as the Hong Kong International Airport.
