KINOLT will once again be present at the African Airport Summit on the 19-20th February in Accra, Ghana. Supporting the rising air transportation needs in Africa, where nearly 100 airport projects are expected to be developed in upcoming years.
The International Civil Aviation Organisation (which issues Standards and Recommended Practices/Policies in support of the civil aviation sector) has defined the secondary/backup power that airports must install to support their critical systems including the maximum switchover time between primary and secondary power supplies.
In CAT II or CAT III conditions or Runway Visual Ranges below 800 metres, the maximum switchover time for most systems is one second. Key systems, such as Instrument Landing, require a completely no-break secondary power source ensuring an uninterruptible secondary power supply. The KINOLT KS airport design fulfils these requirements and the need for a seamless transfer from the utility power supply to the KS secondary power supply, as well as a seamless restoration of service following a transfer. The KINOLT KS offers you a secondary power supply for as long as you require (until the primary power supply is restored) without limitation of operating hours.
When a power outage is not an option, TRUSTED POWER is the foundation on which all critical airport systems should operate, and it is where your partnership with KINOLT begins.
Please come along and meet Bernard Hanssens, our Managing Director, Middle-East and Africa. He will be pleased to share our success stories and talk through future opportunities.
