Turnkey contractor Perkasa Jauhari has implemented a solution from energy management specialist Schneider Electric at the air traffic control tower at the second Kuala Lumpur International Airport (klia2) to maintain mission critical equipment running at optimal.
Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) managing director, Datuk Badlisham bin Ghazali, said: "The implementation of Schneider Electric's Uniflair Precision Air Conditioning solutions is in line with MAHB's commitment to investing in state-of-the-art technologies to make our international airports not only world-class but energy efficient too."
"We believe in working with contractors and vendors, like Perkasa Jauhari and Schneider Electric who share our vision," said Badlisham, adding that the air traffic control tower, which relied on real-time data and computing infrastructure, played a critical role in the operations of a busy airport.
Patrick Chong, director of Perkasa Jauhari, said, "We not only completed the world's tallest air traffic control tower [141.3 metre] ahead of schedule, but delivered an energy efficient project. I was very impressed with Schneider Electric's speed and efficiency in completing the project."
"We are proud to have been chosen for this project," said Schneider Electric Malaysia business vice president, Serge Noraz. "We worked under very tight deadlines and very unique design needs. klia2 now joins other leading airports in the world, which use energy efficient solutions from Schneider Electric to ensure their mission critical equipment operates optimally."
He added that a mission critical operation like air traffic control cannot afford any compromise to its availability, reliability and overall performance. "The Uniflair by Schneider Electric solution uses leading precision air-conditioning technologies to maintain temperature and humidity conditions within extremely tight tolerances, even when the heat load fluctuates."
