Second substantial order for technology at Berlin Brandenburg International Airport in Germany


Gouda - Imtech (technical services provider in Europe) announces that it has received an order worth dozens of millions of euro for a major part of the electrical engineering solutions at Berlin Brandenburg International Airport (Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg International) in Germany. This is the second substantial order won by Imtech for this airport. Earlier Imtech announced that it had received an order worth dozens of millions of euro for all the energy solutions, the heating, cooling and fire safety, including an innovative heat recovery system that re-uses 70% of all the heat generated in the new terminal building. Imtech is still engaged in negotiations relating to other technical solutions at the airport.

‘We have succeeded in winning three major orders in Germany within a short time,’ said René van der Bruggen, CEO of Imtech. ‘Not just both these orders at Berlin Brandenburg International Airport, but also the ‘green revitalisation’ of the Deutsche Bank head office in Frankfurt. This serves as proof that our unique portfolio (total technical solutions based on the combination of electrical engineering, information and communication technology and mechanical engineering) and scale enable us to maintain or even strengthen our position, even in an unfavourable economic climate. Partly as a result of orders like this, Imtech maintains its forecast – as previously announced – for further growth in 2009.’

High-tech Imtech solutions
The Berlin Brandenburg International Airport will be the result of the expansion and upgrading of the existing airport Berlin-Schönefeld and in time will become the third largest airport in Germany, after Frankfurt and Munich. The initial capacity will be about 20 to 25 million passengers per year and the maximum capacity has been set at about 45 million passengers per year. The central passenger terminal, with its own railway station and thousands of parking spaces, has a surface area of 280,000m² and is 220 metres deep, 180 metres long and 32 metres high. This building is linked to a 720-metre pier giving direct access to dozens of gates for the planes. As a second order within this comprehensive project, Imtech will be responsible for all high and mid-voltage systems and all related electrical engineering solutions. These will make use of innovative technology for electrical switching stations in networks, emergency lighting and lightning protection.

Strong position at German airports
Imtech has a strong position in the German airport market. In recent years, Imtech has successfully implemented the technology in the new terminals at the airports Berlin-Tegel, Dusseldorf and Munich and the new building linking Terminals 1 and 2 of Frankfurt International Airport. All this specific know-how and experience and these references have contributed to the selection of Imtech as technology partner for Berlin Brandenburg International Airport
