Italian air navigation services provider ENAV said it has been awarded a 2 million euro contract by the Libyan Civil Aviation Authority for the modernization of equipment in the control tower at Tripoli International Airport.
Under the contract, ENAV will deliver and deploy three new workstations for air traffic controllers.
“The contract covers the supply and installation of three new workstations for Air Traffic Controllers, the integration and deployment of ground-air-ground and ground-ground communication systems, as well as of the infrastructure for data and wireless networks.” ENAV said in a press statement.
The company will also be responsible for the integration and deployment of ground-air-ground and ground-ground communication systems, as well as the infrastructure for data and wireless networks.
“Operating in Libya has a strategic importance for ENAV. In fact, the southern part of the Italian airspace borders on the Libyan airspace, which is presently subject to strong limitations for commercial air traffic.” ENAV CEO Roberta Neri stated.
“The new control tower of Mitiga airport is to be completed in March, so by the end of next year, both airports will be fully operational also thanks to our support.” She added.
The contract, which has an option for the supply and installation of meteorological technology components for an additional 900,000 euro, is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
ENAV is helping to construct the new control tower and the technical building of Mitiga International Airport, which is the only operational airport in Tripoli.
