As part of their strategy against climate change, the International Airport Operator (OPAIN) was looking for a solution to mitigate the impact of their activities and reduce their carbon footprint. Their maintenance department, together with other areas of the airport, constantly adopt measures aimed at increasing the efficiency of the airport’s infrastructure, which covers an area of approximately 6.9 km².
The main aim of their initiative was to retrofit interior luminaires whilst making sure lighting has the least possible negative impact. Given that terminals are 24/7 transit points, the priority was to offer greater visual comfort for passengers and better workspaces for the entire airport workforce.
For outdoor lighting, the challenge was to implement the latest LED technology with a cloud-based system that allowed them to manage operations and maintenance remotely with maximum reliability and safeguards.
El Dorado is the first project of its kind in Latin America to implement the latest innovation in lighting both by using 3D printed luminaires and Interact City systems to remotely manage exterior lights. Thus becoming a benchmark for sustainable operation and maintenance at the highest level of an infrastructure as complex and large as an airport of these characteristics.
