    • Taking to the skies Geneva Airport case study

      Modernizing an airport’s electrical distribution - from parking to departure - without delays

      Challenge

      • Geneva Airport has been growing in size and structure for years.
       
      • As a world-class international airport, with only one runway, Geneva Airport serves 15 million passengers every year, and the numbers are expected to rise to over 25 million by 2030.
       
      • To accommodate its growing demand, Geneva Airport has been upgrading its infrastructure, and renovating its terminals, cargo holds and hangers.
       
      • At the same time, the airport is improving its electrical distribution system. Electrical renovation however, can create disruption.

      • Geneva Airport sought a reliable partner- one that understands the pressures of a global, 24/7 working environment, and one that can deliver trustworthy, innovative solutions in highly sensitive environments.

      • In 2011, Geneva Airport began its exclusive MEGA project (Modernisation Electrical Geneva Airport) together with Schneider Electric.
       
      • This began with a complete renovation and installation of a new medium voltage system- from transformers to distribution equipment to monitoring software

      • The project also introduced low voltage cabinets throughout the site, which enabled airport staff to centralize all energy information and generate accurate energy reports

      • Schneider Electric is improving technology and passenger experience at the Geneva Airport without impacting day-to-day operations
