FEC Heliports announces another two new major projects at this year's Helitech

FEC Heliports are pleased to announce two further major helipad projects, one in Africa and one in the Middle East.

The first of these projects is in Ghana for the design, manufacture and supply of a 21.0m x 18.3m aluminium rooftop elevated helipad for the newly constructed UNICON Hospital in Takoradi. This will be the first aluminium roof-top helipad in Ghana and is being installed to serve the burgeoning Ghanaian oil and mining industries.

The helipad will have a maximum take-off weight capacity of 11.0 tonnes. The design and supply package includes all horizontal structural support steel for the helipad and access walkway, ICAO compliant aviation and obstruction lighting, remote lighting control and meteorology station with SMS messaging, fuel containment and AFFF fire suppression together with an installation team.

The second project, in the United Arab Emirates, is to design, supply and build 3 helipads for use by police and emergency services helicopters. The installations, located at three Dubai Metro main depots, comprise one semi-elevated and two ground bearing aluminium helipads.

All three helipads are 17.5m square, include aviation lighting packages and are designed to accept Agusta Westland 109, 139, 169 and 412 helicopters, operating in compliance with the requirements of GCAA - CAAP 70: HELIPORTS standards and recommended practices. The projected completion date is December 2015.

In addition to its helipad design, manufacture and installation offerings at this year's Helitech, FEC Heliports will be demonstrating its range of heliport equipment, including the FEC HeliLight Portable Battery Powered LED Helipad Lighting System, a Remote Lighting Controller (RLC) and the DeVore Aviation HAPI-PLASI system.
