CEDD Success Stories
The CEDD airfield ground lighting technology is now operational in 8 airfields around the world, and being installed in 4 more airports in 2023. Read about the success stories of these airfields via the links below.
Memphis International Airport, USA
The world’s most advanced de-icing system built together with TKH’s CEDD airfield light technology. The integrated system, including more than 1,200 CEDD fixtures, enables Memphis Airport to realize operational efficiencies in its de-icing facilities.
Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport, Turkey (in progress)
To increase the hourly capacity from 40 to 80 aircraft movements, Sabiha Gökçen Airport will expand its airfield with a second runway, whereby 7,000 taxiway and other addressable light fixtures will be provided in CEDD AGL technology.
Al Ula Airport, Saudi Arabia
In November 2022, a new hangar for private aircraft was inaugurated at AlUla Airport in Saudi Arabia. The taxiways from and to the hangar are equipped with CEDD airfield lights. The lead time of the AGL project was less than a month.
Morelia International Airport, Mexico
For the replacement of the approach lights, the airport has chosen for CEDD AGL technology. With this choice, Morelia is the first airport in Mexico with a CEDD system. The lights have been installed and commissioned in October 2022.
Amsterdam Lelystad Airport, The Netherlands
This CAT I airport is part of the Schiphol Group, and the most important airport in The Netherlands for general aviation. Lelystad Airport is fully equipped with CEDD AGL technology (1,060 fixtures) and operational since 2019.
Vancouver International Airport, Canada
For Vancouver Airport, the main target to install CEDD was to have fast and reliable communication on the stop bars, controlled from the existing ALCMS. The system was installed on a Runway End Safety Area.
Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport, The Netherlands
The Helispot at Schiphol Airport was one of the CEDD pilot projects that were executed in 2016. In 2020 Schiphol Airport decided to continue with CEDD airfield ground lighting technology for the renewed Helispot.
Marseille Provence International Airport, France
On the airport in Marseille, a CEDD AGL installation was done for taxiway no-entry bars. The installation is a combination of inset and elevated stop bar lights. Conventional systems gave long feedback from stop bars. The fast response (< 1 s) of the CEDD technology make the airport operations faster and safer.
Geneva International Airport, Switzerland
In May 2018, a CEDD AGL system was installed on a new apron in the North-East area of Geneva International Airport. Since its installation there has been no maintenance required to any part of the system.
