Project Summary

Construct an Aircraft Deicing Pad and connecting Taxiways from Runway 34R with Airfield Lighting System at Salt Lake City International Airport.

Skyline’s Project Scope

Construct new 5,000 Volt (5kV) airfield lighting system on new concrete pavement taxiways, new concrete pavement deicing pad existing asphalt pavement & concrete pavement taxiways, and existing asphalt pavement runway. This also included installing five new valve diversion control and monitoring vaults in the Airfield in-field to recover and collect glycol used to de-ice aircraft and pumping it to the Glycol Recovery Plant 3 miles away. Provide new utility power service connection from the power utility (Rocky Mountain Power) and airfield lighting control system modifications. We were also responsible for the relocation of Security Access Gates 11 and 13 which are major arteries accessing the SIDA controlled secure areas on the airfield from public roadways.

Project Goals/Objectives

  • No lost time accidents during 3-year project – Achieved
  • Airport operations continued as normal during construction – Achieved
  • Project completed per plans and specifications, under budget – Achieved

Systems/Project Specifications

  • Total Project $28M, Electrical $5.6M
  • Heavy Industrial/Civil
  • Both FAA & AIA Specification Components
  • Operating Commercial Airport
  • High Security Areas (SIDA)
  • 5kV Project
  • Bonded
  • 25th Busiest Airport in the United States

Key Features of Project

  • 5kv Airfield Lighting Power and Control Distribution System
  • 95 miles of new power and communication cable Installed
  • 45 miles of new 5,000 Volt L-824C Power Cable Installed
  • 2.5 miles of new ductbanks ranging from 2-4″ conduits to 24-4” conduits
  • 65 new manholes and precast concrete structures
  • 9 new 5kV constant current regulators and controls
  • 830 new L-868 in-pavement lighting base cans and extensions
  • 950 new L-852 taxiway in-pavement centerline lights
  • 200 new L-861 elevated edge lights
  • 25 new L-858 lighted airfield guidance signs
  • 5 new glycol diversion control and monitoring vaults
  • 2 new complete Security SIDA Access Gates including inspection canopy and guardhouse

Project Summary

Design & Construct new 5kV Airfield Lighting Power & Control System at Hill Air Force Base.

Skyline’s Project Scope

Design and construct new airfield lighting power and control system replacing the existing Airfield Lighting Control System with a new Power & Control System. We re-designed the existing control and 5kV power distribution system and reduced the number of constant current regulators (CCR’s) from 34 to 24 with new high efficiency CCR’s; controlling all taxiways, aprons, nav-aides, and the runway lighting and power circuits. Also provided was a four location control interface which enables the airfield operator the capability to control the airfield power distribution and lighting system from multiple locations. This project was achieved keeping the airfield operational during the transition, requiring extensive planning, engineering, and experience with complex airfield lighting projects.

Project Goals/Objectives:

  • Base/Airfield operations continued as normal during construction – Achieved
  • Project Completed on time and on budget – Achieved
  • Improve airfield lighting functionality & power consumption with new design – Achieved

Systems/Project Specifications

  • Total Electrical Project $ 1M
  • Heavy Industrial/Civil
  • MIL-SPEC
  • Operating Airbase / High Security Area / Flightline Clearances
  • 5kV Project

Key Features of Project

  • Complete System Audit & Design
  • Major Modifications to Existing Airfield Lighting Vault
  • Installed 24 new 5kV Constant Current Regulators
  • Reconfigured 34 existing airfield lighting circuits
  • Maintained normal base and flight operations throughout construction
  • Enabled complete control of airfield lighting and navigational aids from multiple locations
A contract with Skyline Electric Company is an assurance of high quality work.
