Coromatic ensures continuous operations at Sweden’s major airports
Coromatic, the leading provider of critical facilities solutions, will deliver uninterrupted power to Swedavia’s airports in Sweden for a period of five years. This has been confirmed now that Coromatic has been awarded a framework agreement for the delivery of turnkey UPS (uninterruptible power supply) systems. The UPS systems will ensure a continuous, reliable supply of electricity in the event of a power failure, for example, which is critical for preventing disruptions to air traffic.
Swedavia is owned by the Swedish state and owns, operates and develops the national network of airports in Sweden – comprising ten airports from Malmö in the south to Kiruna in the north. In 2017, a total of 41.9 million passengers traveled to or from Swedavia’s airports, of which the largest are Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Gothenburg Landvetter Airport.
Create the accessibility
The company’s role is to create the accessibility that Sweden requires to facilitate travel, business and meetings. Ensuring continuous operations in the event of a power failure, for example, is critical to Swedavia’s ability to fulfill its role. This is one of the reasons why Swedavia has now, as one of the first state-owned companies in Sweden, procured UPS systems under a separate Group contract.
Keep air traffic up and running
“To keep air traffic up and running, we must have a stable and reliable power supply, to ensure that arrival and departure facilities are functional, for example, and that the runway lights are working,” says Håkan Pedersen, Head of the Electricity Unit at Swedavia Energy. “I am, therefore, extremely gratified that we have now secured Coromatic’s services to provide this critical infrastructure. The company has solid experience in the reliable and continuous operation of critical infrastructure and, in addition, was also the company that best met our specifications for a turnkey solution.”
Completely new UPS
Under the five-year contract, Coromatic will deliver completely new UPS units and replace end-of-life modules. Coromatic will deliver the solution as pre-configured modular and energy-efficient systems, including UPS units, valve-regulated battery packs, low-voltage switchgear, enclosed cabinets and the cabling work. A modular solution simplifies service, makes it easy to add more UPS units if required and to replace faulty units without disrupting operations.
“We are naturally very honored that Coromatic once again holds a key role in the continued operation of such critical infrastructure represented by airports,” says Robin Carlsson, Head of Critical Power at Coromatic. “By procuring UPS systems separately, Swedavia is demonstrating the importance of ensuring uninterrupted power for its operations, which is becoming increasingly common, especially in the public sector.”
