The work, completed in partnership with the German Honeywell Building Solutions Gmbh in Hamburg, included LED signals for the runway, landing zone, entrances and taxiways.
Schönefeld is located adjacent to the site of the Brandenburg International Airport currently under construction. It will be absorbed into the new hub, which is projected to serve 30 million passengers annually. The runway that OCEM Airfield lit is already operational and is helping Schönefeld accommodate passengers during the expansion.
