Cairo International Airport selects OCEM Airfield Technology for its move to LED Airfield Ground Lighting

Africa’s second busiest airport Cairo Airport International confided OCEM Airfield Technology with a turnkey project to make the move to LED for its  central runway (05C23C) and the taxiways that connect to the runway. The runway is the most busiest runway at the airport and operates in Cat III.


This key turnkey project was awarded to OCEM Airfield Ground Lighting because of its leading LED portfolio of lights and signs and includes the three-phase constant current regulator UR3000, a Constant Current Regulator of the newest generation.

OCEM also re-engineered the control system and supplied all solutions for the airport to perform the most cost efficient and safety critical maintenance possible as part of OCEM’s full services offering.

OCEM managed all phases from design to the installation with local provider TBFC to managing the full project, respecting all deadlines and guaranteeing the highest quality delivery.

As part of the conversion to OCEM Airfield Technology, products like the LERE or OCEM’s Led Elevated Runway Edge and Threshold/End Light , LIRC or Led Inset Runway Centreline and Rapid Exit Taxiway Indicator Light (R.E.T.I.L.) and LIMS or OCEM’s Led Luminous Guidance Sign – one of the thinnest and strongest LED signs on the market – were selected. They will all be powered with the three-phase constant current regulators, the series UR3000, designed to provide power to airport lighting series circuits. These regulators assure a balanced load distribution, high power factor, elevated efficiency and output sinusoidal current, independently by the load. OCEM also took care of the supply of all accessories including the cabling.

Cesare Rizzoli, OCEM’s MD: we were extremely proud to have won this key turnkey contract in Africa which was no doubt the biggest and most important contract in the region since years. With the help of key partners like Orascom and TBFC we have delivered this project on time, on budget and fully respecting the customers wishes. Cairo International Airport will now be able to further expand its position in the region and we are glad to help achieve their ambitions.
