The Italian company provided airfield systems for renovations on the FCO airport runway.

OCEM Airfield Technology’s innovative remote-monitoring LED lighting solutions played a key role in runway renovations at Rome Fiumicino-Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport completed Oct. 17.

The two-phase renovation involved upgrading the taxiways and temporary track, then reinforcing and repaving Runway 3 16L-34R. OCEM provided new LED lights for the entire renovated runway, including the end, edge, threshold, touchdown zone runway, center line, circulation routes, stop bar and Rapid Exit Taxiway Indicator Light.

OCEM fittings can be monitored remotely via the ILCMS, an airfield ground lighting control system designed and manufactured by OCEM, eliminating the need to go out on the airfield.

The new installations represent an important increase in remote monitoring-capable signals and also in control and monitoring modules for Rome Fiumicino. OCEM also provided LED lighted signage that can withstand winds of up to 483 km/hr produced by some of the world’s largest jet engines, including Airbus A380.
Customer is supported by a local resident team of highly skilled engineers operating throughout this project’s commissioning and for the maintenance period.

OCEM looks forward to helping help Rome FCO accommodate more passengers and realize its goal of increasing passenger traffic from 35 million to 57 million annually.
