On Monday, the CEOs of Avinor, Kongsberg Gruppen and Indra Navia came together to present their plans for remote-operated air traffic control towers. This initiative is the largest to be ever launched in this sector of international air transport, and will provide safe and efficient operations at Norwegian airports in the years ahead.
In August, Kongsberg Gruppen and Avinor Air Navigation Services announced a NOK 400 million contract for the supply of a number of remotely controlled air traffic control towers. Kongsberg Gruppen will be the main supplier, in close cooperation with its partner Indra Navia AS. On Monday 28 September, the plans and technological potentials were presented.
“Remote towers are an important focus area that offers great possibilities both for the Avinor Group and the Norwegian aviation industry. The technology allows for safe and efficient operation of Norwegian airports, and will help us to maintain the extensive aviation services we have in Norway,” says Dag Falk-Petersen, Avinor CEO.
