Energy International Corporation (EIC), a world leader in the design, supply and integration of electromechanical solutions, along with partner Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI), a global leader in building efficiency and power solutions, have been chosen to provide comprehensive IT, building management and security systems to the new Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan.
The systems will be installed in a new (USD) $600 million, 86,000 m2 (925,000 sq. ft.) terminal, part of a (USD) $994 million airport upgrade and expansion project scheduled to be completed in 2012. The new terminal will increase capacity from 4.4 million passengers to an estimated nine million annually.
“The new Queen Alia International Airport is an important project for Jordan and the region,” said Michael Shararah, General Manager, EIC Building Controls Division. “By teaming with Johnson Controls, we combine two highly respected companies with the latest in high end products and a highly experienced and talented team that can deliver a turnkey solution including design, supply, installation, testing/commissioning, training, warranty and maintenance. We are extremely proud of adding a major airport to our project portfolio since airports are the pinnacle of accomplishments for Systems Integrators.”
EIC will serve as the systems integrator overseeing all aspects of the project and working with JCI exclusively on the design and implementation of the building management, access control and closed-circuit TV systems.
“Johnson Controls provides us with comprehensive solutions for BMS and security systems that have been proven in airports around the world for reliability, efficiency and security,” said Shararah. “We have worked with them and the client to design a custom solution that will bring building automation and security to a new level of integration.”
In addition to building management and security systems, EIC is also providing turnkey solutions for networking, telephony and wireless using Cisco, structured cabling using Leviton, fire alarm using Notifier, a world leader in this field, public address system, IP television, and master clock system.
EIC’s systems play a key role in the success of this airport since they provide the backbone of IP communications including wireless, the building equipment automation, key security systems, and communications to passengers.
