TYPSA designs the new Lahore airport in Pakistan

TYPSA presented the tentative new expansion design for Lahore International Airport to the Prime Minister of Pakistan and the country’s airport authorities at the beginning of September 2016. The design, which was commissioned by the Pakistani government earlier in the year, will allow the current Lahore airport to increase its annual handling capacity from 4.5 million passengers to over 25 million passengers. The new building will have a gross floor area of 325,000 square metres with thirty-one boarding bridges, while the aircraft parking apron and taxiways will be extended by 310,000 square metres. A new underground multi-storey car park and a new air cargo terminal area will also be built and the current accesses will be restructured to cope with the required capacity. TYPSA also presented a design proposal allowing for a possible increase to 35 million passengers a year, including a new runway, expansion of the terminal area, new...

TYPSA and the GRAVI3 Research Project

As part of its ongoing commitment to innovation, research and development, TYPSA Group has been consolidating its position in recent years as an authority in the design of gravity base foundations for offshore wind power. GRAVI3 technology is one of the results of this commitment. This innovative steel and concrete hybrid structure for wind farms at intermediate depths, between 35 and 60 metres, will significantly reduce the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE). Three concrete caissons are built on a floating dock, the steel structure and the turbine are installed on top and they are then towed to their final location. Once in position they are sunk to a prepared bedding layer on the seabed, using water as ballast. The European Commission has selected a proposal made by TYPSA, as the owner of the patent, and the Portuguese group EDP and other partners, to carry out a demonstration project of this...

San Antonio Large-Scale Port project in Chile

TYPSA is working on the basic engineering studies for the Port of San Antonio’s large-scale port (PGE) project. Chile’s main port, Port of San Antonio, is located in the central part of the country and is the closest port to the capital, Santiago. The studies were commissioned by the Empresa Portuaria San Antonio (EPSA), the state-owned company that manages and develops the port’s maritime-port activity. The studies encompass a new container terminal basin with a 3,500 m berthing line, which will allow for future port infrastructure as of the next decade, when it is estimated that demand will exceed the current capacity. TYPSA’s assignment includes preparing the Large-Scale Port preliminary design, thoroughly analysing aspects relating to general port operation, generating the physical characterization of the area and further developing the structural design. The work will be done over a one-and-a-half year period, and will be developed in parallel with other...

Supervision of the desalination plant in Al Khafji

TYPSA has been awarded the contract to review the detailed design and supervise the construction works of the desalination plant in Al Khafji, in Saudi Arabia, including the photovoltaic plant to power it. The facility, developed by Advanced Water Technology, is the first desalination plant in the world to be powered by solar energy and is a milestone in the quest for sustainable solutions in the field of water management. Located on the shores of the Arabian Gulf, it is just a few kilometres from the border with Kuwait and is designed to produce 60,000 m3/day of desalinated seawater using a reverse osmosis process, to supply the town of Al-Khafji. A 20 MW photovoltaic plant will be built about 2 km from the desalination plant on a 90 ha site, making this the world’s first large-scale desalination plant powered autonomously by solar energy. The plant design, construction and commissioning works...
