Muscat airport, Oman
Client: Bahwan Engineering
Location: Muscat, Oman
The Sultanate of Oman is upgrading its airports to cope with increasing demand. At the main Muscat airport, expansion is well under way with a new terminal and expanded runway and ground support areas ready to handle 12 million passengers a year. Further expansion phases have been planned, taking the airport up in stages to a capacity of 24, 36 and then 48 million passengers a year.
Adexsi was asked to assist with the smoke and natural ventilation needs of the new terminal’s piers. The solution was the bespoke design and supply of 33 acoustic Certilight phonique extract terminals, with twin ventilation flaps that particularly suit high atrium situations. The “phonique” name indicates that the ventilator units are designed with a high acoustic attenuation capability, to limit the volume of noise from aircraft jet engines that reaches the building interior.
