Abu Dhabi Intl Airport

Abu Dhabi International, located in the capital pf the United Arab Emirates, is the second largest airport in the UAE, serving over 12 million passengers, and is one of the fastest growing airports in the world. 

It has three passenger terminals and is used by 53 airlines offering services to 85 destinations in 49 countries on all inhabited continents.

Development work is underway and includes a new passenger terminal designed bSkidmore, Owings & Merrill as well as a multi-million dollar extension to the airport's fuel depot which is now being protected by Advanced’s Axis AX system. The new 'Midfield Terminal’ will be the main building and centrepiece of the new airport. Upon completion in 2017, it will increase the airport’s passenger capacity to more than 25 million per year, with options for this to double in capacity to 50 million.

The ambitious project will provide a home base for the UAE's national carrier, Etihad Airways, which will be a primary user of new cargo facilities which will have an ultimate handling capacity of around two million tonnes of freight per year.

The new fire system covers control rooms, office buildings, substations and operational areas. It comprises five Axis AX 4-loop panels, BACnet BMS integration and over 300 individual components and devices.

The system was supplied by Telectron, Advanced’s partner in Abu Dhabi. 

The Axis AX panels supplied by Advanced are networked together in a fault-tolerant, ‘ring network’ and then interfaced to a Programmable Logic Circuit (PLC) using redundant communication. Optical smoke detectors are specified in the main buildings, while flame and gas detectors are being used in operational areas, interfacing directly with the PLC.

Advanced’s Axis AX system has been designed to offer enhanced power and performance in a user-friendly format, offering a vast range of configuration, control and interface options all with simple set-up and operation and Advanced’s legendary service and quality. The Axis AX systems includes easily networked panels, audio panels and command centres, redundant controllers and a huge range of peripherals, devices and interfaces that make it ideal for almost any installation.
