expansion

The expansion of Singapore Changi Airport with an

additional fifth terminal is in full progress. This is

being led by a joint venture of the construction com-

panies Penta-Ocean and

Koon Construction

.

For the first time in Asia, a new 120 t

Sennebogen

6113 telescopic crawler crane is being used.

By 2020, the airport is to be expanded to a capacity

of 135 million passengers per year with the new

terminal 5.

The initial work is currently being carried out on the

buildings, and around 40 km of roads and traffic routes

are in planning to connect the new, third runway.

The 120 t Sennebogen telescopic crane is optimally

suited especially for unloading and positioning heavy

precast concrete parts. The continuously telescoping

full-power boom with a length of 40.2 m means that it

is not only possible to place the components safely but

to telescope under load as well.

Changi Airport Group has awarded the $1.12 billion

contract to a joint venture formed by Samsung C&T

Corporation and Koh Brothers for the first package of

works relating to the development of a three-runway

system at Singapore Changi Airport.

Development of Secondary Airport

A new Passenger Terminal Building (PTB) is set to be

constructed at the eastern side of Seletar Airport. A

tender for the construction of the new PTB has been

called and construction is expected to begin in October

this year.
