Aeronautical Ground Lighting Upgrade at Inverness Airport

HIAL are replacing the aged Aeronautical Ground Lighting (AGL) system for Inverness Airport’s runway. The AGL system is the runway lighting that acts as visual guidance for approaching aircraft.  

This is essential CAA regulated maintenance work that will also benefit from cost and energy savings from the new LED lighting replacements. The replacement AGL LED lights are critical to the ongoing safe operations of the airport, and will include work on:  

  • Runway 23’s approach lights  

  • The main runway edge, threshold and stop-end lights  

  • Associated primary and secondary cabling  

  • Associated foundations, plinths, mounts and masts 

The project has been organised in a way that will not impact on any of the usual operations of the airport. The work being carried out by vehicles and machinery will be of minimum sound, which will not be heard outside of the airport.  

The project is intended to start in April 2024 and it is anticipated that it will finish in September 2024. The contract to complete the work was awarded to G&A Barnie after a procurement process.
