Surabaya Airport, Indonesia

PROJECT SUMMARY

ACG were contacted by the Projects EPCM partner to provide specialist aerodrome technical and planning advice. The project is located in a growing district in Indonesia which has large manufacturing businesses and challenging terrain.

Project Capital Cost: $2 Bn USD

ROLE

Airport site selection and planning

PROJECT CHALLENGES AND OUTCOMES

The client’s preferred location was within close proximity to the manufacturing and residential areas. The open field that was selected had poor ground conditions as well as being located closely to a steep mountain range. ACG undertook a feasibility site bulk earthworks modelling exercise to establish balanced earthworks model to minimise overall project construction budget. This involved the re-direction of a number of streams and overland water courses. The works also identified the relocation and re-direction of existing roads, buildings, power supply and water services.

To further detail the potential development costs a preliminary aircraft pavement design, regional airport terminal and landside concept was undertaken. The final predicted earthworks volume was between 8,000,000m3 for a smaller scale development to 24,000,000m3 for a larger scale Code E aircraft capable development.

To assess the viability of the site an aeronautical study was undertaken to determine the local terrain’s infringement into protected airspace.
