The regional airports, in particular Charleroi and Liège, have registered explosive growth in traffic. Against this background, the Société Wallonne des Aéroports (SOWAER) has called on SPIE over many years for its airport infrastructures.
In partnership with the contractors Wanty and TRBA, SPIE Belgium is taking part in the extension of the Charleroi airport runway to put in new marking structures, an essential element for the safe movement of aircraft on the ground, day and night.
SPIE Belgium is also tasked with equipping new access ramps in the parking areas and temporary gates created for the transfer of approach lighting.
An expert in this type of electrification, SPIE Belgium has already worked for most Belgian civil and military airports.
As the impact of coronavirus on our activities increases and in the face of ever-stricter government measures to halt its spread, SPIE Belgium would like to inform you about the steps it has taken within the organisation.
To this day:
SPIE Belgium has decided not to stop its activities completely, considering that some of these may be essential or even critical to maintaining the activities of companies in critical sectors and essential services that are vital to the smooth running of the country. This is being done, of course, in strict respect of the measures taken by the authorities, and treating the health and safety of our staff, our clients, our suppliers and sub-contractors as a priority.
This unprecedented crisis reminds us of the importance of two of our founding values: responsibility and proximity. By each taking our responsibilities, we will overcome this ordeal.
Drawing strength from our 120 years of experience and from the solidity of the Group to which we belong, we remain confident in the future and in our mutual capacity to adapt and be resilient.
