SPIE strengthens its partnership with Brussels South Charleroi Airport
Brussels, 17 September 2020 – SPIE Belgium, the Belgian subsidiary of SPIE, the independent European leader in multi-technical services in the areas of energy and communications, has been contributing to the development and maintenance of Brussels South Charleroi Airport for over 20 years. This year, the airport is entering a new phase of its development.
For over 20 years, SPIE Belgium has been responsible for works involving kerosene storage and runway marking on a regular basis. As the collaboration has developed, other one-off projects have also been added to SPIE’s portfolio. Now, SPIE Belgium has the responsibility of installing a fourth kerosene storage reservoir and is thus involved in the project to extend the runway at Charleroi airport, along with other companies with expertise in this area.
Yves Dupont, Department Manager, in the Infrastructure division of SPIE Belgium, explains the reasons behind this fruitful partnership with the airport: “Our long and positive collaboration with Charleroi airport is thanks to the real added value in terms of the day-to-day expertise provided by the SPIE Belgium teams on the airport’s worksites. We work with highly qualified staff based at the site on a permanent basis, with up to 15 staff members depending on the tasks at hand. Furthermore, we have developed a real partnership with our contacts, the Société Wallonne des Aéroports (SOWAER, site owner) and Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA, airport operator) over the years, which allows us to optimise value creation and thus contribute to the growth of our businesses.”
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:
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.
