The 1st Midfield Satellite Building, South Tunnel Extension, and Automatic People Mover (APM) System for Suvarnabhumi Airport Development Project.


Location :
Suvarnabhumi Airport, Samutprakarn
Client :
Airports of Thailand Public Company Limited (AOT PCL)
Project Value :
Baht 40,000 million
Commencement and Completion :
May 2013 - March 2014
Project scope :

The AOT aims to increase a capacity of the existing airport facility by adding the midfield satellite concourse building or Satellite -1 to existing terminal complex. MAA and its consortium partners were engaged to provide consultancy services for the design of the project consists of the following facilities; The 1st Midfield Satellite (SAT-1) has total floor area approximately 216,000 square meters with 28 contact gates, 8 of which were designed to accommodate Code F aircraft (A-380) and 20 for Code E aircraft (B-747). Apron and taxiways around SAT-1 building were designed to accommodate 28 aircraft stands, covering the area approximately 960,000 square meters. Extension of the existing South Tunnel, the Automated People Mover (APM), the Airside Roads A further extension of the “South Tunnel” will be designed and constructed to provide a connection between the end of the tunnel which was constructed in Phase 1 and SAT-1 building. The tunnel is extended under the apron and southern taxiway of SAT-1 building to accommodate the Baggage Handling System (BHS), with a total length of approximately 700 meters. An Automated People Mover (APM) was designed to be the transportation system which transports passengers between main terminal building (MTB) and Sat-1 building. The Baggage Handling System runs along the tunnel extended under an apron and southern taxiway of SAT-1 building.
