Tokyo: NEC Corporation announced its provision of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure solutions, supporting the modernisation process of RIOgaleao – Tom Jobim International Airport in Rio de Janeiro, one of Brazil’s busiest international airports.
The contract for this project was signed in June 2015 between NEC and the Consorcio Construtor Galeao, composed of the Construtora Norberto Odebrecht and Montagens e Projetos Especiais S.A. (MPE) construction companies.
NEC’s solutions are already being implemented in the construction of the South Pier of the airport, including the modernisation of Terminal 2 and nearby parking facilities.
NEC’s project comprises the implementation of closed-circuit TV (CCTV), fire detection/alarm systems, access control, telephony, wireless Internet access and digital signage flight monitors.
“This is an interesting and complex project, in which we are responsible for a wide variety of information and communications technology systems that need to be fully integrated with existing solutions at the international airport,” said Massato Takakuwa, the government business director for NEC in Brazil.
“NEC’s solutions will be essential to ensure the safety of passengers and their access to flight information, in addition to the quality of their communications via telephone and the Internet,” Takakuwa added.
More than 200 professionals from NEC are engaged for the project, including specialists in multiple IT and telecommunications systems.
“NEC regards its selection for this project as recognition of its experience and expertise in the integration of a diverse range of technologies. This project strongly reflects the company’s objectives of offering end-to-end solutions that help generate social value through the modernisation of important infrastructure, such as airports and shipping ports,” said Daniel Mirabile, president of NEC in Brazil.
