Cracks found in western runway
Published on January 19, 2006

has refused to endorse the Suvarnabhumi Airport runway hand-over, after a cracks on the west runway were found. Deputy Transport Minister General Chaiyanan Charoensiri admitted that he has been informed of the six-millimetre-wide cracks, which affect 800 square metres of the west runway used for take-offs and landings. “Preliminary discussions with the contractor showed it did not mix a polymer substance with the concrete to strengthen the surface. The runway has developed cracks after test flights,” he told reporters yesterday.

Transport Minsister Pongsak Ruktapongpisal said he had not been informed of any cracks and was too busy with other issues to investigate the matter at present.

“But we [development agencies] regularly meet on Tuesdays. We could discuss it then.”

Surachit Surapongchai, senior executive vice president of AOT, however, insisted the crack along the white lines painted down the middle of the runway is really small.

Thai News Agency also reported that he referred to comments by Japanese engineers who said the crack is a normal phenomenon for airports, which could be taken care of through daily or weekly maintenance.

That the polymer was not mixed with concrete was in line with the design, he said. With polymer, the concrete would cost Bt4,000 per cubic metre, against Bt2,700 for non-polymer concrete. To reduce cost, the surface, which is not frequently used, could be built with non-polymer concrete.

“I insist that the construction is in line with the designer’s specifications and that this crack will not pose safety risks,” he said.

AOT has insisted that construction of the airport will be completed in March, including the baggage-handling system. Then, a period of three months is required for system testing as well as the transfer of equipment from Bangkok International Airport. The airport should be ready for opening in June as scheduled.

The airport’s opening has been delayed since last September due to construction delays.

Thai Capital's New Airport Beset By Scandals, Bad Luck
20 January 2006

BANGKOK (AP)--Maybe the root of the problem is all the corruption scandals. Or, perhaps, putting Bangkok's new international airport at a place called "Cobra Swamp" was simply tempting fate.

It can certainly be said that fortune has not smiled on Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport, a project that has taken more than 40 years - and still counting - to finish.

This week was especially unlucky for the high-profile project. A fire swept through a catering hall Wednesday, killing a construction worker, on the same day that officials announced cracks were found in the main runway and that software for bomb scanners needed some tweaking.

But those were only the latest setbacks at the airport, located 45 kilometers east of metropolitan Bangkok, which officials say is still on track to open later this year.

First conceived in 1960, the airport is situated at Nong Ngu Hao, or "Cobra Swamp," where villagers once caught cobras for a living.

The swamp has been transformed into a fertile ground for politicians and their wealthy friends to profit from shady dealings, allegedly ranging from land speculation to bribery and kickbacks from the THB150 billion ($3.8 billion) project.

The bomb scanners, which an official said this week had faulty software, had been the focus of a corruption scandal last year. Their U.S. vendor and the American government pointed out that middlemen had marked up the price of the scanner package by more than 70% - to THB2.6 billion. Thailand's government has said repeatedly that no officials were involved in wrongdoing.

But that was only one in a blizzard of corruption allegations.

The Nation newspaper reported last month that the airport granted its ground services contract to a company whose Bangkok address turned out to be an abandoned house.

Moreover, the paper reported that a THB1 billion contract was given to Singapore-based Frobisher Pte. Co. Ltd. without ever going to public tender. The government dismissed the paper's concerns, saying the only thing that mattered was if the company could do its job.

Even before construction started, government officials and businessmen with political connections bought large swaths of land and are alleged to have profited from land speculation.

Still, corruption raises few eyebrows in Thailand, where shady business deals are "no longer regarded as a crime but a normal business method often employed by top bureaucrats, politicians and company executives," according to a report last year by the Hong-Kong based Political & Economic Risk Consultancy.

Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has said he is determined to see the airport open by October and officials insist the deadline will be met.

Deputy Transport Minister Chainant Charoensiri said Wednesday that "95%" of the airport had been completed and it would open on time. The statement came after he announced the problem with the bomb scanners and said that inspectors had found cracks along the shoulder of the main runway, stretching for 800 meters.

Airport officials say that glitches are normal in the construction of such a massive project. The new airport is supposed to accommodate up to 45 million passengers a year and take over much of the traffic from Bangkok's aging and overcrowded Don Muang airport.

"The construction uses advanced technology that has never been used in Thailand," said Somchai Sawasdeepon, vice president of Suvarnabhumi Airport Administration Preparation, chalking problems up to a lack of local "know-how," which was being sorted out. "It's common for some problems to occur."

For good luck, and in keeping with tradition, the airport has a Thai spirit house, a shrine found at most homes and office buildings to appease the spirit of the land. Thais believe that a building's spirits must be housed and respected so they will protect the building's inhabitants.

Experts on the subject say the site could have been flawed from the start.

Attaviroj Sritula, who writes a fortunetelling column for the local Daily News, said it was wrong to take over a site once filled with wildlife and vegetation. The prime minister made much publicized comments last year that the airport's 30,000 workers were tending to the site's cobra, lizard and rat problem by eating them.

"People who disturb the animals, drive them from their homes or cause their extinction will receive the same karma in return," Attaviroj said. "Those who take over Nong Ngu Hao will be faced with disaster."

There have also been reports that wild birds common in the area could pose a danger to planes during takeoff and landing, a concern the government has dismissed.

For some residents, all the bad publicity has been a turnoff.

"I am not flying in and out of that airport," said Pat Bun, a broadcasting consultant who travels regularly. "When that airport opens, I'm going to fly into Cambodia and take a car across the border."

No. This is simply my personal opinion, although I really hope they will get their act together and open the airport in 2006 as scheduled.

Thai PM says new Bangkok airport will open by July 3

BANGKOK, Jan 24, 2006 (AFP) - Bangkok's much-delayed new international airport will open by July 3, Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said on Tuesday, less than a week after a fatal fire in a catering building there.

Speaking while inspecting the 3.7-billion-dollar airport and fire-damaged building 25 kilometers (16 miles) east of Bangkok, Thaksin said its opening depended on when revered Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej was free.

"As of now, there are no problems to cause a delay to the opening date, which I intend to be between June 28 and July 2 or 3," Thaksin told reporters.

"It depends on the availability of his majesty" to open it, Thaksin said.

The king -- the world's longest reigning monarch, who in 2006 marks 60 years since his coronation -- gave the airport's name, Suvarnabhumi, which means "golden land".

Thai Airways executive vice president Narongsak Sangapong said the airline's catering building -- in which one construction worker worker died and three were injured in the January 19 fire -- should open on time.

"We're confident the catering services building will be ready in May and will open the same time as the new airport opens," Narongsak told reporters.

Thaksin held a "soft opening" for the airport in September 2005.

Industry figures have said they did not expect it to be operating until late 2006 at the earliest.

PM insists airport will open by early July despite hiccups
AMORNRAT MAHITTHIROOK

Despite a runway surface problem and a recent fire at its catering facility, Suvarnabhumi airport will be finished and open some time between June 28 and early July, Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said yesterday. Visiting the new airport, Mr Thaksin said it would be ready for opening during that period but the exact date of the official inauguration will be set when the government consults His Majesty the King.

He inspected the airport construction site east of Bangkok yesterday and chaired a meeting of the airport development panel where he was briefed on the progress.

Mr Thaksin said Thai Airways International could repair the catering building, which caught fire last week, in time for the opening, while fixing parts of the west runway which peeled off because they were not reinforced with polymer, would not be difficult.

The THAI management has told him the catering facility will be repaired and completed in four or six months. Mr Thaksin said that even if the schedule is delayed, THAI can provide catering services to Suvarnabhumi airport using its old facility at Don Muang airport.

Regarding the runway, he said it was not cracked as some in the media had reported. The peeling resulted from the grooving of the runway surface and its material and improving it would only require use of a simple technique.

Mr Thaksin said the overall construction work and preparation of the airport's operations have so far been satisfactory.

The baggage handling system had posed a major concern because it is a crucial factor for the new airport's success. Officials had assured him the system was now functioning well.

Authorities have set the transition time for Bangkok air traffic to switch from Don Muang airport to Suvarnabhumi at 3am on the inauguration day because of the low number of flights at that hour.

Airports of Thailand Plc (AOT) submitted its plan for public transport services at the new airport for Mr Thaksin's committee to approve yesterday.

The panel agreed with the plan to introduce air-conditioned buses, taxis, limousines and rental cars.

Air-conditioned buses will be divided into the ''Airport Express'' and ''Airport Bus'' services.

Airport Express will shuttle between Suvarnabhumi and leading hotels in the Silom, Bang Lamphu, Hua Lamphong and Witthayu areas. Airport Bus will ply between the new airport and Min Buri, Happy Land, Victory Monument, Bang Na, Don Muang and Samut Prakan.

There will also be inter-provincial airport buses that will reach Pattaya city and Sa Kaeo and Nong Khai provinces.

The Bangkok Mass Transit Authority will provide airport buses for the short routes while state-run Transport Co will introduce buses for long routes.

AOT plans to select a contractor to manage all the public transport services. But Mr Thaksin suggested that AOT set up a subsidiary to manage them to prevent any possible vested interests of its contractor coming into play

The southern end of the west runway at Suvarnabhumi airport is being dug up and reinforced with polymer, which will strengthen the surface, after the top layer was found to be peeling away because the same standard had not been applied along its total length during construction. Transport Minister Pongsak Raktapongpaisal took reporters to see the work in progress yesterday. — SOMCHAI POOMLARD

READY FOR TAKEOFF

IT systems will provide the 'intelligence' behind the new Suvarnabhumi Airport

Sasiwimon Boonruang
Sometime this year, travellers are expected to experience the largest and most advanced airport in the region, Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Located on 20,000 rai of land some 30 kilometres east of Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi Airport's technology includes an automatic baggage handling system and Airport Information Management System (AIMS) designed to support annual traffic of 45 million passengers when opened, increasing to 100 million passengers in future. The IT systems are one of the keys to dealing with such large volumes of people.

Flight and technical test-runs were conducted towards the end of last year, during which time the IT systems were also examined for both the passenger terminal and cargo area.

The Airport Information Management System alone comprises more than 40 sub-systems, of which the major ones are the Flight Information Management System (FIMS), Passenger Processing, Airport Back Office, and the Operation Centre.

The FIMS manages general information of all flights, with its database connecting to international organisations and other airports and airlines.

The FIMS system also connects to the airport operation database, the gate management system, the flight/baggage information display system, the baggage handling system, as well as government sub-systems.

The Passenger Processing comprises the common user terminal equipment (CUTE), the passenger baggage reconciliation system and the local departure control system. CUTE helps the airport to simplify travel and transportation by speeding up passenger check-in and maximizing limited resources.

The CUTE check-in system, provided by airline IT specialist SITA, offers end-to-end connectivity from host to the airport desktop and provides for flight bookings, boarding passes, barcoded luggage tags, and connecting flights.

The Airport Back Office system provides the airport authority with an administrative management system that includes automated data workflow and synchronisation, and enterprise resource planning and management.

Sanguan Treejareonwiwat, chief operating officer, government solutions, Samart Corporation, which leads the consortium of Airport Systems Integration Specialists (ASIS) that handles the AIMS operation, noted that every single system function for day-to-day operations was managed by computer - from gates, bridges and workforce to baggage belts, lounges and other facilities.

Other operation sub-systems are the Airport Operations Database (AODB), Airport Management Database (AMDB), Integration System and Web Method software running on the AIMS network.

The Web Method program integrates to other sub-systems such as air traffic control, airline host computer, official airline guide, cargo free zone, airport maintenance facility, and the Custom Free Zone.

The operation centre houses three major systems: the airport operation centre (AOC), the security control centre (SCC), and the crisis control centre (CCC).

The AOC features event handling, situation coordination and facility inspection, while the SCC handles security through CCTV monitoring, access control, building automation system, and fire detection and alarm. And in times of crisis, the CCC has information for making decisions in case of an emergency.

The supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system installed in the AOC and SCC is used as a central monitoring and control system for the water and power supply in buildings around the airport.


Testing underway

The ASIS consortium, comprising ABB Airport Technology, Siemens, Satyam, and Samart Corp, now has AIMS installed in a temporary benchmark test lab at the airport.

"The system has been in testing for two years since we won the concession," said Mr Sanguan, adding that it is already being used for training.

The project is about 90 percent complete and once the building to house the system is finished all systems will be transferred, while some functions will be moved to the passenger terminal.

Unit and integration testing have already been done, he said, noting that the system is now ready for the final operation readiness airport test. This test is overseen by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) in conjuntion with the contractors.


Future technology

Two significant areas that will continue to be developed in the future are the boarding pass and the baggage tags. The present magnetic stripe boarding pass will be changed to a 2D barcode that can store more data at a cheaper price.

Now, airlines around the world are in a transition period, so Suvarnabhumi will have to wait for the readiness of the airlines, which must use the same system throughout the world.

Meanwhile, RFID tags will replace the present barcode system for better sorting of baggage.

Today, a barcode reader is attached to the baggage carousel to sort the bags, but the accuracy and speed is limited compared to RFID technology.

When RFID is used, baggage does not need to be scanned, rather the data is automatically read and transmitted using radio signals.

However, one potential problem is that the radio frequencies for each country have not been standardised and the ICAO is now working to develop a consistent system.

The problem is not a technical one, Mr Sanguan noted.


Cargo free zone

Meanwhile, another important area for IT systems is the so-called Cargo Free Zone - an area for goods not subject to tax or duties - which is operated by Thai Airport Ground Services (TAGS). The cargo free zone comprises the cargo terminal, the value added area, the import inspection building, the export inspection building, and a check in point.

The system forms part of the Airport Cargo Community System (ACCS) data centre, which TAGS has developed as a centre with internal and external links to the cargo free zone.

Supachai Keowsiri, TAGS IT director, said the ACCS system architecture is built around a server farm using dual CPUs. The system stores imported goods information sent from standard and express couriers, and connects to the agent and brokers worldwide. Other links are to the Customs, cargo terminal operators, freight forwarders, free zone operators, logistics companies, value added storage and services as well as other government agencies.

The ACCS can integrate with multiple transportation modes, including trucks, aircraft and ships, the director noted.

The cargo free zone has been designed to support 3 million metric tons of products by the year 2010, with a target to expand the capacity to 6 million tons a year in 10 years.

The sub-systems of the ACCS include the system administration management system, declaration system, FEDI and electronic payment system, cargo management system, container X-ray management program, flight information display system, management information system, database management system, and free zone information exchange.

The container X-ray management program is capable of scanning a whole container or a large size truck with no need to unseal the packages. The scanner connects the container X-ray management program directly to the ACCS system and can handle 30 trucks per hour per route.

Site integration among all the various stakeholders is expected to be completed by next month.
