ENAV inaugurates the new Control Tower at Venice Airport

The inauguration was held, at the ENAV facilities of the Marco Polo Airport in Venice, of the new Control Tower, a futuristic structure for air traffic control, and one of the most techno-logically advanced in Europe, designed to handle the current rate of 75,000 departures and arri-vals per year, making it the 4th largest Italian airport by number of flights, and the 5th largest by number of passengers.
The ceremony was opened by ENAV CEO Guido Pugliesi, with interventions by ENAC Chair-man Vito Riggio, the Chairman/CEO of SAVE Enrico Marchi, the Mayor of Venice Giorgio Orsoni, with conclusions by the Minister of the Civil Service and Innovation, Renato Brunetta. The event was also attended by the President of the Province of Venice, Francesca Zaccariotto. After the blessing of the new facility by Monsignor Fausto Bonini, delegate of the Patriarch of Venice, the facility was formally opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony con-ducted by Minister Brunetta.

The total investment by ENAV was 35 million euro
The new Tower, 53 metres high, houses the Tower room (TWR), Approach room (APP) with a back-up facility, simulation and training rooms, as well as equipment rooms and rest areas.
The terminals are equipped with the most up-to-date technology, ensuring air traffic control op-eration services with maximum safety standards: ground radar, approach radar, interface for flight information, remote control and Luminous Visual Aids control, automatic weather systems and operational frequencies / telephones with multiphone system.

Techno Sky, a subsidiary fully owned by ENAV, has participated in the operations for starting up the new Venice TWR, ensuring constant availability of connections and technical services. The Techno Sky contribution regards both the preliminary functional testing phases and the subse-quent stages of performance analysis and change over for the new infrastructures. The transfer stages have been supported with increased technical personnel, in order to manage the new systems with the utmost promptness and in compliance with the highest safety standards.

This investment means that the Venice Tessera Airport has highly advanced tech-nologies and systems thus making it one of the most advanced airports on the international level. In particular, the new facilities and technologies used to set them up will enable ENAV to undertake air traffic control services with constantly increasing levels of safety, punctuality and efficiency.
