LIPAD, groups forge Clark airport maintenance pacts

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO The Luzon International Premiere Airport Development Corporation (LIPAD) recently signed two separate agreements for the comprehensive maintenance of Clark International Airport’s new terminal building.

The contracts cover facilities management and energy efficiency performance with Professional Operations and Maintenance Experts Incorporated (PROMEI) and Philippine DCS Development Corporation (PDDC) both joint ventures between Engie Services Philippines and Filinvest Development Corporation.

Under the facilities management contract, PROMEI will carry out routine and planned maintenance and repair of electrical systems, mechanical plant and ventilation systems, plumbing systems, the building and hard infrastructure.

Meanwhile, under the energy efficiency performance contract, PDDC will finance, build, and operate the terminal’s entire chilled water plant with a total installed capacity of 3,000 tonnes or refrigeration under a build, own, operate, and transfer model.

PDDC will undertake the energy efficiency element with full comprehensive operations and maintenance, plant-side.

Over a 22-year period, these partnerships will deliver a guaranteed energy savings equivalent to over 41,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions - the quantity of CO2 that would be captured by approximately 1.6 million trees, with an additional 11,230 tonnes of potential CO2 savings to be derived from proper systems maintenance.

Lipad is a special purpose company established to manage the operations and maintenance of Clark International Airport.

The members of LIPAD are Filinvest Development Corporation, JG Summit Holdings Inc., Philippine Airport Ground Support Solutions Inc. and Changi Airports Philippines (I) Pte. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Changi Airports International. The consortium members each have vast experience in airport operations, air transportation and property development.

Clark International Airport’s new terminal building reflects Lipad’s commitment to working towards expanding the airport’s travel network.

With a capacity of up to eight million passengers per annum for both international and domestic travel, the new terminal will connect Clark to more domestic and international points.

This wil spur its position as the country’s premier travel gateway.
