Composing an Expanded Airport
Modernizing Warsaw’s Fryderyk Chopin Airport
Named for the famous composer and Warsaw resident, the Fryderyk Chopin Airport, Poland's largest and busiest airport, serves 3.5 million passengers annually. The international airport was built in 1933, with a new terminal added in 2001. The modernization and expansion of the airport and its facilities is an ongoing process, including terminals, runways, taxiways, patrol roads, fire exits, aircraft deicing, a central distribution fuel system, a hotel, and a cargo terminal.
Over the last 10 years, we have been providing consulting services for most stages of modernization, including ecological reviews, information sheets, and environmental impact assessment reports. Recently, we assessed the existing water and wastewater treatment and infrastructure at the airport to identify the approaches and available resources for modernizing and upgrading the facilities. The review assessed the water supply distribution system, sewerage networks, stormwater management facilities, storage reservoirs, wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations, and aircraft deicing wastewater collection and separation facilities. The goal is to provide the most efficient and effective facilities that will support the airport’s continued growth and expansion.
