News: Kilometres of cables

The new terminal at Schiphol is being built next to the air traffic control tower: right on top of all the cables and pipework that keep essential installations such as that tower working. That means those lines will have to be moved. The project will involve re-routing a total of 200 different cables and laying 40 km of new pipelines and 80 km of new cables. To put that into perspective, 80 km is roughly the distance from Amsterdam to Rotterdam. According to project coordinator Steffen, ‘This will be the biggest re-routing project ever of cables and pipelines at Schiphol.’
