Airports – Feasibility Studies

Why conduct feasibility studies?

Feasibility studies are designed to reveal the most significant constraints likely to effect development.

The risks associated with a project in a specialised area may not be immediately apparent without previous experience. For example, the type of radar that are utilised at a given airport can affect the type of developments that can have an adverse effect and subsequently receive an objection. 

What are the benefits of a Pager Power Feasibility Study?

Pager Power’s feasibility study will quantify the most significant constraints and inform next steps in order to progress the project. This gives the developer an overview of the issues they are likely to face and minimises the likelihood of significant risks arising unexpectedly at a late stage.

What does a Pager Power Feasibility Study Cover?

Developments near Airports

Developments of almost any kind, including buildings, solar developments and wind developments, that are near airports can require careful consideration. Concerns are most likely for solar developments within 10 km, building developments within 20km and wind developments within 50 km. These distances are not set in stone, they are indicative to give some context to the word ‘near’.

For solar developments, the key consideration is glare towards air traffic controllers and/or pilots. For buildings and wind developments, concerns include collision risk, radar interference and impacts on procedures.

“I am very pleased with the excellent support I have received from Pager Power. Our Albert Island development sits immediately outside London City Airport’s boundary. Pager Power has helped us maximise the size of the development whilst liaising with the Airport. Pager Power has assessed physical safeguarding, instrument flight procedures, radio navigation aids, glint and glare, lighting, turbulence and the Public Safety Zone.

    This month in our Back to Basics series, we uncover the ways in which energy generated by wind and solar farms can be stored and how this technology will shape the future of our energy systems. Learn more: https://www.pagerpower.com/news/back-to-basics-part-4-energy-storage/

    We examine the possibility of harnessing the massive energy output from stars rather than capturing a fraction of the sunlight that reaches Earth. Learn more: https://www.pagerpower.com/news/cosmic-megastructures-dyson-sphere-and-future-of-solar-energy/

    We review a study examining methods to reduce the impact of airfield solar on aircraft and facilitate more renewable energy generation. Learn more: https://www.pagerpower.com/news/balancing-solar-energy-generation-pilot-safety-at-airports/
