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.

    Currently, the UK has the largest and most dynamic #offshore -wind market in the world. However, new arrangements are expected to change this. The new UK policy is set to reduce investors’ returns and increase consumers’ costs. Learn more: https://bit.ly/3885ov0 #offshoreenergy

    Ice storms and bitter temperatures resulted in electricity blackouts for days in the state of Texas. Social media and TV have circulated claims that the state’s use of wind energy is to blame for the #blackouts. Were the blackouts caused by #renewables? https://bit.ly/3kpSD3K

    Solar panels in space offer the possibility of accessing sunlight at all times of day, unaffected by climate. Does a giant solar farm in space sound absurd to you? We look at the facts and how it might work. https://bit.ly/3kj5kxf #solarpanels #solarenergy #solarpv #space
