The Address | Benghazi – Libya

ROME – Italian company ENAV announced on Tuesday that it has signed a contract with Libyan Civil Aviation Authority for the modernization of the control tower equipment of the International Airport in Tripoli.

ENAV is a state-owned company responsible for the provision of air traffic services and other air navigation services in Italy.

In a statement, the company said “the contract provides for the supply and installation of 3 new workstations for Air Traffic Controllers, the integration and commissioning of ground-board-ground and ground-ground communications systems, as well as infrastructure for data and wireless networks.”

The new technical and operational infrastructures will ensure the provision of all air navigation services aimed at ensuring the full operation and security of the airport. The end of the works is expected by 2019.
The contract is worth 2 million euros and also provides an option of 900,000 euros for the supply and installation of weather components.
“ENAV is already working with the Libyan aviation authorities and is currently working on the construction of the new control tower and the technical block of the International Airport of Mitiga, the other port of Tripoli, which is currently operating thanks to a tower mobile control provided by ENAV.”
The statement quoted the company’s CEO, Roberta Neri, as saying, “For ENAV, operating in Libya is of strategic importance: in fact, the southern part of our airspace borders Libya, which is currently subject to strong restrictions on commercial flights. The new Mitiga control tower will be completed in March, and by the end of next year both Tripoli airports will be fully operational thanks to our support.”
