  • Schiphol Airport

    Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    Application:

    Schiphol installed a ROBIN 3D flex system in April 2013. After a one year trail period it was purchased in 2014. The focus is primarily on one of their six runways called the Polderbaan.

    Customer:

    You wouldn’t normally associate an airport with nature, but Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s 1600-hectare runway area offers a very special natural environment. It is located in a polder landscape, with a lot of water, grassy meadows and rich farmland. These factors all contribute to Schiphol being a popular place for birds. Over seventy species of birds populate Schiphol. Twenty-four hours a day and 365 days a year, the 17 bird controllers employed by Amsterdam Airport Schiphol ensure that air traffic is disturbed as little as possible by birds. The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) holds the airports responsible for chasing away birds up to a height of 60 metres (200ft) for landing air traffic and 150 metres (500ft) for air traffic taking off.
