New Cargo Terminal

The purpose-built, fast connection terminal, designed for an annual air cargo throughput of 2.6 million tonnes, was 'topped out' in November 2011. The terminal contains many sustainability design features, including the HK$1.4 billion material handling system, which is the most advanced in the world to date, and utilises regenerative power. After trialling a chilled ceiling cooling system at the current site offices, it was decided that the system will also be installed at the permanent cargo offices at Cathay Pacific Services Limited and the Cathay Pacific cargo hub offices. It is estimated that an electricity saving of 30% to 40% will be achieved compared to conventional air conditioning systems.

For the construction process, precast beam, slab modules and re-useable system formworks will be employed to reduce material wastage. In order to reduce the usage of diesel generators, we also installed a temporary transformer on site.
