Cairns Airport International Terminal – Crane Lift

VAE are excited to be working with Cairns Airport with upgrade works to the International Terminal. Cairns Airport is one of Australia’s leading regional airports, providing air links to a variety of regional, domestic, and international destinations. Pre-COVID, Cairns Airport welcomed over 5 million passengers per year.

VAE were contracted to replace a smoke spill fan and remove three other redundant fans from the Cairns Airport International Terminal

After extensive planning and a month-long collaboration with Cairns Airport, traffic control and subcontractors, VAE successfully completed the air-side crane lift, with a 120-ton crane which was transported in by semi-trailer.

The project was undertaken within the live airport environment, without disruption, and under the required timeframe.

Many thanks to all involved in delivering a successful project for Cairns Airport and VAE.
