Senegal’s new Blaise Diagne International Airport has chosen to minimise its parking lot headaches and secure its massive freight zone with intelligent Smart surveillance, from the world’s leading supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, Hikvision.

Officially opened by Senegalese President Macky Sall in December 2017, Blaise Diagne International Airport (AIBD) covers 4,500ha of land located near the town of Diass, 47km from the capital of Dakar. Built at a cost of $575 million, the new airport is one of the largest travel hubs in West Africa, with a main runway designed to accommodate long-haul aircraft such as the A380 and B787. Approximately 3 million passengers are expected to travel through AIBD annually, increasing to 10 million by 2035.

Served by leading airlines including Air Algérie, Air Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopian Airlines, Air France, Kenya Airways, Tunisair, Iberia and South African Airways, catering for passengers with state-of-the-art infrastructure, the airport’s car parking and freight zone are being secured and managed with the help of a Hikvision intelligent surveillance system.

With a two level 42,000m2 main passenger terminal and 12,800m² cargo terminal building designed to handle 50,000 tons of cargo and 80,000 aircraft movements annually, the new airport offers a long-term solution to intra-African economic activity, providing excellent levels of aviation connectivity.

Parking Management

To address the security, efficient management and profitability objectives of the airport’s 17 car park entrances and exits, operator Senecar enlisted the help of Hikvision Authorised Distributor, CST Securite.

Effective Access Management

The Hikvision Smart Parking Management System employed at AIBD uses the latest barrier technology combined with Hikvision industry-standard ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), to ensure seamless, managed vehicular entrance and exit from parking lots.

High-level Freight Security

To provide the airport’s security and management teams with effective real-time and playback monitoring, at the control room, Hikvision NVR-7332NI-E4/16P Embedded Plug & Play NVR’s and a DS-7716NI-I4 NVR were installed to provide up to 6MP resolution recording. Simple and intuitive systems control is provided by Hikvision’s iVMS-5200E Control Software, enabling all aspects of the surveillance system to be managed effectively.
