Project Express --- Pokhara Regional International Airport Flood Lights is ON!!!

          Pokhara Regional International Airport in Pokhara, Nepal is located in the tourist destination city of Nepal, “POKHARA”. Every year many tourists including hikers, gliders, etc from all over the world come here. After the completion of Pokhara Regional International Airport, it will become the Second International Airport within Nepal. Tourist from all over the world from different countries will be able to directly fly to Pokhara without having to transfer to Kathmandu, which will be of great significance for tourism in this area.


    尼泊尔博卡拉国际机场位于旅游胜地博卡拉,每年世界各地生的徒步和滑翔爱好者们都聚集此地。博卡拉国际机场建成后将成为尼泊尔第二个国际机场,各国游客可以直接飞至博卡拉而无需前往加德满都转机,对该地的旅游推广有着重大意义。

        JHA will be responsible for the construction, installation, testing and Commissioning of AGL (Airfield Ground Lighting), Navigation, ELV, Power Supply, Security and other system for the airport which is expected to be completed in 2021. Unfortunately at the beginning of 2020, due to global pandemic of new Corona Virus (COVID-19) has adversely affected the progress of the project. With the increment in the Immigration and Customs Procedures and Restrictions in various countries, shipping companies have reduced the number of ships and flights, which has adversely affected the factory inspection, shipment and transportation of the bulk quantity of materials to be delivered in time even after the completion of production in factories.


        JHA将为该机场建设灯光、导航、弱电、供电、安检等系统,预计2021年完工。不幸的是,2020年初,新冠病毒在全球大流行,这极大的影响了工程进度。随着各国加大海关管控,各船公司减少海运班次,使得大批物资材料在工厂生产完毕之后不能及时发运,同时工厂检验也受阻。

        In the face of current situation, an emergency meeting was held by the project department, on one hand , the pandemic situation should not be allowed to get out of hand and break out in the project department on the other construction works should not come to a complete halt. Thus, since January 2020, the project department has implemented a number of measures for the pandemic prevention and control, Isolation, Disinfection of Site area and other measures to name a few. Also, construction schedule were adjusted, maximizing the project progress and hold regular meetings once a week for research and discussion. Colleagues back home in China are endlessly trying to open up new ways of Shipment to ensure the continuous supply and transportation of goods.


        面对这种状况,项目部召开紧急会议,一方面严把疫情关,决不能让疫情在项目部爆发,从2020年1月起,项目部就对疫情防控实行了多项举措,诸如隔离、消毒等措施。另一方面调整施工顺序,最大化保证工程进度,每周举行例会研究讨论。国内的同事则努力开辟新的发运方式,保证物资不断。

        At the end of March 2020, Apron High Mast Floodlights have been assembled, erected, installed and commissioned. Finally, in early April 2020, all High Mast Floodlights were successfully lit and turned on, once and for all, illuminating the dark Apron.


        2020年3月底,站坪照明高杆灯进行组装,立杆,调试。最终在2020年4月初一次性成功点亮所有高杆灯,照亮了漆黑的站坪。

        No matter how bad the environment is, no matter how hard the situation is, no matter how difficult it is, it is impossible to change the determination to win.


        无论环境多恶劣也无法阻挡前行的信念,无论形势多窘迫也无法改变必胜的决心——致敬逆行者。
