Changshui International Airport Selects Falcon Waterfree Urinals
Falcon Waterfree Technologies is pleased to announce that Changshui International Airport has installed Falcon Urinals throughout the new airport.
Kunming Wujiaba International Airport (KMG), the gateway to Southwest China’s Yunnan Province, was the seventh busiest airport in China in 2010. Amid rising demand and capacity constraints, Kunming is nearing completion on the $3.8 billion replacement, Kunming Changshui International Airport, which is scheduled to be open on June 28, 2012. The new airport, featuring 330 Falcon Urinals, will become the fourth largest aviation hub in China.
Currently China’s largest airport project, Changshui International Airport is located 30 kilometers northeast of downtown Kunming and is expected to be a key driver of Kunming’s short- and mid-term development. In addition to expanded domestic flight services, the airport is expected to further internationalize the city with direct links to Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia and possibly Australia and the Americas. Initial capacity at the new airport includes a maximum annual throughput of 38 million passengers and 950,000 tons of cargo. It will also be able to handle 303,000 flights per year.
“We are proud to be installed in China’s first green airport. We look forward to helping the facility in its environmental and cost saving initiatives and continuing to grow Falcon’s business in China,” said Marc Nathanson, Chairman and CEO of Falcon. “These 330 Falcon Urinals will help save approximately 13.2 million gallons of water every year.”
