In the last few months, Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB), together with its service providers and building contractors, have completed the necessary preparations for the start of the comprehensive operating principle tests (Wirk-Prinzip-Prüfungen, WPP) for BER Terminal T1.
Out of a total of twelve asset groups required to be tested, ten have already been certified with positive results by testing experts and therefore ready for the WPP. In the last few days, the tests for asset group 05 (fire detection and alarm systems) have been completed successfully. In asset group 06 (emergency power supply/safety lighting), the processing of defects has also progressed so far that the start of the operating principle tests can now take place.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “The start of the higher-level operative principle tests in July confirms that opening BER in October 2020 is on schedule. My special thanks go to the Terminal 1 project managers and the team of experts who have done everything they can in recent weeks to complete the necessary preparations for the final tests to begin“.
