DF NÚCLEO TO EQUIP FIVE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL TOWERS IN ALGERIA
DF Núcleo has reaffirmed its position as a leading supplier to Africa's aeronautical industry after being recently awarded a contract to equip five air traffic control towers in Algeria.

The scope of the project includes the supply, installation and comissioning of state-of-the-art air traffic control communications equipment for the control towers and technical room of five Algerian airports (Algiers, Oran, Constantine, Ghardaia and Tamanrasset). These five airports are operated by ENNA, Algeria's air navigation service provider (ANSP).

In 2016, said airports registered almost 10 million passengers, with the Houari Boumédiène International Airport in Algiers standing out as the sixth largest airport in the continent in terms of passenger traffic.
