Opened in June 2014, the Fort MacMurray International Airport's newest terminal is a thing of beauty. The $258-million dollar terminal is five times larger than it's older counterpart, and features four aircraft bridges & eight aircraft parking stands. The terminal is one-of-a-kind, an environmentally sustainable facility built for the harsh northern climate.
The air terminal building is climate controlled by Mitsubishi Electric double heat recovery water source systems, utilizing state of the art variable refrigerant flow technology. These systems provide building comfort conditions by allowing simultaneous heating and cooling operation as required at various locations in the building while at the same time maximizing building energy efficiency. Computerized control and energy management programs optimize the energy recovery process to ensure the least possible energy consumption and minimizing operating costs.
