Ridgepole celebration at the 3D technology factory

Ridgepole celebration of the liquid crystal display / 3D technology factory built by Skonto Būve and owned by SIA EUROLCDS was held in Ventspils. The celebration was attended by Ventspils Mayor Aivars Lembergs, SIA Skonto Būve Project Manager Egīls Klēbergs, SIA EUROLCDS Member of Board Ilmārs Osmanis, and others.

The ridgepole celebration marks the beginning of the most difficult construction stage – the connecting and testing of all engineering systems. The client expressed gratitude during the event to SIA Skonto Būve for the successful cooperation. City Mayor Aivars Lembergs emphasised the uniqueness of the project, and wished the entrepreneurs success in their future work at the plant.

The new plant in Ventspils will be the largest of its type in Europe, and the factory is planned to start operations next year. The new plant will manufacture active 3D polarisation modulator products, welding mask glasses that darken automatically in bright light, road signs and information display products using the EASL Polydisplay technology, etc.

Skonto Būve builds the most modern control management centre in Eastern and Northern Europe at Riga Airport

The most modern Operational Management Centre (OMC) has been opened at Riga International Airport. The construction of the OMC was performed by Skonto Būve over a period of 6 months.

During the construction, a complete Operational Management Centre (OMC) was built for the airport, for the first time bringing together all security services of Riga Airport – fire department, customs, police, security police and border guards. The OMC is part of the airport’s administrative building.

The Centre uses the latest technologies, which take into account each non-standard movement and suspicious object, for example individuals in unauthorised areas, or bags accidentally left unattended at the airport.

Along with the new OMC, a new control station was also built, located in the engineering area of Riga Airport. The ramp street and equipment area were also expanded.
