Heras remains for the next 4 years responsible for the delivery, installation and maintenance of the outside perimeter fence at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Schiphol has about 26 km of outside perimeter fence and 6 km of FOD fence at the inside (FOD fence protects the start- and landing grid from dirt).
The agreement with the Schiphol Group is based on a new trend in the construction, infrastructure and service area: Performance Focused Maintenance.
Pro active management
With this contract of Performance Focused Maintenance Schiphol gives the responsibility for the condition of the outside perimeter completely to Heras. Heras takes 24/7 care of the condition of the fence and the functionality of the gates. To achieve this Schiphol and Heras have defined a standard of the installations. This standard is the base for the condition of the outside perimeter. Heras is responsible to take the initiative for inspection and where needed to do the maintenance or replacement.
