Malé International Airport carried out an overall airport expansion. At the end of August this year, the expansion of Malé International Airport fully completed a waterproof project, which will soon meet the peak of tourism gold.

The Maldives is considered one of the most beautiful island countries, attracting more than one million visitors every year. The Malé International Airport which is the gateway airport of Maldives is severely constrained by hardware facilities, with an annual throughput of only 4 million passengers.

The airport runway can only take off and land medium-sized passenger aircraft. Maldives Tourism Minister Moussa Zamil said: To achieve the upgrade of the Maldives tourism industry, the prerequisite is to upgrade the airport in Malé, and the airport upgrade construction is the most significant.

The reconstruction and expansion project of Malé International Airport was officially started in July last year. Many tourists have noticed new changes in Malé airport: one side of the airport during the airport take-off and landing, bulldozers, excavators, sand pumping shuttles, seaplanes and airport flights are staggered and the on-site work at the seaside does not stop. In the process, Oriental Yuhong supplies high-quality waterproof coiled material (RSA-821 salt-tolerant polymer modified bitumen waterproofing membrane), which has excellent resistance to salt and alkali and chemical medium corrosion. According to the rigorous and standardized work method manual, the local construction workers are guided, the construction technology is taught on site, and the standardized waterproof system service is provided.

Deng Dasong, the person in charge of the Oriental Yuhong Project, said: In order not to affect the normal work of the airport, the project will be constructed from 0:00 to 6:00 every day. In addition to the pressure on the construction period, the local workers do not have any construction basis. We mainly teach them experience and technical guidance, it is better to teach people how to fish than to give fish. This trip is to spread the advanced experience of Oriental Yuhong, and truly show the strength of the first ever waterproof system service provider in Asia.

Oriental Yuhong Waterproof Technology Co., Ltd. Is the airport waterproof system service provider that comprehensive technical guidance and material supply.
