La Palma Jet Blast Fence

Hillside Blast Deflector Protects Coastal Road

Project Details

Location: La Palma Airport
Canary Islands, Spain
Project: Runway 35 Jet Blast Deflector
Contractor: Grupisa-Sevial S.A.
Owner: AENA
  • Multi-phased project required careful coordination with main contractor
  • Challenging site geometry
  • Remote project location
  • Thrust rating required extremely heavy-duty structure

The airport at La Palma had a unique challenge— jet blast produced by departing aircraft was creating hazardous conditions on a public roadway directly behind, and below, the runway. Due to the significant grade change, and to avoid creating an obstacle to landing aircraft, the deflector was installed on the hillside.
