Why There was Vibration at Lagos Airport-FG


The Nigerian government has denied reports of an earthquake at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria said on Sunday that the vibration experienced at the airport last week was as a result of unlatched doors in the air handling room,Premium Times reports.
Henrietta Yakubu, acting general manager, corporate affairs of FAAN, said in a statement that the vibration occurred directly under the office of Royal Air Maroc and that led to the wrong assumption that something was wrong.
“Well first and foremost it is wrong and erroneous that the structure of the Murtala Muhammed Airport is failing and there was earthquake as reported by some sections of the media,” the statement said.
“It is not so; what happened is that there was vibrations at the air handling room of the cooling system, this door is a huge metal door that needs to be locked properly (and) it was locked but it wasn’t latched properly, the latches were not in place and that gave rise to the vibration because there are moving parts, there are motors and fans and other things that are activated and they function the motion to create the necessary cooling system,” it said.
“Once our men were alerted, they went promptly, identified the problem which was the door, and latched the door and since then there had been quiet, so it’s not true,” the statement said.
Commenting further, FAAN said the airport’s engineering department was working on the chillers too.
“We are working on those chillers and in no distant time the airport will be quite chilled and comfortable for our passengers,” he noted.
