Parsons outlines key trends driving aviation, rail, and artificial intelligence amid growing sustainability focus

by Madaline Dunn

Parsons Corporation, a technology provider in the national security and global infrastructure markets, has shared the latest trends driving best practices for sustainability in the region across key sectors such as aviation, rail, and artificial intelligence (AI).

According to Parsons, key trends across critical sectors in the UAE include:

· Rail as a sustainable form of transport

Economic growth linked to increasing urban populations and associated traffic congestion has led to numerous passenger transit investments. In addition to aiding the economy’s growth, it highlighted “innumerable benefits” to the environment. 

Mass transit, it said, is inherently the most sustainable form of transport given the carbon impact is much less compared to road and air travel, be it metro or rail, high-speed, respectively. 

Rail transportation of goods has a similarly massive impact on carbon reduction by taking heavy goods vehicles off the road.

The success of Dubai passenger operation and ridership has set a precedent in the region. High speed is the next big passenger opportunity to build connectivity between cities and complement the metro services within cities, it shared.

· Ensuring aviation infrastructure sustainability

According to Parsons, innovative infrastructure projects continue to transform the Middle East into an international destination, airport asset owners and operators are looking for opportunities to improve efficiency, throughput, and sustainability not just on the airside —runways, aprons, taxiways, etc.— but also on landside such as terminals and supporting infrastructure. 

· Seamless integration of AI in construction and engineering

Parsons shared that it is integrating, streamlining, and scaling artificial intelligence (AI) and 360-degree imagery on nearly 30 deployments, including mega- and giga-projects, across the Middle East. 

Working with, the company is leveraging the platform for this initiative, combining the latest in technology with advanced construction supervision technologies to improve efficiency throughout the project lifecycle.

Pierre Santoni, President of Europe, Middle East, and Africa at Parsons, commented: “The engineering sector is undergoing a transformative revolution led by artificial intelligence. Parsons distinguishes its projects through our proficiency in implementing cutting-edge technologies, fostering a smooth integration of AI and introducing an era of unparalleled efficiencies and capabilities.”
