Breakthrough orders for Cavotec’s DX-Boost aircraft cooling technology

08:00 / 23 February 2015 Cavotec Press release

Breakthrough orders for Cavotec’s DX-Boost aircraft cooling technology

Global engineering group Cavotec has been awarded breakthrough orders for its
innovative Sub-freezing DX-Boost pre-conditioned air (PCA) technology for
cooling aircraft at the Presidential Flight Hangar at Abu Dhabi International
Airport, and at the Oman Air MRO facility at Muscat International Airport. 

The first order is a turnkey contract to supply specialised aircraft service
systems for the Presidential Flight Hangar project at Abu Dhabi International
Airport. Under this order the Group will design, supply, install, test and
commission the Sub-freezing DX-Boost PCA system, 400Hz Converters, Pop-Up Pit
and Hatch Pit systems. 

The second landmark order is for the supply of Sub-freezing DX-Boost PCA units
and Pop-Up Pit systems for PCA and 400Hz, and includes an additional number of
Hatch Pit systems for other services, all to be installed at the MRO Facility
of Oman Air in Muscat International Airport. 

“These landmark projects are excellent references for our Sub-freezing DX-Boost
cooling technology, and further demonstrates our ability to offer all the
necessary technical expertise to deliver complex turnkey solutions to major
industry players,” says Ottonel Popesco, Cavotec CEO. 

Cavotec INET’s Sub-freezing DX-Boost systems cool aircraft quickly and
efficiently by supplying PCA at sub-freezing temperatures. The technology meets
the strict criteria and demanding environmental conditions of Muscat Airport
and Abu Dhabi Airport, where temperatures frequently exceed 45 degrees Celsius.
DX-boost PCA units enable the fast and efficient cooling of aircraft without
the use of on-board auxiliary power units, thereby reducing emissions. 

“We have been working with Cavotec since many years, mainly for aviation
fuelling and airport fuel farm projects. We are delighted to work with Cavotec
once again for a prestigious Aircraft (A380) Hangar project and to use their
expertise in delivering state-of-art technology to meet our customer’s
stringent quality and service requirements. As Amana Group increasingly focuses
on aviation and MRO projects, the long-term partnership with Cavotec is the
ideal solution to ensure future success,” says Richard Antoine Abboud, General
Manager of Amana Contracting & Steel Building Company. 

Cavotec has recently commissioned their Sub-freezing PCA System at the Boeing
MRO Facility Nagpur in India, where the Group executed a turnkey project
including the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of a
Sub-freezing PCA system, 400Hz Power system and Pop-Up Pits systems for PCA and
400Hz. This project is an industry benchmark with Cavotec’s Sub-freezing
DX-Boost PCA System delivering pre-conditioned dry air at temperatures lower
than -10°C at the Boeing MRO Hangar. 

Cavotec has worked closely with aircraft manufacturers such as Airbus for many
years on developing advanced GSE, including subfreezing PCA systems capable of
cooling large aircraft such as the Airbus A380 superjumbo quickly, cleanly and

The long-standing relationship with Larsen & Toubro has added another
highlight, with Cavotec recently having been awarded the contract to supply 108
Electrical and 400Hz Pit systems for the prestigious upcoming Midfield Terminal
Project at Abu Dhabi International Airport. 

These recent projects at Muscat Airport and Abu Dhabi Airport build on a
sequence of orders awarded to the Group over the past few months. 

These include an order from Airbus in the US, where Cavotec will supply a
complete 400Hz electrical power supply system, including converters,
distribution boards and pit systems, for the aircraft manufacturer’s new
production facility in Mobile, Alabama. The equipment will be used on the final
assembly line hangar for final phase building of the A320 short- to
medium-range passenger aircraft. Additionally in the US, Cavotec will supply a
number of 400Hz electric power supply units for Chicago O’Hare Airport’s
Terminal 5 development. 

Cavotec has also been awarded an order with Chinese aircraft manufacturer,
Shanxi, for number of pit systems and related materiel for a final assembly
line. Also in China, the Group has also been awarded a major project with
Hainan Airlines to supply 16 utility pit systems for the airline’s maintenance
hangar at Haikou Airport on Hainan Island. 

Finally, for the first phase of a new development at Moscow Domodedovo Airport,
Cavotec is supplying 19 hydrant pits along with related vault access covers and
high/low-point pit systems.
