Cavotec wins airport equipment orders worth more than EUR 11M

Cavotec has won a number of orders for its innovative aircraft ground support
systems for applications in Australia, China, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the
US, the largest of which is for Hong Kong International Airport. The orders,
all received in 4Q16, have a combined value of more than EUR 11 million. 

The largest of these orders is for a substantial number of ground support
systems for Hong Kong International Airport Midfield Apron Project. Cavotec
will be supplying 400Hz converters, 400Hz electrical pit systems, deck loader
power supply pits, fuel vault access covers and fuel hydrant pits. Deliveries
are scheduled during 2017 and 2018. 

The Midfield Apron Project is part of the Airport Authority of Hong Kong (AAHK)
expansion plan to meet increased passenger demand and allowing it to continue
its role as one of the primary aviation hubs in the Asia-Pacific region. 

“AAHK is a long standing Cavotec customer, and we’re delighted to see our
capacity to manage large, complex projects once again confirmed by this order,”
says Gustavo Miller, Cavotec COO APAC. 

The ground support equipment order follows a separate order that Cavotec
received in 3Q16 for fuelling equipment for the same project. 

Among the other orders received in 4Q16, Cavotec won orders to supply
pre-conditioned air (PCA) and 400Hz electrical power supply pit systems for 15
aircraft stands at Rome Fiumicino International Airport, another long standing
Cavotec customer. The order is part of the third phase of a major project
involving two new terminals and several remote aircraft parking stands. 

Also in 4Q16, Cavotec has won a number of service, equipment and system orders
for a variety of aircraft gate and maintenance hangar applications in locations
such as Australia, Colombia, Germany, and the US. The orders include PCA units,
400Hz converters, utility pits, fuel hydrant pit systems.

the global airports sector. Its in-ground technologies minimise tarmac
congestion, improve operational efficiency and reduce environmental impact at
