Cavotec wins EUR 17.5M order for Dubai’s new gateway airport

Global engineering group Cavotec has won a breakthrough order for its
innovative Pre-Conditioned Air (PCA) and 400Hz power technologies for Dubai’s
new gateway airport, Al Maktoum International. The EUR 17.5 million order is
one of the largest airport equipment project wins in the Group’s history. 

Cavotec and leading contractor A&P Group of Companies are to supply, install,
test and commission PCA and 400Hz systems, including underground services, for
more than 60 remote aircraft parking positions at Al Maktoum. Deliveries are
due to start in the second quarter of this year, with the first phase of
commissioning planned for the third quarter. The project consists of a large
number of Multiple Aircraft Ramp System (MARS) stands, where the supplied
equipment will service all types of aircraft, including the Airbus A380. 

“Dubai Airports already use Cavotec’s cutting-edge systems at Dubai
International (DXB) Concourse D at Terminal 1, remote aprons at Terminal 2, and
concourses B and C and the EXPO remote apron at Terminal 3,” says Juergen
Strommer, Chief Operating Officer of Cavotec’s Airports & Industry business

“PCA technologies play a pivotal role in cooling aircraft in hot environments
such as Dubai, and the Cavotec units in this order will enable Al Maktoum
International to achieve the highest levels of service, readiness and passenger
comfort,” Strommer adds. 

“We are pleased to have entered into an agreement with our reliable partners
Cavotec, to support us on yet another important, extremely fast-track and
challenging project, and rely on them to perform as on earlier occasions,” says
Yiannis Constantinou, CEO of A&P Group of Companies. 

Under the contract, Cavotec will supply state of the art 400Hz converters, and
its Super Cool DX PCA technology as part of the expansion project at Al
Maktoum, also known as Dubai World Central (DWC). 

“This is a milestone project for the Cavotec group, in terms of its scope and
technological characteristics. It is also a testament to the excellent,
long-term relationships we have with customers and suppliers,” says Gary
Matthews, Cavotec Market Unit Director, Airports. 

The remote apron project is the gateway for the upcoming Al Maktoum
International Airport, which once completed is expected to handle some 160
million passengers a year, making it the world’s largest airport. 

Previously, Cavotec was awarded another turnkey contract to design, supply,
install, test and commission Super Cool DX PCA units at Dubai International
Airport’s Concourse C. 

Cavotec is a manufacturer and leading systems integrator of advanced ground
support equipment in the global airports sector, with more than 40,000 Cavotec
aircraft service systems currently installed worldwide.
