Cavotec secures contract for Al Maktoum Airport

Global engineering group Cavotec has won a €17.5m (US$18.4m) contract with airport operator Dubai Airports to install its Pre-Conditioned Air (PCA) and 400Hz power technologies at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai, UAE. The win is one of the largest airport equipment orders in Cavotec’s history.

Cavotec and leading contractor A&P Group are to supply, install, test and commission PCA and 400Hz systems, including underground services, for more than 60 remote aircraft parking positions at the airport. Work is scheduled to begin 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.

Juergen Strommer, chief operating officer of Cavotec’s Airports & Industry business unit, said, “Dubai Airports already use Cavotec’s cutting-edge systems at Dubai International Concourse D at Terminal 1, remote aprons at Terminal 2, and concourses B and C and the EXPO remote apron at Terminal 3.

“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.”

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