Cavotec wins $11.6m airport equipment deals

ZURICH, December 1, 2016

Switzerland-based Cavotec, a global engineering group, has won a number of orders, worth over €11 million ($11.67 million), for its innovative aircraft ground support systems for applications in Australia, China, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the US.

The largest of these orders is for a substantial number of ground support systems for Hong Kong International Airport Midfield Apron Project, said a statement from Cavotec.

The company 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, it said.

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, it added.

Gustavo Miller, chief operating officer - Asia Pacific (APAC), Cavotec, said: “AAHK is our long standing customer, and we’re delighted to see our capacity to manage large, complex projects once again confirmed by this order.”

The ground support equipment order follows a separate order that Cavotec received in the third quarter of 2016 for fuelling equipment for the same project.

Among the other orders received in the fourth quarter of 2016, 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, said a statement from the company.

Also in the fourth quarter of this year, Cavotec 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, it said.

Cavotec is a leading systems integrator of advanced ground support equipment in the global airports sector. Its in-ground technologies minimise tarmac congestion, improve operational efficiency and reduce environmental impact at terminals, remote stands and hangars at commercial and military applications worldwide. There are currently some 40,000 Cavotec aircraft pit systems installed worldwide, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
