CEM Systems, part of Tyco Security Products, said it has been awarded the contract to secure the new Concourse 3 at the Terminal 3 in Dubai International Airport.
The Concourse 3, which will take a similar shape to Concourse 2, is predicted to handle 15 million passengers annually.
It is being constructed to accommodate 20 aircraft stands, of which 18 will be exclusively for use by the Airbus A380-800, and the remaining 2 for the Boeing 777.
The renowned CEM AC2000 security management system will be installed to ensure the highest level of security, said a company official.
“Being awarded the contract to secure Dubai International Airport is a significant win for CEM in the Middle East” said Philip Verner, regional sales director EMEA, CEM Systems.
“Dubai International Airport joins some of the world’s most prestigious aviation sites by selecting the CEM AC2000 system to secure, Concourse 3, Terminal 3,” Verner added.
Work on Concourse 3 began in 2008 and it is expected to open in 2012, said a DEM statement.
