Cavotec Wins Multimillion Dirham Order For Advanced Ground Support Equipment At Dubai International Airport’s Dedicated Emirates A380 Terminal
(31 May 2011)


The engineering company has been awarded a multimillion dirham contract by leading construction contractor ALEC to supply, supervise installation and commissioning of 58 Cavotec pre-conditioned air (PCAir) and 400Hz power Pop-Up pit systems at Dubai International Airport’s new Concourse 3. Delivery is due to start in Q3 this year, with commissioning planned for 2012.

This major announcement comes during Cavotec Middle East’s 11th participation in the Dubai Airport Show 2011, where the company has exhibited annually since the show’s inception in 2000. This year, Cavotec is showcasing the company’s latest innovations in ground support equipment solutions for airports at the trade exhibition from May 31 to June 2, 2011 at Stand CD-9.

The units are designed for use with many aircraft types, especially for the superjumbo Airbus A380. Eighteen of Concourse 3’s 20 stands will be built for use with the superjumbo, making it the world’s largest A380 terminal.
“This exciting project illustrates Cavotec’s growing role as a trusted partner and systems integrator in the Middle East airports market and the airports sector as a whole. We look forward to continue our close cooperation with our partners on this project in the months ahead,” says Ottonel Popesco, Cavotec CEO.

Concourse 3 is scheduled to open in 2012. Once complete, Dubai International will cater to more than 70 million passengers a year, helping to support the expected growth in Dubai’s air traffic for the foreseeable future.

The dedicated Emirates terminal – Terminal 3 – is the centrepiece of Dubai International Airport’s current development programme. At over 1,500,000 m2 (370 acres), the terminal building is the world’s largest. It has an annual capacity of 43 million passengers.

“Our partnership with Dubai International Airport, Emirates Airlines and ALEC serves as an excellent reference as we continue to grow in the region and elsewhere,” notes Juergen Strommer, Managing Director and Regional Manager Middle East & India.

Cavotec and Dubai International Airport have a long and successful relationship built over the past 17 years. Cavotec equipment is already installed in Concourse 1 while Cavotec’s state of the art in-ground Pop-Up systems serve the airport’s Concourse 2.

This project follows several encouraging developments in the Middle East market, where Cavotec has received orders for more than 100 fuelling systems at airports in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Oman in the past 12 months.
Cavotec’s product range in the airports sector includes pop-up pit and tunnel utility systems that supply parked aircraft with water, fuel, power and pre-conditioned air. The company’s Pop-up systems enable airports to reduce their use of mobile diesel-driven equipment, increase operational efficiency, creating cleaner air and a clearer tarmac apron.
