Cavotec Reports Turkish Progress

Airport systems manufacturer Cavotec MSL has recorded a series of ground support equipment orders from three Turkish airports in recent months.  The deals will see the delivery of hydrant pit systems to Sabiha Gökçen, Antalya and Istanbul Atatürk airports.
The largest of the three orders is the previously announced agreement with Sabiha Gökçen International.  Under the deal, Cavotec is delivering 112 fuel hydrant pit systems and isolation valve chamber covers.
Located some 20 miles (30km) southeast of the Turkish capital Istanbul, the former military airfield is named after the world’s first female fighter pilot.
Antalya Airport, situated on Turkey’s south coast, has ordered 100 hydrant pit systems and ten hi/low point drain pit assemblies.  Low point drain pits are designed to remove non-fuel fluids and other contaminants that can accumulate in aircraft fuel pipelines, high point vent pits remove air from the system.
Cavotec will also supply 30 hydrant pit systems, six hi/low point pits and four access covers to Istanbul Atatürk Airport.  Deliveries are scheduled for completion in June 2009.
