Cavotec Wins Dubai Order

Global engineering group and airports systems integrator Cavotec has won a multimillion-dirham order for the new Emirates Airlines A380 terminal (Concourse 3) at Dubai International Airport.
The contract for 58 pre-conditioned air systems and 400Hz pop-up pit systems was awarded by construction contractor ALEC.  Delivery is due to start later this year with commissioning to follow in 2012.  The news was announced as Cavotec participated for the eleventh consecutive time at the Dubai Airport Show 2011.

Of the 20 stands in Concourse 3, 18 will be built for use with the ‘super-jumbo’ Airbus A380.  When it opens in 2012, Dubai’s Concourse 3 will increase the airport’s capacity to more than 70 million passengers a year and will be the world’s largest A380 terminal.
Cavotec’s managing director and regional manager for the Middle East and India, Juergen Strommer, said: “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.”
Cavotec systems are already installed in Concourses 1 and 2 at Dubai.
