The Cavotec global engineering group has won a breakthrough order for electrical converter systems at Rajiv Gandhi Hyderabad International Airport, India, and a major order for advance ground support equipment at Memphis International Airport, USA.
At Hyderabad, Cavotec is involved in a project to expand the airport’s cargo apron and the modernisation of four remote cargo aircraft stands. It will deliver, install and commission 180kVA 400Hz electrical power converters, 400Hz hatch pits from Cavotec Fladung, and supply 50Hz and 400Hz cables.
Nicklas Pihl, Managing Director of Cavotec India, commented: “This is our first order in India, not only for Cavotec INET converter systems, but also for Cavotec Fladung pit units. We anticipate further opportunities for similar orders as this sector resumes an upswing in activity.”
Meanwhile in Memphis, the company will supply fuel hydrants, vault access covers and valve isolation chambers for aircraft stands. The project is divided into five phases and the order will be delivered throughout the year.
