Cavotec has secured a contract with the new Sohar Airport in the Sultanate of Oman for the supply of a combination of aviation fuelling systems and equipment.

Under the terms of the contract, Cavotec will deliver fuel hydrant pits and isolation valve pits, as well as truck unloading skids and a fuel flow control valve instrumentation package. 

The order makes Sohar Airport the first airport in the region to include the complete Cavotec portfolio of fuelling components and equipment.

“This latest deal for Cavotec highlights the combined strength of our individual Airports engineering divisions, whose highly-specialised technologies for various airport requirements synergise to create end-to-end solutions that guarantee streamlined operations, reduced costs, improved safety and minimised carbon emissions,” comments Juergen Strommer, Managing Director at Cavotec Middle East.

Close cooperation and engineering coordination with the main contractor along with Cegelec, helped ensured the contract win for Cavotec. Furthermore, oil companies’ acceptance of Cavotec innovations assisted in speeding up the approval process. Deliveries have commenced and the installations are due for completion by the end of the third quarter of this year.

As one of the fastest-growing industrial hubs of the Sultanate of Oman, Sohar’s new airport will aid in the development of the region, and is foreseen to welcome an increasing amount of traffic from international business travellers to arrive directly to the city, which houses some of the Middle East’s largest refineries.

The introduction of Cavotec technologies in this budding aviation centre ensures that the airport operates optimally in terms of energy-efficiency and passenger, worker and equipment safety.

Cavotec is a leading global engineering group, developing innovative technologies that enable the maritime, airports, mining and tunnelling, and general industry sectors to operate productively and sustainably.
