Work is underway to install specially designed Cavotec Pre-Conditioned Air (PCA) systems for Dubai International Airport’s Concourse C upgrade that will rapidly cool wide-bodied aircraft up to the largest aircraft, Airbus A380 – even in hot and humid conditions common to Dubai – and thereby enhance passenger comfort and operational efficiency, and reduce environmental impact.
As the rate of passenger growth accelerates, and pressure to reduce costs and increase revenues intensifies, airports face significant operational challenges. IATA forecasts that more than 7.2 billion passengers will travel in 2035, doubling from 3.8 billion in 2016.
Join us at inter airport Europe 2017 this week, where we're demonstrating how our advanced Ground Support Equipment - including 400Hz, PCA, wet services, fuel hydrant and tank farm systems – support airports and MRO hangars worldwide to make aircraft servicing safer, cleaner, and more efficient.
Airbus has again selected Cavotec to supply innovative in-ground utility systems for several of their production facilities, including Tianjin in China, Mobile in Alabama in the US, and Hamburg in Germany, continuing a long-term relationship with Cavotec, and highlighting how Cavotec is seen as a trusted partner in the airport equipment industry and beyond.
As part of our on-going commitment to improving safety at airport gates, hangars and aprons, we are currently supporting our customers to retrofit Cavotec hydrant pit systems to meet a recent requirement announced by the Joint Inspection Group (JIG).
We’re at the seventeenth Dubai Airport Show this week, one of the world’s fastest-growing events in the airport calendar, it's also billed as the “world’s largest annual airport exhibition”.
Our innovative Cavotec 2500+ 400Hz solid state frequency converter unit continues to gain traction in the global ground support (GSE) market, with the US being the latest in a growing number of countries where the unit is safely and efficiently meeting the greater power demands of modern passenger aircraft.
Our Airports team is concluding another successful inter airport Europe which saw the launch of our new Series 2500+ frequency converter, as well as fruitful meetings with customers, suppliers and the media.
