Cavotec systems at Dubai’s dedicated A380 terminal

Our ground support systems are playing their part in Dubai Airport’s newly-opened flagship terminal: the world’s first dedicated to the Airbus A380 superjumbo.

Dubai International Airport’s Concourse A, which opened earlier this month, gives Emirates — one of the fastest-growing airlines — an additional capacity of 15 million passengers a year.

Cavotec equipment at Concourse A includes Pop-Up Pits that supply air and electrical power to aircraft. You can see pictures of these systems on our Facebook page.

Cavotec has worked with major airports in the region for many years, and is currently working on projects at several other hub airports. In December we completed the commissioning of a major application at Bahrain International Airport.

Cavotec starts shooting new company film

After weeks of careful planning, we have now started shooting our brand new company film that will provide a flavour of the technological diversity and geographical variety of our customer base.

The new film will present the Cavotec Group to customers, partners and the general public, and will replace the existing version that has served us so well in recent years.

Our first stop on the filming trip was Frankfurt Airport, where we gathered footage of our ground support equipment that serves a wide range of aircraft including the Airbus A380. After filming MoorMaster™ automated mooring units in Denmark operating on a fast ferry route, the team are headed Down Under to shoot the newest MoorMaster™ application at Port Hedland.

The final leg of the trip will take the team to the US. Here they will film several applications at ports and airports across the country, including cable reels on ship-to-shore cranes at the Port of Virginia, Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) systems at the Port of Los Angeles and more ground support equipment at Los Angeles International Airport.

We’ll be posting images, updates and anecdotes from the road on our Facebook page, with alerts on Twitter that you can find with #Cavotecfilm.
