Orders for in-ground systems from North American airports

More positive news from our Airports Market Unit: this time from Canada and the States; with several orders for our in-ground systems from airports including Chicago O’Hare and Edmonton International.

Due for delivery in August, Cavotec will supply isolation valve pit assemblies, fuel hydrant pit systems, a high point vent pit assembly and two low point drain pit assemblies for O’Hare.

And we are delivering two refueling pit systems to Hartsfield-Jackson International in Atlanta, Georgia. Handling more than 90 million passengers last year, Hartsfield-Jackson claims to be one of the world’s busiest airports. Elsewhere, Cavotec we are also supplying hatch systems and fuel hydrant pit assemblies, fuel low point drain pit systems, one fuel high point vent pit assembly and six hydrant valves to Anchorage International in Alaska.

Across the border in Alberta, we are delivering a range of fuel systems to Edmonton International Airport, where the equipment will be used for Alberta’s Terminal Express and South Apron Expansion programmes.

Also in Canada, Cavotec recently completed an order for 12 refueling pit systems and related materiel for the Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Trenton, in Ontario.

Strategic transport aircraft, such as the C-130 Hercules, tactical transport and VIP aircraft operate from CFB Trenton. The base also coordinates search and rescue operations in central and Arctic Canada.

These orders continue a strong year for our Airports Market Unit – a trend we hope will continue in the coming months.
