This week we are proud to report our first airports order in Argentina with a deal to supply a range of advanced fuelling hydrants and related materiel for Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport.
One of Cavotec’s three airport units, Cavotec Dabico, in conjunction with partners, Aviation Fueling Consulting Corp, will supply 25 fuel hydrant pits and four low-point drain assemblies to Ezeiza International Airport. Low point drain pits remove non-fuel fluids and other contaminants that can accumulate in aircraft fuel pipelines.
The equipment forms a key element of a major, ongoing modernisation project at the airport announced in 2007. The programme, that includes a new terminal building, and a control tower, is due for completion in 2010/11. Located some 20 miles (35 kilometres) south west of Buenos Aires, Ezeiza International Airport handled more than eight million passengers in 2009.
