In a series of projects worth a combined total of some EUR 3 million, we are to supply advanced ground support systems to several airports in France, Guinea, Luxembourg, Senegal’s new-build Diagne International Airport, and Doha International Airport in Qatar.
The largest of these orders is for a fuel hydrant system at the new Diagne International Airport, near the Senegalese capital Dakar. The order is a considerable achievement for the Cavotec Group, as this is the first fully integrated fuel hydrant package supplied by Cavotec Middle East in cooperation with partners. You can find full details of the project here.
The Diagne International Airport site is located 30 miles (45 kilometres) east of Dakar and replaces the existing Leopold Sedar Senghor Airport. The new airport is expected to handle some three million passengers a year.
We have also received a series of orders from several airports in France and Luxembourg. For example, we are supplying coils and crocodile units for Toulouse Blagnac Airport’s new terminal. At Nice Côte D’Azur Airport, Cavotec is supporting a retrofitting project with 11 coils for an under-bridge solution, and four coils for the airport’s A380 gate.
And in Guinea, West Africa, Cavotec has won a contract to supply extension hydrants at Conakry International Airport for global energy group Total. In Algeria, Cavotec is to supply AXA converters, hatch pits and Vdc cables and connectors, and electrical cabinets for testing and maintenance of rotary-wing aircraft.
Elsewhere, Cavotec and engineering group, Sinohydro-Gamuda-WCT Joint Venture, have signed an agreement for the delivery and installation of 18 hatch pits for a wash apron bay at Doha International Airport in Qatar. The units will connect equipment to clean aircraft at the maintenance area adjoining the Qatar Airways and Emiri hangars. The wash apron bay is designed for two A380 positions.
