It says the orders have come from Australia, China, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the US, the largest of which is for Hong Kong International Airport where it will provide a range of systems connected to the gateway's Midfield Apron Project.
These include the supply of 400Hz converters, 400Hz electrical pit systems, deck loader power supply pits, fuel vault access covers and fuel hydrant pits. Deliveries are scheduled during 2017 and 2018.
The Midfield Apron Project is part of the Airport Authority of Hong Kong's expansion plans to ensure that the airport is able to meet future demand and continue its role as one of the primary aviation hubs in the Asia-Pacific region.
“AAHK is a long standing Cavotec customer, and we’re delighted to see our capacity to manage large, complex projects once again confirmed by this order,” says Gustavo Miller, Cavotec COO APAC.
The ground support equipment order follows a separate order that Cavotec received from AAHK in the third quarter of 2016 for fuelling equipment for the same project.
