Global engineering group, Cavotec MSL, has secured an order for the delivery of 53 integrated ground support systems and associated equipment with Saudi Oger, one of the major construction companies in Saudi Arabia.
“Cavotec’s range of ground support equipment offers operators a way to reduce their environmental impact, and improve their operational efficiency,” says Cavotec CEO, Ottonel Popesco.
The order includes 53 in-ground pit systems, of which five are pop-up pits — units that emerge from the tarmac when required, and retract flush with the apron surface after use — and 24 converters, and associated materiel.
The systems will be installed in two aircraft hangars in the Saudi capital Riyadh, and the coastal city of Jeddah.
Cavotec’s in-ground systems supply aircraft with fuel, power, water and pre-conditioned air, eliminating the need for service vehicles, diesel generators, cables and hoses that typically cover much of the area around parked aircraft.
