Leading global engineering group Cavotec is to supply a complete air and electrical power solution for a United Airlines wide-body aircraft hangar at Washington Dulles International Airport – an order that follows similar successes in both the US and Asian aviation markets in recent months.
“Working closely with the client and our partners on this project, we have designed a comprehensive solution that meets the unique demands of this application,” says Gary Matthews, Managing Director Cavotec Inet.
Under the terms of the contract, Cavotec will design, manufacture and install 400Hz motor generators, associated pit assemblies, and pre-conditioned air units according to specific design requirements.
The order also includes jet engine air start equipment, and hoses that connect aircraft to pits assemblies. Cavotec has also been contracted to supply additional services such as engineering support and site testing.
Delivery is scheduled to start in May 2013.
The equipment will be installed in a wide body hangar to include the new Boeing 787 aircraft. Cavotec has designed and installed similar systems for Airbus A380 superjumbo aircraft at several airports in the Middle East.
