Cavotec outlines growth plan for aviation industry
Manama, May 8, 2011
Cavotec Middle East said it has identified operational efficiency and the environment as top priorities for Middle East airports at the Airport Show 2011.
The Dubai-based company is the regional sales office of the Cavotec global engineering group.
'The Middle East's burgeoning aviation sector is becoming increasingly concerned about improving productivity and implementing environmentally sustainable technologies, a trend that highlights the region's development as one of the most sophisticated aviation hotspots across the globe,' said Cavotec ME managing director Juergen Strommer.
'We see our customers all over the region seeking to constantly enhance safety, efficiency and productivity. The demand for reliable, flexible and sustainable solutions illustrates a developing trend here.'
'In the past, there was a tendency to install systems used elsewhere in the world in mature markets such as Europe.'
'Increasingly, however, we clearly see the Middle East as becoming the first region in the world to adopt new designs and products based on many parameters to suit local weather conditions,' Strommer said.
'A classic example is the newly developed Cavotec Pre-Conditioned Air system (PCAir). This technology is used to supply cold, dry air to aircraft at sub-zero temperatures.
'Temperatures as low as minus 20¡C (for dry air) are necessary to cool A380 (Code F) aircraft during the summers in the Gulf, a requirement that Cavotec's PCAir system alone is capable of meeting.
'Bahrain Airport Company, following comprehensive product studies and analyses, chose to implement this solution. We see similar interest from other major hubs in the region,' Strommer said.
Another positive indication that the region's aviation sector is blossoming into a global leader is the continued expansion among airports in the Middle East.-TradeArabia News Service
