At Rajiv Gandhi Hyderabad International airport, Cavotec is involved in a project to expand the airport’s cargo apron.
This work will also include the modernisation of four remote cargo aircraft stands. The group will deliver, install and commission 180kVA 400Hz electrical power converters, 400Hz hatch pits from Cavotec Fladung and supply 50Hz and 400 Hz cables. This is the very first time that Cavotec has supplied aircraft electrical converter systems to the Indian market.
Both the projects at Hyderabad airport are scheduled for commissioning in October this year. This is the latest phase of the airport’s extensive modernisation programme that will see another 12 positions delivered in 2013.
“This is our first order in India, not only for Cavotec INET converter systems, but also for Cavotec Fladung pit units. We anticipate further opportunities for similar orders as this sector resumes an upswing in activity,” explains Nicklas Pihl, Managing Director Cavotec India.
The most recent figures published by Hyderabad International show that the airport handled some 76m passengers between April 2010 and March 2011, making it India’s sixth busiest airport.
