Cavotec Middle East has inked a deal worth AED15m to supply the new Muscat airport project with 95 pop-up pit systems.

The systems are used for storing cables, PCA hoses, potable water hoses and technical services beneath the tarmac apron.

When the aircraft is in the parking position or maintenance hangar, the pop-up system is deployed and raised to working level. Upon disconnection, Cavotec's pop-up pits automatically retract to surface level.

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.

Similar systems are in use around the GCC at airports in Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, and now Muscat.
