Pop-up supply pits for Tianjin airbus assembly line

: 17 April, 2008  (Application Story)
The Tianjin Airbus joint venture company has ordered 12 Cavotec Fladung Pop-Up Pits to service aircraft at its A320 assembly line at the Chinese port city of Tianjin, southwest of Beijing.
We are delighted that Tianjin Airbus has selected Cavotec's Pop-Up Pits for its aircraft supply requirements. Our aim is to be local everywhere, and this project shows how Cavotec can work closely with customers to obtain the best possible results, says Kai Fladung Cavotec Fladung's Sales Director.

The contract follows an initial order for six Pop-Up systems at Tianjin. The assembly line is a joint venture between Airbus and Tianjin Zhongtian Aviation Industry Investment Company, a consortium of the China Aviation Corporation and the Tianjin Bonded Zone Investment Company. Airbus holds a 51 percent stake in the project.

Production of the A320 is scheduled to start at Tianjin in August this year.

Cavotec's Pop-Up Pits supply aircraft with power, water and pre-conditioned air, eliminating the need for large trucks, heavy diesel generators, cables and hoses that typically cover much of the area around parked aircraft. The units emerge from pits embedded in the tarmac and retract underground when refuelling is complete ? leaving the apron free from supply vehicles.
