Haulotte plays key role in Jeddah airport project

Haulotte Group, a French aerial work platform manufacturer with key operations in the region, said it has deployed its fleet of hitech equipment and machineries for Saudi government's ambitious King Abdul-Aziz International Airport project in Jeddah.

The equipment, including Haulotte Diesel & Electric Scissors, were supplied through Roots Group Arabia and United gulf Equipment Rentals, the partners of Haulotte Group in the region.

The King Abdul-Aziz International Airport is being developed by General Authority of Civil Aviation to increase the passenger footfall from 13 million to 80 million passengers.

The project is being developed in three phases with the first one to be completed by the mid of 2017.

The new airport, which will come up on a 105-sq-km area, is considered one of the most important modern landmarks in the city.

It won an award for the world's best airport engineering project at the 8th Annual Global Infrastructure Leadership Forum in 2015 in terms of specifications and modern technology, said a statement from Haulotte.

The importance of this project lies in its special architectural design which is performed through high international standards to be one of the best sustainable airports in Middle East where energy and environmental issues were highly considered.

The design of the project is inspired by the Islamic architecture with a modern way and it is in line with the Saudi Arabian environment.

The palette of colors, range of materials and textures reflect the natural desert, beauty of clear blue skies and stony desert colors, complemented throughout with geometric patterns, stated the French company.

"The innovative technology of Haulotte Big Booms was the best solution for one of the world’s most developed airport construction site where they are used for building and finishing the modern high tech elevations," said a company spokesman.

"The Telescopic HT43RTJPro which is well known for its rough terrain capabilities and diesel articulated HA41RTJPro with its 360 continuous turntable rotation ability were utilised to reach the difficult working areas in top of the elevations," he explained.

Several numbers of Haulotte Diesel & Electric Scissors have been used in the interior jobs. H18SX and H15SX are perfectly up to these tasks with their ergonomic and spacious designed platform thanks to double extension, said the spokesman.

The superior 4WD with hydraulic differential lock greatly improves the traction on all grounds and the heavy duty Compact 8 was used for the electrical installations, false ceiling, fire sprinkle installation and interior design of the airport, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
