GAUSSIN announced earlier this month an order by Qatar Airways Cargo for 6 AMDT with a preferential right for 50 additional units.
This order is the result of close collaboration for more than a year between technical and operation teams of QATAR AIRWAYS CARGO, QATAR AVIATION SERVICES (Ground Handling subsidiary of Qatar Airways Group) and GAUSSIN to jointly develop innovative, efficient, intelligent and environmentally friendly solutions, in line with Qatar National Vision 2030.
Powered by lithium metal polymer batteries capable of operating in high temperatures, the AMDT is specifically designed for use in Middle East weather conditions. The state-of-the-art equipment includes integrated weigh scales enabling the weight of pallets to be checked against the tag weight, in line with Qatar Airways Cargo’s focus on maintaining safety and security within its operations.
Capable of operating both inside and outside of the Cargo Terminal within minimal space, the AMDT will reduce the normal footprint required for manoeuvring, resulting in additional storage space and ensuring effective readiness of all cargo to be loaded onto aircrafts.
The AMDTs are planned to be assembled and maintained in Qatar, at the QFZ (Qatar Free Zone) industrial site, supporting the growth and development of Qatar’s economy.
