Abu Dhabi Airport Services Selects the proveo Airport Visualiser

OAKLAND, Calif. & FRANKFURT, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zebra Enterprise Solutions, a division of Zebra Technologies (Nasdaq: ZBRA) announces the signing of a major contract with Abu Dhabi Airport Services (ADAS).

ADAS provides ground services at the airports of Abu Dhabi and Al-Ain and at the airports of Al-Bateen, Delma and Al-Dhafra, all located in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. A trial project for some fifty units of ground support equipment (GSE) in 2008 very quickly made clear that ADAS could benefit enormously from the Airport Visualiser. The solution helped ADAS identify substantial savings and facilitated an optimization of ADAS’ operations, including improved safety standards.

These conclusive results clearly convinced ADAS of the benefits of a GSE telematics system and they issued a tender in October 2008. Subsequently ADAS has now selected Zebra Enterprise Solutions to roll out the Visualiser solution to their entire fleet of GSE, amounting to a total of 472 units. Fifty of these units belong to Abu Dhabi’s in-flight catering company.

“We have seen immediate benefits from the day the trial project went live. The information available through the Airport Visualiser supports operational and strategic decisions. Once the Visualiser solution has been installed on all our equipment it will allow us to make smarter procurement plans, have more accurate maintenance schedules and drive efficiency and productivity gains,” says Richard Backhouse, Assistant General Manager Strategic Planning, at Abu Dhabi Airport Services.

The project started in January 2009 and is due to be completed by March 2010. With the aid of the Airport Visualiser, ADAS will be able to exactly trace their GSE on the apron in real-time and obtain information on engine status and hours as well as the operational status of their GSE. From the modular Airport Visualiser solution, ADAS has, amongst others, opted for the Access Control function that allows for precise user identification and thus stops unauthorized use of GSE and helps to reduce damage done to the equipment.

The Visualiser solution will provide operators with information on the fuel level of the GSE. This leads to an optimized use of material and man power, as only GSE that actually need to be refueled are taken out of the service. Last but not least, ADAS will streamline their maintenance processes by switching from time to engine hour based maintenance, supported by Zebra Enterprise Solution’s Maintenance Forecasting function.

Jens Roder, Zebra Enterprise Solution’s Head of Projects for the Middle Eastern region comments: “I am delighted that we can start working on this project. From day one, the commitment and enthusiasm that ADAS demonstrated was evident and impressive. We are pleased that the remarkable results of a pilot installation convinced ADAS to enter into a full-fledged cooperation with Zebra Enterprise Solutions, further strengthening Zebra Enterprise Solution’s impressive presence in the Middle Eastern region.”
