Company will provide facility maintenance to the airport
Sharjah Department of Civil Aviation has announced signing an agreement with MAF Dalkia, whereby, the company will provide maintenance works to all facilities of the airport. The services will include not only multi-technical services, such as, electrical, mechanical, plumbing and civil works, but also specialised maintenance for the airfield systems and equipment like navigation aids, radio communication, airfield lighting systems and the runway civil works, the announcement confirmed.
The agreement was signed at the Department’s headquarters in the presence of HE Eng Abdulwahab Mohammed Khalfan Al Roomi, Director General of Department of Civil Aviation, Sharjah, and Alexandre Mussallam, CEO, MAF Dalkia, the announcement said.
On the occasion, Al Roomi said: “Signing the agreement reflects Sharjah International Airport’s keen interest to keep and maintain all its facilities, including service and technical facilities, and operate efficiently round the clock. No doubt, the agreement will help the airport’s Engineering Department to function properly, amidst rapidly growing movement of passengers, aircraft and airfreight and the airport’s high rates during the recent years. This requires an effective maintenance department that assumes its functions accurately and professionally.”
Al Roomi added that the agreement would be effective for three years, with annual assessment maintenance operations, along with ongoing assessment and subsequent maintenance as required.
Mussallam, expressing his views on the agreement, said: “We are pleased to sign this agreement with Sharjah International Airport, the most ancient airport in the region. We will provide our distinguished experience and services to the airport in order to maintain the airport’s leading position on the local, regional and international levels. We will perform our works to the full satisfaction of the Department, which we would like to thank for its confidence and selecting us to carry out this project.”
