Postby Greg on Thu Jan 02, 2020 2:43 pm

Some interesting purchases from the December 5, 2019 DFW Airport Board meeting:

• $4,650,941.00 to replace the Airfield Operations Area (AOA) gates. This action will provide for additional security enhancements to the AOA by replacing ingress/egress gates and controllers at various locations along the airfield perimeter. Existing AOA gates and controllers are at the end of their rated service life and will be replaced with crash barrier gate systems that are more reliable and maintainable.

• $4,219,776.00 for four electric COBUS buses, four charging stations, and the one-year lease of two COBUS buses. Purchase four electric COBUS buses for the Airport's Parking / Transportation Business Unit. Purchase four external quick charging units (60kW). Lease two COBUS buses to support summer 2020 hardstand operations prior to expected delivery of electric COBUS in November 2020. This purchase order will support the additional hardstand operations, bringing the existing hardstand busing fleet up to a total of 11 COBUS.

• $269,887.00 to provide the removal, transportation and disposal of spent deicing fluid used in the deicing of aircraft during freezing and wet weather.

Regarding the 21.56 acres American Airlines will lease for its new flight kitchen:

• American Airlines, Inc. (AA) will lease under a 40 year agreement approximately 21.56 acres of land in the southwest campus of the Airport for the development and construction of a flight kitchen facility and other leasehold improvements to support its operation at DFW.

• AA will construct all improvements including infrastructure, systems, flight kitchen facility, paved roadways, driveways, truck docks, parking areas, fencing and associated facilities, fixtures and equipment, landscaping and irrigation, and will incorporate all applicable Board standards.
