Muscat International and Salalah Airport Developments

Firstco supported Ultra Electronics Airport Systems in an international project, supporting their task of supplying all airport systems for two new airport developments: Muscat International Airport and Salalah Airport, in the Sultanate of Oman.

This was a large and profitable contract for Firstco, resulting in a lengthy tendering process which together, Ultra and Firstco had worked on for over two years.

Key Achievements

There were multiple successes for Firstco within this project, many as a result of our company enagaging in a transportation project within the Middle East. However, some of the key achievements of this project were:

  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Validation of user requirements
  • Procurement and type approval management
  • Implementation management

Firstco’s Role

Firstco supported the Ultra Project Team by providing Design and Delivery Management as well as Stakeholder Engagement and Interface Management Teams for:

  • Fire & security systems
  • Active and passive LAN
  • Airport operational systems
  • Cellular and media systems
  • Other non-critical system groups

Firstco had an onsite team consisting of approximately 14 engineers (including local Omani graduates) which was led by Firstco Director Martin Parris, who was based in Oman for three years:

“This project represented a fantastic opportunity for Firstco to support Ultra’s first class product offering and provide them with the Stakeholder”
