These machines are used by the Facility Department and E&M Department for façade cleaning and maintenance of the T2 at Mumbai International Airport.

After the technical site survey and noting critical measurements and thereafter, post several gruelling rounds of technical discussions with the Project team, machines meeting the customer’s specifications and application requirements were shortlisted.
Despite fierce competition from major players like JLG/Nifty, GVK-MIAL chose Gemini & Haulotte as Preferred Partner, awarding the contract to Gemini in May 2013.
The machine deliveries were completed in end 2013 /early 2014 and post deliveries during the commissioning period, Gemini Product support team conducted several detailed theoretical and practical training sessions for the facility contractors for proper and optimum utilization of the machines.
