MV8 Oman Aviation Academy

The TEX ATC MV8-30 was chosen by Dawood Contracting LLC for the new Oman Aviation Academy at Sohar Airport.




  • Year: 2022
  • Height: 33m
  • Shape: Octagonal
  • Floor Area: 28.7m²
  • Scope: Air traffic control room

The Oman Aviation Academy in Sohar chose one of TEX ATC’s standard MV8 Series control rooms for the new ATC tower.

TEX ATC drew on previous experience of successfully completed projects in Oman including those at Muscat and Thumrait, to inform glazing design and specifications suitable for the location and climate. Optional extras included lower walkway, controller consoles and heated, laminated glazing.

The project management of the installation was carried out by TEX ATC on site over a period of 9 weeks. Close collaboration with the principal contractor ensured the project was completed on time and within budget.

The MV8 Series can be supplied quicker to site compared to a bespoke design. Combined with minimal design time, this solution results in significant cost savings for the client. The MV8-30 is made to order and shipped in 3 x 40ft shipping containers. Also available as a kit-only option, the MV8-30 is supplied with a detailed assembly manual.
