Madrid, June 30, 2017.- Eurofinsa, a leading Spanish business group in the development of public works, has been chosen by GLOBALIA for the construction of its new aircraft maintenance hangar at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport, which will serve The modern fleet B787 long-haul airline Air Europa.
The project was designed by the engineering company Assad Development, has a budget that amounts to 21.7 million euros, and has a lead time of 16 months. The design includes the large hangar for the aircraft shelter and the construction of an annex perimeter building for workshops, warehouses, laboratories and engineering offices.
The building has been designed according to the international standard of design of aircraft maintenance hangars fulfilling all the standards demanded by the different regulatory organisms. The incorporation of the most advanced technology in the field of MRO installations has been one of the essential guidelines, as well as the achievement of maximum energy efficiency and optimum conditions of work (safety, ergonomics and productivity). Of equal importance has been the objective to erect a technological complex according to the respect for the environment.
The shelter area inside the hangar will be 11,410 m2 and will be equipped to carry out the maintenance of the aircraft of the latest generation Boeing 787 as well as the Airbus A330 models. Given its dimensions, simultaneous work on three wide-body or six narrow-body aircraft can be carried out. To support the maintenance, the attached building will have 9,000 m2 of surface distributed in two heights. The project includes the execution of a platform for the parking of aircraft to complete a total of 22,424 m2 of plot.
The shelter surface of the new hangar will have dimensions of 140 m of structural light x 81.5 m of depth reaching a height of 35 m. It has been solved by a stereo structure composed of bars and spheres dimensioned mechanically and geometrically in order to confer a resistance and lightness much superior to conventional structures.
The hangar will be capable of repairing and maintaining the described aircraft, including all its equipment and components, allowing to carry out Type A, C and D revisions, as well as to develop various special activities (non-destructive tests, weight and centering, etc.), engineering and training activities of aeronautical maintenance technicians.
With this project, GLOBALIA will count on a maintenance center at the forefront of technology.
