Warsaw Chopin Airport has invested in six vehicles designed for surface de-icing at the start of the new winter operations season.
The technical services at the airport have the most modern and the biggest Dammann sprinkling machine in Poland. The machine with 40-metre wide arms can cover the entire working width of the runway surface during one passage, without the necessity to refill the de-icing fluid.
For cleaning of the aprons three JetBroom machines are equipped with a plough, a brush between the axles of a vehicle and a device for chemicals distribution. In addition on the aprons plough installed on trucks and supplementary machines for the surface de-icing, chemicals distribution are in use.
From mid-October technical services have been working in full readiness using a 12-hour roster.
