London Luton Airport, currently the subject of a planned £110million redevelopment, is using a Street King 660 truck mounted sweeper from Aebi Schmidt, to maintain the airport’s terminal frontage, car parks and roadways as part of a move to improve the appearance and image of the airport from a user perspective.
Head of Airside, Liam Bolger, who has total responsibility for all airside operations at LLA, including runway inspections, stand planning, summer and winter operations and all safety aspects, said: “We have a relationship going back almost 20 years with Aebi Schmidt and already use one of their runway sweepers and a Swingo. We wanted a medium-size sweeper that was manoeuvrable, easy to operate and which looked good around the front of the airport from a passenger point of view.”
Launched last summer, the Street King is designed to fit any standard two-axle sweeper chassis. According to the company it is also operator friendly due to the ES control panel which, through a 7in touch screen, is easy to use, intuitive and reduces training to a minimum.
