Boschung delivers 12 winter maintenance vehicles to Dalian Zhoushuizi Airport in China
The Boschung Group in Payerne, Switzerland, a worldwide leading provider of surface condition management, today announces the delivery of a total of 12 winter maintenance vehicles to Dalian Zhoushuizi International Airport (IATA code: DLC).
The 10 Jetbroom snow removal vehicles and 2 Airport De-icers join a total of 18 jetbrooms, 2 de-icing vehicles, 1 Pony multipurpose carrier and an ice early-warning system (AWIS) from Boschung are now in use at Dalian Airport.
The Chinese port city of Dalian on the Yellow Sea has an important aviation hub with its Dalian Zhoushuizi airport. Flights to and from Japan, Korea and Russia as well as numerous domestic flights are handled here.
Dalian has a continental climate influenced by the monsoon, with humid summers and cold winters. During the cold months, the average temperature drops to below zero with considerable precipitation, so the airport has to provide the necessary capacity for winter maintenance.
Dalian Airport, the oldest customer in China, has been using Boschung’s Surface Condition Management since 1996. This system provides for the rapid clearing of snow and ice from airport
operating areas through the interaction of stationary systems and mobile emergency vehicles.
This concept has proven itself over the last few years, which is why Dalian’s airport operating company again decided last year to purchase 10 compact Jetbrooms and 2 special vehicles for de-icing runways. In total, 18 jetbrooms, 2 de-icing vehicles, 1 pony equipment carrier and 1 Boschung ice early-warning system are in use at Dalian Airport.
Boschung develops and produces vehicles and equipment for the cleaning and maintenance of operational surfaces. After continuous growth, the Boschung Group today has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Austria, Hungary, Scandinavia, United Kingdom, China, Russia and the USA. In many other countries, the Group is present by a network of distributors and partners.
For the three main business areas of airports, highways and roads, and town and municipality, Boschung offers tailor-made solutions for the assessment, treatment and management of operating surfaces. Depending on the task and the project, various systems developed by Boschung are used, such as ice early-warning systems, sweepers, snow plows, spreaders, de-icers, multi-purpose vehicles, fixed automatic spray systems and management information systems.
