Fokker Services Group announced during the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) that it has inaugurated its new wide-body hangar in Hoogerheide, Netherlands.
The hangar is an impressive 87-metre long, 86-metre wide and 27-metre high facility and can accommodate various widebody aircraft such as A330, A350, B787 and B777.
Fokker Services Group (FSG) says the facility will make a crucial contribution to the company’s long-term objective as market demand for completion services continues to surge.
According to FSG, the company made sustainability a top priority in this project, resulting in a completely electrically powered new hangar and the installation of an environmentally friendly geothermal energy system. Also, by the end of 2023, the company will have installed photovoltaic solar power capacity on the rooftop of the hangar, reducing the dependency on external energy sources.
Roland van Dijk, CEO of FSG commented: “We’re in a relentless pursuit of global excellence with strong focus on sustainability, of which this new hangar is a key milestone. Our cutting-edge technology, engineering skills, and centennial history are putting us in an uncontested position to become the partner of choice for the wide-body airframe maintenance and completions & conversions market”.
