08.07.2011 New Equipment for Winter Season

Sarajevo International Airport has added to its existing motor pool the equipment being used for cleaning of airport surfaces in winter conditions.  New brushes and ploughs of the series RSC 400 of a reputable Norwegian company ØVERAASEN, the leading world manufacturer of this kind of machinery.  

Together with the existing machinery and proved skills of winter team staff at Sarajevo International Airport, the new equipment is a guarantee for increased safety level during the forthcoming winter season. 

 

 

At the moment the series RSC 400 is the most sophisticated and efficacious equipment for cleaning of maneuvering surfaces whose technical characteristics (like cleaning capacity of the brushes of 330 000 m²/hr, air nozzles of 40 000 m³/hr and brush range of 5500 mm), as well as its compact design speak well for themselves.
