Azul, the Brazilian airline, are set to begin construction of a new hangar to house their aircraft, this time at Viracopos International Airport, in Campinas / SP. The challenge faced by ACO was to offer a heavy duty drainage solution that could handle the requirements of both the exterior and interior of the hangar. The exterior has the potential for heavy rainfall and heavy air traffic, while aircraft are washed inside the hangar, which also includes a fire fighting system that can release more than 2 meters of foam.
More than 500 meters of channels from the ACO DRAIN® Monoblock line were supplied and accessories that facilitate installation and contribute to maintenance, such as access elements and sump units.
