back to the overview


In addition to the experience gained in the construction of kerosene tank systems, an increasing number of references have been collected in recent years in the construction of aircraft de-icing-agent systems.

In just a few months, Göhler Anlagentechnik, in cooperation with high-performance subcontractors, built the largest and most modern de-icing agent system in Europe at Frankfurt Airport. The short construction time was made possible by the innovative modular technology in self-supporting design, without system-specific building and civil engineering work. The total storage volume of 540,000 liters in 18 double-walled containers can be moved to another de-icing point at any time.

Capacity can be expanded at short notice without major installation work. Most of the system components are prefabricated at the factory, reducing the usual obstacles to day-to-day airport operations to a minimum.
