Cooperating in the Battle against Snow & Ice

When the winter flight schedule goes into effect as usual at the end of October, wintry weather will probably not be far behind.

Among other measures, four new vehicles for the runway fleet have been purchased in 2014.

More than 3,400 hp to Combat the Snow

Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH will have these four new sweeper-blowers ready for deployment this year. Each of the vehicles has two engines with an output of 428 hp each — one engine to drive the clearance vehicle and its weight of about 21 tonnes and a second engine to drive the 6.3-metre-long brush and jet nozzle with an air flow of 10 cubic metres a second.
