THE PROJECT

In October 1994 we signed an agreement with Rome Airport in Italy to handle the supply of 15 passenger boarding bridges, 10 of the Apron Drive 2C-type (two increasing bodies) and 3C-type (three increasing bodies) and the remaining five of the Nose-Loader type with automatic docking guides. Installation was completed in August 1995 and commissioning took place in February 1996.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

Maintenance of the passenger boarding bridges was contracted for a period of one year. The passenger boarding bridges feature a smooth exterior finish, round corners and stainless steel guides with interior cladding of high-pressure pressed panels and carpeted flooring. The boarding bridges are also equipped with a 2 x 312 KvA centralised 400 Hz system and a PAC system (air conditioned for the airplane), along with a centralised water system. A lower support for services (400Hz, PAC and VDGS) was also installed. Additional equipment includes automatic VDGS docking guides with inductive loops (18 centre lines) and sensors on the tarmac. The traction and lifting mechanism system is electromechanically operated.
