Installation date: 2005
CTI successfully installed and commissioned a roof suspended tail and fuselage docking system, together with a 3-level Nosedock, fully integrated within the building's mezzanine.
The customers expectations inquired not only feasability for - B747 of any series (B747-100, -200, -300, -400) - B777 of any series (B777-200, -300) for maintenance and overhaul tasks, but also for aircraft painting within the same docking installation.
While applying flexible platform sections and bridges adapting the aircraft, especially the high ranking requirements for painting tasks (explosion-proof electrical equipments, hindrance free access to any aircraft surface) could have been overcome.
In addition the well-proven CTI lift and transfer driving system, experienced from many crane and teleplatform systems before together with a sophisticated lightweight but extremly stiff dock design allows quickest and safest docking operating times.
