Group effort

Rubb was selected to build a large maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) hangar for Turkish Airlines and maintenance support arm Turkish Technic.

Delivering the 82.3m x 87.5m x 9.8m AVC type structure was an internationally cooperative project for Rubb. Rubb UK was involved in the early sales process and securing the contract; Rubb USA engineered and oversaw the project; Rubb Poland produced the Thermohall® cladding; and Rubb Norway provided advanced Tekla® program modelling. Rubb’s partners at Rubb Industries AS helped with installation and the steel was produced in Turkey by Modul Celik, with cooperation and oversight from Rubb USA.

Fully featured

The hangar is equipped with 50mm Rubb Thermohall® insulated cladding. Rubb produced 12,000m² of Thermohall® cladding for the project, utilising 32,000m² of Precontraint 412 and Precontraint 832 fabric from Serge Ferrari. This specialised architectural PVC deflects light and heat and is ideal for the climate in Turkey. The Thermohall® cladding efficiently insulates the structure, resulting in a facility that can be easily climate controlled depending on usage and operations.

This MRO building includes a 71.9m x 19.8m Megadoor entry system. This type of door offers unique attributes including faster opening and closing times, excellent air tightness and wind resistance, longer lifetime and lower operating cost, safer working environment thanks to patented safety arrestors and advanced and robust PLC based control systems. The MRO facility also features an LED lighting system and a full HVAC system.

We needed a heavy maintenance hangar featuring at least one bay. The Rubb hangar was most useful for us in terms of fast manufacturing. Another benefit is that when our new MRO facility is finished, we will be able to dismantle this hangar and evaluate and use it at another airport. The main needs that the hangar has helped us meet are lower costs, fast construction and the need for a flexible location. The Rubb hangar is ideal for cases where we work in a single bay: e.g. paint hangars or single bay large body aircraft storage hangars. The Rubb team were very hardworking and fast. Instead of complaints and excuses, they tried to produce continuous solutions.
