Wiltshire-based airport equipment manufacturer, Jetting Systems, has recently provided a new runway rubber removal system to Kualanamu International Airport, near Medan, Indonesia.

Opened in 2013, Kualanamu International Airport is the second largest airport in Indonesia, and will eventually have a capacity of 50 million passengers/year. The airport currently has a single 3750m runway, two taxiways and 13,700 m2 of apron and cargo area.

The Osprey LA2200 that has been purchased by airport operator, PT Angkasa Pura II,  removes the rubber deposits left on the runways by landing aircraft, which reduce the grip available to other aircraft. The vehicles are also used quickly and efficiently remove paint and clean ground-based airfield lights.

Jetting Systems and COVID-19

On a daily basis we are all seeing how fast the COVID-19 situation is developing. Government press releases this week have confirmed we are entering a new phase of the Virus and it is likely that there will be further restrictions imposed.

 

In order to best protect ourselves and to give us the best possible chance to continue serving our customers during this challenging time we have been proactive in relocating staff into offices with no more than three people and implementing seven-day opening with split shifts. All overseas and UK travel was stopped several weeks ago and we are only accepting essential visitors to our site. Goods inwards are quarantined in accordance with the published virus life cycle times on various surfaces.
