One of the four Osprey rubber removal systems commissioned in the last three months of 2019 was Sudan, where our team of engineers worked closely with local partners ‘ALDAR for Contracting’ to set up the machine and train local operators and maintainers.

Sudan Osprey

This is the culmination of four years of talks and proposals, during which time the rubber deposits on Khartoum International Airport runway built up, decreasing surface friction dramatically.  We are very grateful to ALDAR for contracting and our other partners around the world for all their support in realising these projects and for their determination in overcoming barriers along the way.

The Osprey machine uses only ultra-high pressure water to remove the rubber deposits without damaging the asphalt surface.  Friction values were measured pre- and post- rubber removal and they were found to have trebled while removing very heavy rubber deposits, dramatically increasing the safety of aircraft using this important international and regional hub.

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.
