Anticipating the need to have more capacity to support its civil & military customers, B2B helicopter operator NHV decided to invest in a new MRO (Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul) hangar close to its existing facility and headquarters at Ostend Airport (Belgium).
This 3000 sqm hangar will be able to accommodate, in maintenance or modifications activities, up to six aircraft simultaneously. The structure will provide a state-of-the-art environment, in which nose-to-tail customized maintenance can be performed. Multiple other specialized support functions are incorporated into the hangar design; including a battery shop, sheet metal/ composite shop, a paint facility and a storage area for parts and aircraft. The new hangar, part of the NSAC facilities, is located at the West corner of the Ostend Airport within a short distance to the runway and nearby NHV’s existing facilities in the Kalkaertstraat. The new hangar should be operational by April 2020.
