In early 2011 we were successful in being awarded a contract to design and supply an Aircraft Hangar for Eznis Airways.
This hangar was required to house their fleet comprising of four Saab 340B aircraft and two Avro RJ85 aircraft, which serve their expanding domestic flights service operating from the Chinggis Khaan International Airport in Ulaanbaatar.
The project required the design and fabrication of a 50m clear span Hangar together with a two storey office, workshop and stores facility on either side of the Hangar and across the rear elevation.
In addition, we supplied the Eznis Company Logo which sits proudly on both gable peaks of the Hangar and we also produced a separate pair of sliding doors which can be opened to allow the nose of an Avro RJ85 aircraft to be worked on in inside the Hangar whilst the rest of the aircraft remains outside.
A set of inflatable fabric seals mounted on the main Hangar doors and matched to the shape of the fuselage ensure that the weather stays outside.
We designed, fabricated and shipped every piece of steelwork, together with the cladding and the very important insulation material.
(temperatures in Ulaanbaatar hit + 40°C in the summer, but drop to – 40°C in the winter)
All packaged into more than 20 containers from the UK to Ulaanbaatar and also supervised the construction and erection of the structure before the worst of the winter weather set in.
