22.02.2017 - Start of the conversion works on the Airbus Manufacturing Hall 213/214. The hall was newly built just a few years ago. Originally, two separate A380 assembly berths were accommodated here:
This is now being converted – in an area of some 13,000 m² – into one continuous production line for A320 aircraft. For this purpose, two wide openings with dimensions of up to c. 8 m x 14 m will be broken into the over 30 m high and 80 m long firewall – a central structural element of the hall.
In addition, mining techniques will be used to create new equipment rooms under the sole, which also have to be connected by creating further openings in the sole.
