Fokker Services Group has opened its new wide-body hangar in Hoogerheide, The Netherlands. It has an impressive 87 metre length, 86 metre width and 27 metre height, this state-of-the-art facility can accommodate widebody aircraft such as A330, A350, B787 and B777, and will make a crucial contribution to the company’s long-term objective as market demand for completion services continues to surge.

FSG made sustainability a top priority in this project, resulting in a completely electrically powered new hangar and the installation of an environmentally friendly geothermal energy system. Furthermore, by the end of 2023 the company will have installed photovoltaic solar power capacity on the rooftop of the hangar, reducing the dependency on external energy sources. The design of the hangar was co-developed with Gaptek, a leader in modular architecture, using its patented lightweight system. These improvements will reduce the CO2 emissions from the construction by 75% compared to a conventional hangar.

According to Roland van Dijk, CEO of FSG: “We’re in a relentless pursuit of global excellence with a strong focus on sustainability, of which this new hangar is a key milestone. Our cutting-edge technology, engineering skills and centennial history are putting us in an uncontested position to become the partner of choice for the wide-body airframe maintenance and completions and conversions market.”
