Turkish Technic is establishing a new international maintenance, repair and overhaul centre within Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen International Airport under the title the HABOM Project (aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul centre).

Two new hangars are to be built, one for servicing narrow body aircraft, the other for wide body aircraft. Jewers Doors will design, supply and install the world-renowned Esavian Type 126 hangar doors on each of the hangars. The openings are approximately 254m wide by 14m high (narrow body hangar) and 226m wide by 22 m high (wide body hangar).

Esavian hangar doors feature state-of-the-art controls and are fitted to the majority of super hangars built for maintenance of A380 aircraft. They are also in service on hangars of all sizes with major airlines, MROs, FBOs, royal families and armed forces worldwide.

The stated aim of the HABOM project is that all facilities will be constructed as environmentally friendly designs which will provide maximum energy savings. An unlimited choice of cladding materials is available for use with Esavian doors enabling them to be highly insulated, secure and translucent. They conform to the tough leadership in energy and environmental design (LEED) internationally recognised green building certification system and are the greenest doors available making them the most suitable for harsh environments.

Jewers Doors recently completed the refurbishment of doors on a two-bay narrow-body aircraft hangar for Turkish Technic at its existing maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities at Istanbul Ataturk International Airport.

Managing director, Chris Jewers, says: “The HABOM project is likely to establish Istanbul as the aircraft maintenance hub for the region and we are very pleased to be part of it. Our unrivalled experience of designing environmentally-friendly hangar doors of any size, anywhere in the world, has once again secured Jewers Doors a major contract.”
