Airbus Manufacturing Facility

Client:Morgan Sindall

Background

Airbus’s improvement program appointed Morgan Sindall to undertake the construction of the 52,000m² manufacturing site for the manufacture of wings for the new Airbus A350 and A380.

The Overall Objective

The site had high-level groundwater issues and is within an area regulated by the Environment Agency therefore allowing high pH water to seep into the ground was not an option.

Solution

At first a Siltbuster RCW unit was introduced to site in March 2009. Two more were soon in place to control and treat washwater generated on-site, with a further two made available for use when required during larger concrete pours. During the pouring of the machine bases, truck movements peaked at 283 over the course of just one weekend, necessitating the use of four RCW units at once.
