Bangor International Airport expands deicing offering

Bangor International Airport in Maine, USA, is expanding its deicing offering with an order for a Global ER-2875 deicer, specifically designed for larger aircraft.

Manufactured by Global Ground Support, the ER-2875 has the longest side reach and highest cab/nozzle height of any mobile deicer in the world, catering to aircraft as large as an Airbus A380.

Using a hydraulically-driven centrifugal compressor mounted on the operator platform, the deicing system uses forced air, either alone or in combination with deicing fluid, to remove all forms of frozen contamination from the critical surfaces of the aircraft.

James Canders, assistant airport director at Bangor, commented, “What this allows is better visual inspection of the aircraft when cleaned and, from the pilot’s standpoint, a speedier de-icing process and turn-around. The extra 10ft (3m) of boom will be particularly valuable on larger military and cargo aircraft with a T-tail configuration.”
