Dublin Airport has taken delivery of 27 new KL-V wedge snow ploughs from Aebi Schmidt to help prepare the airport for the rigours of this winter following its experience last March when the infamous ‘Beast from the East’ storm produced some of the worst weather conditions in living memory.
Odhran McCann, Airfield Delivery Manager at Dublin Airport, commented. “Last winter we managed to remain open and fully operational at all times. But we were at full stretch at times and we felt that we needed to reinforce our winter fleet in anticipation of a similar snow event this winter.” He added: “The Schmidt KL-V snowploughs are ideal for the job and we’ve now added 27 to the winter fleet to make sure we’ve got all bases covered for this coming winter. We have a lot of confidence in Schmidt equipment and recently added Schmidt’s Street King 660 and the Swingo compact sweeper to both our air and landside operations, to keep levels of FOD under control and the airport clean and tidy.”
