Airport job departs ahead of schedule

THE AJE team flew back into Sumburgh Airport recently and the project was completed two weeks ahead of schedule.

Working on behalf of Ness Engineering who were contracted by Highlands and Islands Airports Limited, the job was to supply and install 25 tonnes of steel to replace very corroded ‘top of door’ runners for 4no large aircraft hangar doors that had been in place for almost 50 years.

The steel was fabricated at AJE’s Waterford site and project was led by James Attridge.

James said: “The job was completed at the start of February and the customer is very pleased with the work and final product.”

It is not the first time that AJE has worked at Sumburgh Airport.

In May 2020, the team worked on three of four hangars. The works involved repairs to hangars one, two and four and hangars one and two were also fitted with new bi-fold doors.
