Featured Case Study

North Airfield Deicing Facility

During winter 2011, a fierce four-day winter storm stranded aircraft on the tarmac at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, costing airlines approximately $60 million per day of inactivity. To prevent this occurrence in the future, the City of Atlanta hired Prime Engineering’s team to design and develop a state-of-the-art deicing facility. This facility needed to be able to get aircraft off the ground in even the worst winter conditions – and it needed to do so in a profitable way given tight economic conditions.
