Today, seven months away from the new paint hangar’s launch date, we continue to work on facility construction developments with Tallinn Airport. By the end of the construction, Magnetic MRO’s capabilities in providing commercial and VIP standard painting services for a wide range of aircraft types – including Boeing 737max, Airbus 320neo Family, as well as all other narrow bodied aircraft – will be significantly expanded.
The hangar space for painting will be 1628 m²; and will effectively increase the total dedicated painting area in HQ up to 4354 m² including the existing painting facility. The total size of the new paint hangar, on the other hand, is expected to be 2 floors and 2853 m² together with workshops, office areas and meeting rooms, client offices, technical support rooms and so on. It will be a single bay hangar and equipped with a custom docking system which can be tailored to serve different types of aircraft; which will in turn lead the facility to become one of a kind in the whole region. In addition to its customized features, the new paint hangar is also designed and engineered to support further value added qualities, such as safety, airflow, contamination control, temperature and humidity control, lighting and energy efficiency. It will also be furnished with a modern, eco-friendly, temperature and humidity-controlled ventilation system in order to provide an excellent final product to our current and future customers. A specially designed spray booth will be installed for aircraft part painting including VIP aircraft interiors, workshops, and stores as well as staff amenities. Considering all Magnetic MRO painting activities are covered by ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, every step is being taken to meet and maintain environmental and quality standards.
The facility will also stand out from the viewpoint of construction details. Modern LED lightening system and easily cleanable white walls supported by advanced infrastructure will result in resisting contamination build-up and creating a brighter painting environment for a better quality finishes. This optimal lighting will also help in the course of inspections and eliminate any quality issues during the final inspection.
By the end of the construction, Magnetic MRO’s capabilities in providing commercial and VIP standard painting services for a wide range of aircraft types – including Boeing 737max, Airbus 320neo Family, as well as all other narrow bodied aircraft – will be significantly expanded. We will be able and competent to perform up to 4 Commercial Aircraft or 2 Business Jet aircraft paintings per month accompanied by the advanced aircraft painting technologies, including Mankiewicz, PPG Aerospace, AkzoNobel and Sherwin-Williams coating systems.
We are proud that we successfully reached another milestone in establishing our dedicated Paint Hangar in Estonia. Throughout this detailed planning and strategic decision making process, we have managed to show the dedication and confidence to build a world-class painting facility in the Baltic States, which will provide the utmost value to our customers in terms of both quality and beauty.
