Vehicle Fleet

For de-icing and anti-icing, we deploy 78 vehicles.

To satisfy the special requirements of our customers, for example the rear de-icing of an Airbus A380, we run three different vehicle models: Elephant® My, Elephant® Beta and Elephant® Beta 15 from the Danish manufacturer Vestergaard. With these vehicles, de-icing on the Remote De-icing Pads with running engines is possible as well as the completion of exacting ice-checks.

Maintenance and repair is done at Fraport-owned garages and through manufacturer-trained personnel.

Tank Farms

For the storage of the de-icing fluid (ADF), N*ICE runs three tank farms on the apron:  


Tank Farm 1

Our biggest facility next to hangar 5 has been completed in 2007 and holds a capacity of 540.000 liters, a third of which are recycled water, 120.000 liters type I fluid and 240.000 liters type IV fluid. A part of our vehicle fleet is stationed here as well.


Tank Farm 2

This 2009-finished facility has been expanded in 2010 and today holds a 12 tanks of 30.000 liters each, composed of 2 tanks of recycled water, 4 tanks of type I fluid and 6 tanks of type IV fluid. Important is the decentralized location in close proximity to the de-icing pads at departure runway west. A part of our vehicle fleet is stationed here as well.


Tank Farm 3

This facility has been brought into service in 2012 and consists of nine 30.000-liter tanks, 2 tanks containing recycled water, 3 tanks with type I fluid and 4 tanks with type IV fluid. With this location we build storage capacities next to the planned Terminal 3. A part of our vehicle fleet is stationed here as well.
