Construction of CSeries wing manufacturing facility under way

  • 20-Nov-2009 05:01 EST

Construction recently began on Bombardier Aerospace’s new aircraft wing manufacturing and assembly facility in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The 600,000-ft² factory is being built in two phases and will incorporate an existing production building. The facility’s design and layout are being optimized both for the production process and to minimize environmental impact. The structure will ensure maximum energy efficiency and will incorporate low-energy solutions into its mechanical and electrical infrastructure. About 800 jobs will be generated during full production, as well as many more in the wider supply chain. About 450 construction personnel are involved in this first phase of the building project.
