Olmar reaches an historical agreement to be part of the “Ariane 6” project in collaboration with Airbus D&S
After months of work and negotiations, Olmar has confirmed that will take part of the “Ariane 6”, the new and ambitious project of the European Space Agency (ESA) in which up to 12 countries are involved (Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, Spain , Holland, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, Romania and Norway).
Olmar will manufacture an autoclave of extraordinary dimensions for this project, with more than 8 meters of total diameter that very few companies in the world are able to carry out. The company’s experience in manufacturing high-tec autoclaves and the success of its projects with Airbus Defense & Space have been fundamental factors in the awarding of the project.
The “Ariane 6” is a space shuttle with two versions (A62 and A64) that will be able to meet the expectations of the satellite launch market by being able to make up to 12 heavy ship launches per year at an altitude of 36,000 km. It is planned to be ready for the year 2020.
