Transport containers for satellites and highly sensitive equipment

14/09/2019

Aerospace: AlpinaTec develops and builds customer-specific transport containers for satellites and other sensitive equipment.

Depending on the model, the containers are rollable, air-conditioned and equipped with special spring and damping elements. This ensures undamaged transport of sensitive large equipment, even in overseas transfers.


Example: In this container developed and delivered by AlpinaTec, solar generators are transported from production to satellite integration. The generators, which are later shot into space with the satellites, must therefore be transported under air-conditioned and controlled conditions.

Project details:

  • Projects: eRosita, Eurostar 300, Troponi-Astrium
  • AlpinaTec task: development, production, delivery 
  • Client: Airbus, Carlo Gavazzi Space
