Client Introduction

The Toll Ambulance Rescue Helicopter Service has a highly qualified crew of pilots, aircrew, doctors, paramedics, engineers and safety managers that perform over 2500 missions per year.

The company flies purpose-built Agusta Westland 139 (AW139) helicopters for delivering air service patients across the Southern Zone of NSW.

The Challenge

Hangar maintenance is very crucial when it comes to running a fleet of modern helicopters. The hangar floors should be clean and free of FOD at all times.

Toll’s new Hangar floors are painted with epoxy coatings and require daily cleaning. Their cleaning regime has to ensure that all the floors look pristine and free of tyre marks, oil spills and debris.

The Solution

Toll Air Ambulance contacted ASC in this regard and asked for the perfect cleaning solution for their Wollongong Air Hangar.

ASC recommended the highly reliable ASC Eureka E 50 scrubber as the best product for this application.

The ASC Eureka E 50 floor-scrubbing machine is designed to maintain hangars this size and is capable of cleaning about 2000 sq. meters per hour.

The use of E 50 would ensure that Toll has an efficient cleaning regime. Besides, the ASC Eureka E 50 would also bring financial benefits, including saving hundreds of labour hours manually cleaning the floors as well as reduction in water consumption by 98%.

Toll now has a system to clean their Hangar quickly, streak-free while being safe to walk on seconds after the squeegee picks up all the soil off the floor.
