Premium Aerotec has officially started the manufacturing of the rear-fuselage side shells for the A350-1000 version at the Augsburg site. In October/2014 Premium Aerotec site of Nordenham had already started the production of its workpackage on the A350-1000.
The head of the A350 program at Premium Aerotec Joachim Nägele and the COO Andreas Fehring, thanked the team: "It is great to work with a highly motivated team at the most modern aircraft in the world. The excellent work that provide our employees makes me confident for the further ramp-up."
Premium Aerotec manufactures at Augsburg site the side shells of the rear fuselage (section 16/18), the floor structure and the aft pressure bulkhead. In Nordenham site, the full front fuselage section 13/14 is manufactured. The front and the rear fuselage section of the A350-1000 are each over 3 metres longer than the 900.
The A350-1000 introduces important innovations: for the highly complex structure of door frames, Premium Aerotec has developed an own CFRP solution together with Airbus for the first time. It contributes to significant weight & cost savings. In addition, the production time has been challenged with modifications in the production process.
