Airship hangar Mülheim
The large dimensions of the hangar not only provide a safe home for the airship “Theo”, but will also offer space for about 1,500 people in the future within the framework of events.
Particularly exciting: in order for Theo to get in and out of the hall easily, the door opening had to be sized accordingly. The two custom-made gate wings, which were installed last Friday, therefore boast a surface area of 400 m2 per wing and a dead weight of 82 tonnes each. They are opened and closed by four 80 hp electric motors.
With the assembly of this gigantic gate, the essential assembly work on the airship hangar has now been completed and Theo was already able to move into his new home last Wednesday.
