Liebherr’s A380 Supplemental Cooling System enters into service
The second-generation supplemental cooling system developed, manufactured and qualified by Liebherr-Aerospace for the Airbus A380 aircraft has entered into service in July 2012, upon delivery of the A380 serial number 078 to Malaysia Airlines. Liebherr-Aerospace’s supplemental cooling system is a high-power cooling system that features latest-generation power electronics and a screw compressor. The system provides additional cooling to control the temperature level in such critical areas as galleys and electronic bay. In addition to the supplemental cooling system, Liebherr-Aerospace supplies a wide range of key systems to the Airbus A380, including the high lift system, spoiler actuation, the engine bleed air system as well as the hydraulics cooling system.
