JFK Airport Infrared Radiant Deicing

JFK Infrared Deicing

DY Consultants was proud to participate on the development of a Radiant Deicing System constructed at JFK International Airport in the vicinity of Hangar 12. This project involved new technology to provide an innovative method to deice aircraft with minimal environmental impacts upon stormwater systems at the airport by minimizing the use of glycol. This safe technique utilizes patented EPU’s, which target electromagnetic waves (infrared energy), which melts ice and reflects from the aircraft.  This structure provides service to aircraft as large as a Boeing 747. DY Consultants was the engineer-of-record on this design/build project, responsible for project management, civil work, construction management services, and land surveying, as well as the coordinator between subcontractors.
