In the last 50 years, Euroclima has shipped more than 100,000 units all over the world from 1.000 to 600.000m³/h and was chosen as the manufacturer of the air handling units for the expansion of Bologna Airport.
Bologna's airport is officially known as the Guglielmo Marconi International Airport (BLQ) and was named after the acclaimed Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937). Famous for his part in developing wireless telegraphy, Marconi was born close to Bologna and educated in the city.
In light of the increased passenger traffic to more than 5 million passengers per year, and the further anticipated increase in air traffic, the Bologna Airport needed to expand and refurbish the passenger terminal. At the end of these works of restyling and expansion, the new structure will be larger and will offer new services and an improved quality travel experience. Step-by-step actions and gradual transformations will guarantee a constant level of service while work is in progress.
The site of Bologna Airport covers an area of 2.450.000 sqm and boasts a newly extended 2,800 meter-long runway, which was opened in July 2004.
