It all started with a delayed flight
On December 2009, our founder was waiting for his brother to come home for Christmas. Due to bad weather conditions and chaos at the de-icing facilities at the airport, his flight was severely delayed.
Carwash, but for airplanes
Because of this incident, our founder came up with the idea for an automatic washing and de-icing machine for aircraft.
A more efficient future
After spending hundreds of hours talking to professionals in the aviation industry, it became clear to our founder that today's methods for washing and de-icing of airplanes are costly, time-consuming and environmentally harmful. The need for a more advanced solution was obvious, so we assigned a team of professionals to create a system that would ensure a high quality, cost-efficient machine for washing and de-icing aircraft. Last, but not least, we had a vision that our invention would enable the aviation industry to leave a more environmentally friendly footprint.
We decided that the best way to present his idea was to build a scale model to demonstrate our idea to the world. After more than 2000 working hours, the 1:20 scale model was ready for demonstration at Inter Airport in Münich.
Staying legal and owing the rights
The Multi Solution Gate was presented for the first time at the SAE G-12 committee, which decides on the standards for de-icing procedures in the world. It has always been a high priority for MSG Production to follow these industry regulations. Patent pending was applied for across the world.
A seal of excellence
Our project received the Seal of Excellence and EUR 2,5 mill from the European Commission Horizon 2020 SME Research and Innovation Program.
Construction starts at the full scale test facility
Building of the world’s first automatic washing and de-icing system starts at Skien Airport Geiteryggen in Norway.
Showing the world
MSG Production participates at Inter Airport München for the second time. Parts of the full-size machine are shown at the event.
Testing on the real deal
MSG Production's own Boeing 737 arrives at Skien Airport Geiteryggen. This aircraft plays a vital role in the testing and demonstration of the Multi Solution Gate.
The grand opening
The official opening ceremony of the Multi Solution Gate takes place with the Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg and guests from several parts of the world.
