Via MT Aerospace, OHB plays a crucial role in both passenger transportation and air cargo.  

For many years the company has been a market leader for the production and assembly of CFRP water and waste tanks and a main supplier to the Airbus fleet.

The military freighter A400M  features central input and output manifolds for the ventilation of the heat exchangers as well as cladding for the aircraft hull supplied by MT Aerospace. These components make a crucial contribution to MT Aerospace’s efforts to organically extend its successful aeronautics activities. 

The winding technology is used not only for producing light-weight tanks but also for fabricating the CFRP engine cladding for guided missiles. In addition, special insulation components are built for the hot gas segments of missiles.

Project: Airbus tanks

Company: MT Aerospace AG

In Passagierflugzeugen werden Tanks für die Versorgung der Passagiere mit Frischwasser sowie für das Sammeln des Abwassers benötigt.

Passenger aircrafts require tanks for supplying passengers with potable water and collecting waste water. Under the terms of this project, potable water tanks are being supplied for the single aisle and long-range programs as well as waste water tanks for the long-range program.


This is ongoing series business, with roughly 860 tanks of various different configurations supplied in 2011.
