Aircraft Deicing System (ADS) Modernization Denver International Airport (DEN) is seeking a contractor to provide Design, Build, Operation, and Maintenance services for the modernization of the Aircraft Deicing System (ADS). The ADS provides for the receipt, storage and distribution of aircraft deicing fluid (ADF), and for the collection, storage and recycling of spent ADF (i.e., stormwater contaminated with ADF).

The purpose of this project is to replace the existing glycol distillation equipment that is part of the recycling system so that DEN can continue to treat spent ADF and maintain the continuity of our winter operations. Included within this scope is associated repair projects that are required to maintain the operation of the system into the future, including removal and replacement of the existing building roof, removing old distillation and pre-concentrator systems, installation of a new backup generator for ADF distribution, repairs to Pond 003 pumps, and existing site infrastructure repairs such as underground damaged piping and damaged pavement.
