Simplex Aerospace (Booth No. N2511) announced EASA certification of its aerial cleaning and de-icing system for power lines and windmills during Heli-Expo ‘13. Portland, Ore.-based Simplex received EASA certification for installation of the Model 510 system on the Eurocopter AS350 and AS355 on Feb. 8, 2013, according to Michael Finnegan, regional manager for the company.

The Model 510 system includes a 180-gallon water tank that significantly increases operator time between refills, and its nozzled boom extends past the rotor tips of the helicopter on which it is installed, providing an extended washing distance. That lets operators clean hard-to-reach items, such as insulator rings.
