Modifying the rocket engine testbed for Ariane 6, Germany

Modifying the rocket engine testbed for Ariane 6, Germany
At the Lampoldshausen site of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), tests were to be conducted on the new main engine of the Ariane 6 launch vehicle. This necessitated modifications to the P5 testbed. Fichtner oversaw this process from the feasibility study through to project completion. In doing so, Fichtner prepared the basic and detail engineering, the HAZOP study and the tender documents. Further, Fichtner oversaw contract award, monitored the contractors and coordinated the works on the construction site.
