Skybrokers de-installed three satellite antennas at Bavaria Film Studios in Germany

In 2019 Skybrokers was contracted to remove three satellite antennas from the campus of Bavaria Film Studios in Munich, Germany. The project started in January 2020 with the de-installation of an Andrew 4,6m antenna from an office building, a VertexRSI 6.3m and a VertexRSI 9.0m antenna from ground level. The three member project and installation team spend two weeks on the campus to dismantle the antennas and load them into dedicated trucks.

Bavaria Film is known for television films such as Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Berlin Alexanderplatz (1980) and Wolfgang Petersen’s Das Boot (1981) as well as the production of the Monty Python’s Fliegender Zirkus specials for German and Austrian television in 1971 and 1972.

Bavaria Film is one of Europe’s largest film production and distribution studios located in Geiselgasteig, a district of Munich’s southern suburb Grünwald in Germany. The studios were founded in 1919, when Munich-raised film producer Peter Ostermayr converted the private film company he had founded in 1907, Münchener Lichtspielkunst, GmbH, to the public company Münchener Lichtspielkunst, AG. (Emelka), and acquired a large area (approx. 356.000 m²) for the studios. In 1930 investor Wilhelm Kraus and a consortium of banks bought a major shareholding in the company, and on 21 September 1932 the group took control and renamed it Bavaria Film, AG. In 1938 the Bavaria Film was nationalized but privatized again in 1956.





Amazing to see how three antennas were removed smoothly from our Campus in just two weeks! Thanks a lot for your support.
