GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT


Electrical energy for ground support equipment

Bring passengers and luggage to the aircraft, push the aircraft into the right parking position, ensure the supply of food and fuel: numerous vehicles are used on an airport's apron – usually operated by diesel engines. This leads to high fuel consumption and increases particulate matter pollution at airports. Intelligent, innovative Li-Ion battery systems can help make the use of ground support equipment more economical and more environmentally friendly.

Strict requirements for ground support equipment

Everything is going according to plan so that the "logistics monster" airport runs smoothly. Reliability in quality and performance is crucial for ground support equipment, which must be at the exact spot to ensure a smooth operation at the airport. The technology of battery-powered ground support equipment must therefore meet the highest requirements. Voltabox relies on proven lithium-ion technology and a flexible modular principle to develop and produce its battery systems. This allows customized solutions and an effective use of systems and resources. 

Voltabox thus provides the technology to implement the goals of the International Air Transport Association to improve overall environmental protection and reduce CO2 emissions at airports. This begins on the ground. Ground transport services at airports handle enormous mileage each year, with thousands of vehicles. Switching to hybrid or electric drives can be a significant contribution in achieving these goals. 

Goals of the International Air Transport Association

Fuel efficiency:

By 2020, fuel efficiency is to be improved by 1.5 percent annually.

Neutral growth:

CO2-neutral growth at airports is to be possible from 2020 on.

Emission reduction:

The net CO2 emissions are to be cut in half by 2050.
