Improve the Environment and Cut Cost
The increasing focus on environmental issues means that airports aim to let an external pre-conditioned air unit and a 400 Hz solid-state unit take over the functions of the aircraft APU while the aircraft is parked at the gate. We call this the “Go Green on Ground” concept whereby carbon emission is reduced by approx. 80-85%. The concept furthermore provides savings on the costly maintenance to the on-board APU, based on hours of operations. For the airports, the “Go Green on Ground” also means a reduction of the noise level to the benefit of the airport personnel, passengers and to surroundings in general.
