Fraport orders 4 pcs of the ITW GSE 7400 Battery GPU through STATRON for delivery end of October 2018. The GPUs will help achieve Fraport’s ambitious objectives of reducing CO2 emissions. The objective is to reduce the 2017 level of CO2 emissions by approx 57% in 2030!
The 7400 GPU offers 90% lower CO2 emissions compared to a conventional diesel GPU. When running 5.5 hours a day, a diesel GPU produces 63,000 kilograms of CO2 and 300 kilograms of NOx over the course of a year. Running at the same levels, the ITW GSE 7400 produces only 6,500 kilograms of CO2 and just 13.7 kilograms of NOx. A net reduction in emissions of 90%. Imagine the significant environmental savings for large airports!
The ITW GSE 7400 GPU is in a class of its own and comes without compromise. It is autonomous and can easily be transported to wherever it is needed. The flexibility of the 7400 GPU provides the same outstanding, well-proven qualities of other ITW GSE solid-state GPUs, including precise and clean output voltage at the aircraft plug, and individual phase regulation of each output phase. It can do 5-6 turn-arounds in case of a narrow-body aircraft before it needs recharging.
ITW GSE and STATRON congratulate Fraport to this new green initiative!
