Here is a brief overview of Cavotec INET electrical converters that ensure the safe and efficient transfer of electrical power to aircraft at airports around the world.
Cavotec INET electrical converters convert 50Hz mains electrical power to sufficiently high voltages to power aircraft while they stand at the gate.
Aircraft require substantial amounts of power to run on board systems such as lighting, heating, avionics and air conditioning. Where electrical power from the ground is unavailable, aircraft have to run their auxiliary power units (APUs) to power these systems.
APUs however generate substantial amounts of pollutants into the air and consume considerable amounts of fuel. Aircraft that use electrical converters instead thus reduce the amounts of such emissions.
In several recent orders, for example with our latest GSE project in India, Cavotec’s offering has been significantly strengthened by the capacity to integrate electrical converter systems with other utility services into comprehensive turn-key packages.
