What makes your products / services stand out?
Airports all over the world are beginning to think greener. And more and more airports are interested in reducing their environmental impact. We have provided solid-state ground power since the 1950’ies and our ITW GSE 2400 Ground Power Unit series is the market’s best choice when it comes to clean, solid-state, point-of-use converters. It is small and simple, reliable and robust. It has all kinds of outstanding technical qualities from patented plug and play feature providing a unique output voltage at the aircraft plug, the smart ITW GSE user interface, soft-ware update via USB and the standard overload capabilities that matches all types of aircraft from PF 0.8 to PF 1. To support the green airports and a better working environment for the airport staff, we have designed the ITW GSE 7400 eGPU GPU. The markets only true 90 kVA battery powered 400 Hz unit that will help airports reduce their carbon foot print. Make a giant leap forward by replacing your diesel GPUs with ITW GSE 7400 eGPUs. In that way, you can reduce your CO2 emissions by 90% and the NOx emissions completely at the place of work.

Which technology or trend do you think will have the biggest impact on the air transport industry in 2019?
For all airports, there is a continued focus on environmental friendly solutions especially on equipment emissions and noise. We at ITW GSE have now designed a game changing battery driven eGPU, the markets only true 90 kVA unit. The 7400 GPU is a unique product with a green approach. Thanks to its lack of moving parts vulnerable to wear and tear, maintenance costs are almost non-existent, meaning overall operating costs stay low. With current electricity prices and maintenance costs, the eGPU is a clear winner in comparison to a diesel GPU. Switching to an eGPU may lead to reductions in CO2 emissions by 90% and the NOx emissions 95% at the place of work.
