Electromobility is becoming a true reality inside airports.
There are directives in study asserting that all airports will no longer be able to use diesel engines for all airport ground support equipment in the very near future. All machinery should then include an electric or hybrid technology for their powertrains and engines.
This choice is in line with the need of lowering emissions, creating a more eco-friendly environment for passengers and workers in airports, increasing performances and minimizing the Total Cost of Ownership in each phase of the airport operations.
This becomes very important not only for internal vehicles (like baggage or passengers cars) but especially for all handlers used in the external areas like passenger stairs, belt loaders, fingers, aircraft tow tractors, container loaders, baggage tractors, etc.
