Aviation Greener Ground Power

Flying Just Got Greener

Lithium iron phosphate batteries can be used as means of supplying so many applications with power, however the most recent and innovative has to be in the area of aviation. Large airlines such as British Airlines and Virgin Atlantic are increasingly looking towards greener, eco-friendly ways of reducing their carbon footprint. One such way is by using lithium iron phosphate batteries to power the electrical systems of ground equipment such as passenger stairs. Solar panels are connected up a lithium iron phosphate battery to create a self-sufficient circuit which can carry out up to 30 operations. Passenger stairs are used on 80% of aircrafts to enable people to enter the plane safely, as such they are an important part of any airport and aviation company’s infrastructure.

Passenger Solutions, With No Carbon Footprint

The beauty of solar powered passenger stairs is that they are run on sustainable electricity rather than a loud, fume ejecting generator. Stairs enable passengers and the disabled to enter planes in a safe and easy manner, and are used by all airlines where entry to an aircraft is from the ground. Passenger stairs that use generators are un-eco-friendly as they tend to travel only short distances, and are run almost constantly in the unfavourable ‘cold start’ mode. This disproportionately increases emissions, consumption, and wear-and-tear. This is why many airlines are looking for better and more sustainable solutions like those offered by Transporter Energy’s lithium iron phosphate batteries.

Solar-Powered Passenger Stairs

With Transporter Energy lithium iron phosphate batteries, there is no ‘cold start’ on passenger stairs, with the electric drive being charged by the addition of solar panels to the side of the stairways. Lithium iron phosphate batteries are charged in an environmentally friendly way, using less power, servicing passengers for longer and being much more reliable regardless of the weather conditions. Transporter Energy’s lithium iron phosphate batteries are additionally used to power aircraft lighting on stairs and other ground equipment, utilising very economical LEDs and creating a perfect operational system for the environment, passengers and aviation services alike.
