Global engineering group Cavotec has launched a new fuelling element to its innovative E3 Gate concept during this week’s Inter Airport Europe exhibition in Germany, making the E3 Gate one of the most uniquely integrated aircraft servicing systems available anywhere in the world.
Cavotec’s E3 Gate – so called because it is designed to deliver optimal performance in Ergonomics, Economy and the Environment – supplies parked aircraft with 400Hz power, PCAir, blue and potable water and sewage – and now fuel – via underground pit systems. This makes for an uncluttered tarmac around aircraft, thus improving safety and operational efficiency.
“By using Cavotec’s fully integrated E3 Gate, airports can reduce their capital investment, reduce the risk of collision between mobile GSE and aircraft, and have far simpler servicing routines,” says Yann Duclot, Cavotec Group Manager, Sales and Marketing.
