  2. A Key Technology in the Fight Against Climate Change
    Za'abeel Hall 4
  3. AGES - The efficient alternative to APU
    Za'abeel Hall 4
    The ground energy supply of aircrafts at airports is a crucial factor when cost, time, and energy efficiency/CO2 emissions reduction criteria have to be fulfilled simultaneously. The new air handling system of AGES avoids these problems. AGES convinces with a long service life and minimal maintenance costs facilitated by the use of high quality materials. When aircrafts shut down the APU at the terminal they must be supplied with electricity and cold air from the ground. Airbus aircrafts need air at a temperature until -18°C, when ambient temperature reaches 46°C. Under these conditions conventional chillers suffer from very low efficiency: they consume plenty of electricity.
