Technical Highlights

The GROUND POWER is characterized by optimized efficiency and increased efficiency. Low maintenance, simple servicing and operation complete the image of this consistent development. We guarantee optimal performance.

Optimized economy
With the reduction of the engine speed to 1,500 rpm in combination with a highly efficient 400 Hz generator, the GROUND POWER generation achieves a higher economy, particularly by reducing fuel consumption. This also results in lower maintenance costs at lowest noise emissions.

Increased efficiency
Due to the high efficiency of the generator, regardless of the load profile, aircraft can also be economically optimally supplied in the partial load operation.

Maximum serviceability
The modular switchgear simplifies all service work. Generously sized side panels allow for optimal access.

Simplified operation
The 15.4 ” touch panel of the control unit is characterized by intuitive user guidance. It is also well-readable in high solar irradiation, dust and waterproof, as well as for the most adverse flight conditions. The resistive touch screen can easily be operated with gloves.
