Royal Schiphol Group is investing in new electric ground equipment for aircraft handling purposes. Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and other Schiphol Group airports are now using several electric ‘ground power units’ (E-GPU). These E-GPUs provide aircraft on the ground with energy and replace the diesel variant. The purchase of the E-GPUs dovetails with the ‘Smart & Sustainable’ action plan and the climate agreement by reducing the CO2 emissions of Dutch airports.
