At its stand (E 80) at inter airport Europe 2015, Scania will be exhibiting vehicles, engines and systems for airport operation with a focus on factors such as flexibility, sustainability and excellent overall cost-efficiency. With its background as a leading vehicle maker and well-reputed engine manufacturer, and with its modular approach and the widest engine programme on the market, Scania is perfectly placed to supply solutions to the challenges faced by the aviation industry on the ground.
“An airport is like a concentration of all the challenges other types of business face when meeting the requirements for sustainability in all its forms in a financially justifiable manner,” says Håkan Lionell, Key Account Manager for airport equipment at Scania.
“Operational reliability is essential, of course, and virtually all airports now have ambitious targets for reducing their emissions of both CO2 and other harmful emissions. Considering how many different tasks have to be performed at an airport, there are very few manufacturers like Scania that are able to offer related, sustainable solutions in a range of areas such as passenger transport, catering, backup power or runway maintenance.”
