On April 26, 2018, Michael Schlingmann, CEO of ARADEX AG, gave a lecture on efficiency in electric drive solutions to around 80 people at the well-known business club “Airport Club Frankfurt”. In the course of this, Schlingmann explains the possibility of designing electric vehicles more efficiently and cost-effectively (for airport aprons, among other things). Special interest was shown by the Chinese delegates to the technology of the VECTOPOWER inverters, whose ingenious control allows significant savings on the battery. Since the battery consumes up to 50% of the entire electric vehicle, 5% more efficiency is also beneficial for the costs. The viability of the approaches was demonstrated on a number of example projects to which ARADEX has already successfully contributed. In addition to the electrification solution for airport aprons the following projects were discussed:
- Biggest electric vehicle in the world: electric dump truck
- Electric whale watching boat “Opal”
We are pleased about the great interest in the presented VECTOPOWER technology and are optimistic about the further cooperation.
