Reduce emissions - and save fuel
With the ever rising cost of aviation fuel, most
airlines around the globe come to the realize that reducing the
overall aircraft weight to an operational minimum is a key
component to cost reduction and profitability.
In the particular case of on board aircraft loading systems,
these systems (depending on the complexity) can add well over 1,000
kgs to the MTOW of a single narrow body aircraft.
Studies have shown that removing such systems can save
over EUR 75,000 per year per aircraft in fuel
Additionally complex built-in, onboard systems have to be
maintained by more expensive aircraft maintenance personnel and if
a system issue is serious enough, it can cause aircraft delays or
to be grounded all together. The Power Stow Rollertrack provides
the same benefits as the onboard systems, but is ground based and
therefore eliminates the cost associated with extra fuel burn and
aircraft maintenance issues. Not to mention the extremely complelx
logistics and high cost if the onboard system is based on ULDs.
