A better environment for everyone.

A better environment for everyone.

One of the great challenges facing mankind is the increasing air pollution. This increase is associated with the production and consumption of carbon based fuels – coal, oil and gas – which all increase levels of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere when used to generate energy.

Since the 1980’s, we have a proven track-record of designing and manufacturing environmentally friendly power supply systems. As care of the environment, and subsequent social issues arising from pollution, become ever more important to companies around the world, we are continuously expanding our knowledge and expertise on the subject. This focus has led, amongst other achievements, to us becoming a main supplier of alternative maritime power (AMP) supply systems to ports and ship owners around the world. By allowing ships to disengage their engines when in port, local pollution levels drop dramatically. The success of these systems is measured by an ever increasing flow of interest from the market and society itself.

In airports we have also been making steady progress when it comes to reducing environmental impact. Our supply systems allow aircraft standing at the gate to switch off their engines and rely solely on ground based power supply. This means extensive saving on fuel consumption and a drastic reduction in air pollution. Our newest system, the PCA Caddy, will even be able to provide pre-conditioned air to the parked aircraft, without the need for any type of diesel generator.

We are committed to providing our customers with as many pollution-reducing products as possible, striving all the while to design and manufacture our new technologies affordably and practically. Stefan Widegren, CEO of the Cavotec Group, says: “After 30 years of leadership in our industries, we understand that our customers require solutions that help to reduce their environmental impact without also reducing their bottom line. This approach will better ensure a cleaner and safer global environment for future generations and make the world a more pleasant place to live in today.”
