mobile GPU

Ground Power Units

Ground Power Unit (GPU) power an aircraft's electrical system at the gate or hangar. This mobile or fixed power supply is essential for many aircraft operations, including pre-flight inspections, maintenance tasks, and passenger boarding. When the engines are not operating, a GPU offers the required electrical power to keep aircraft systems functioning, assuring the performance of vital systems like avionics, lighting, and temperature control. Using a GPU saves fuel and lessens engine wear by removing the need to depend only on the aircraft's power-generating capabilities.

Ground power units usually comprise a generator powered by a diesel engine. Still, they can be of other configurations, such as single, three-phase supply, and battery-powered units that provide either 28.5VDC, 400Hz AC power output or both. The power output is suitable for narrow, wide-body aircraft and helicopters.

Our principal manufactures GPUs for a wide range of applications and in various configurations, such as;

  • Under-bridge units
  • Mobile and stationary units
  • PIT systems.

We also offer supplementary equipment such as portable load banks, charger-dischargers for battery units, cables, and accessories.

runway lighting

Airfield Ground Lighting solutions

Airport lights are installed in the airfield taxiways and runways, illuminating the airport runway at night or in low visibility conditions. Airport lighting helps pilots to identify runway, takeoff and touchdown areas, and other areas and obstructions on the airfield.

Our offering includes innovative products and solutions for;

  • Runway lighting
  • Taxiway lighting
  • Approach lighting
  • Threshold lighting
  • PAPI lighting
  • Taxiway guidance lighting and signs
  • Airfield Lamps
  • Obstruction lighting

The solution comprises airfield lighting, power and control systems, and airport tower software.

radar

Accurate and timely radio communications are essential to air safety and efficient air traffic management. The VOR & radar equipment contains electronics sensitive to voltage fluctuations, which demand the use of voltage regulators and stabilizers.

We offer power quality and power backup solutions for aviation, which include:

  • Stand-alone photovoltaic systems (micro & mini-grids)
  • Automatic voltage regulators (AVR) and un-interruptible systems (UPS) for VOR & radar stations

Telecommunication Solutions

telecoms

Telecom networks require reliable power backup solutions that can operate for hours or even days when the power grid fails because of severe weather, natural disasters, or poor grid quality.

At Electechnique, we provide robust solutions for base stations that are not only inexpensive and durable but also good for the environment, which include:

  • Batteries - Valve regulated Lead-acid 
  • Rectifiers / Battery chargers
  • Hybrid Solar systems

All suited for the most extreme East African climatic conditions.
