Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport plans to deploy 102 AeroVironment TurboDock charging stations at its parking facilities. The chargers will be installed at hourly and daily passenger parking lots, as well as an employee lot and a maintenance building.
AeroVironment’s TurboDock is designed for commercial applications. It charges at either Level 1 (12 amps/120 volts), or Level 2 (16 amps/240 volts) and allows access control using Bluetooth and a smartphone app with no recurring cellular fees. The configurable, modular design is designed for maximum installation flexibility.
Different parking locations call for different charger configurations – drivers parking their cars at airports prefer a larger number of low-power charging ports, rather than a smaller number of high-power ports, since their cars typically remain parked for longer periods of time.
“Atlanta International has set out to become one of the greenest airports in the world, and AeroVironment will help ATL and its guests support that goal,” said AeroVironment VP Ken Karklin. “TurboDock is packed with features specifically designed to make it ideal for airports, including modular charging configurations, 120 V capability and mobile app-based access control.”
