The Aircraft Refueling Business at the Forefront of Change

In the Aircraft Refueling Business arena, the winds of change are gusting with unprecedented velocity, propelled by strong legislative measures such as the European Green Deal, aimed at meeting ambitious climate targets.

At the core of this transformative landscape, there’s an articulated framework structured around four pivotal drivers of decarbonization in the aviation industry: Airports, Oil Companies, Equipment Construction Companies, and Into-Plane Service Providers. In what can be described as a definitive view of the future, these sectors are preparing for a significant overhaul, as they are intertwined yet integral in fueling not just aircraft but innovation and sustainability in aviation.

ARC NV is positioned at this strategic intersection, ready to navigate the shift with its profound knowledge and expertise in aircraft refueling vehicles’ design, construction, and maintenance. Here’s a closer examination of the challenges and how ARC NV is engineered to catapult the aviation refueling sector into a greener, more sustainable era.

The Challenge: Airports

Airports stand as colossal hubs of transport and technology, now facing the formidable task of integrating new technologies to meet climate targets. The future will see airports investing heavily in electrification, hydrogen fuel infrastructure, and other cutting-edge technologies that align with stringent environmental standards while ensuring the security and safety of operations.

The Challenge: Oil Companies

Oil companies, traditionally the titans of energy, are at a crossroads. With legislative pressure to decrease carbon emissions, they must invest in and develop new, sustainable technologies. Their portfolios are expanding to include alternative fuels that promise to curtail CO2 emissions and uphold the ethos of the Green Deal.

The Challenge: Equipment Construction, Inspection & Maintenance

Companies specializing in constructing, inspecting, and maintaining refueling equipment are venturing into uncharted territories, retrofitting existing vehicles with eco-conscious technologies. This painstaking process must balance embracing innovation, meeting climate targets, and retaining these critical aviation assets’ functionality and safety standards.

The Challenge: Into-Plane Services

For Into-Plane Services, the advent of electric vehicles (PHEV or full EV) presents both an opportunity and a challenge. How these services adapt their operational protocols and safety measures to accommodate the novel needs of the aviation industry during refueling will be of utmost importance.
