Indeed, the Italian airport infrastructure industry has remained strong and successful despite the complications caused by the pandemic. Current predictions for the rest of 2022 foresee that it will continue to remain prosperous, further securing Italy’s position as one of the world leaders in airport infrastructure.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">&nbsp;</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Italian expertise on offer during the event will include companies specializing in valve and part manufacturing, information and communication technologies, lights and warning beacons and other aviation equipment, technologies and engineering solutions.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">&nbsp;</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Italy also has two associations present at the event: OICE and Air Tech Italy.&nbsp; OICE is the employer’s association that represents more than 400 Italian engineering, architectural and technical companies, while Air Tech Italy is the companies’ association specialised in supplying products, technologies and services for airports and air-traffic control.

Therefore, for OICE, Air Tech Italy and their associated companies, attending the Airport Show 2022 will be an extremely valuable opportunity. We are excited to give each of the 28 exhibiting companies the chance to maximise the success of their businesses. It is also an enlightening way of learning more about infrastructure projects in the UAE airport sector and the wider area (including the Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia), enhancing Italy’s technological abilities and fostering useful contacts for business development. After the success of the hybrid event in 2021, the UAE’s Italian Embassy, the Consulate General in Dubai and the Dubai offices of ICE are proud to support OICE and Air Tech Italy in this project and discover more about the future of sustainability, digitalisation and urban air mobility across the world.”</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">&nbsp;</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Roberto Carpaneto, Vice President of the OICE, added: "Italian consultancy and engineering companies have worked in over 80 major airports in Italy and in the world.

The Airport Show and the UAE, thanks to its strategic position, represent a good opportunity for our Italian companies to create new business opportunities among key countries such as GCC, Africa and Asia.

Those recordings show that 400 Hz ground power units rarely draw full current. And if they do, it’s only for very short periods of time. Due to its variable frequency drive technology that allow step-less regulation of the discharge temperature, the intelligent ITW GSE PCA, the brain of the IPM system, can easily cope with those periods.”</p> <p>At all times, the PCA ensures that the total power consumption does not exceed the power capacity limit.</p> <p>“When connected GPUs draw more power i.e. during aircraft engine start, the PCA smoothly reduce the its own consumption. And because the GPUs only require more power for a very short time i.e. from a few seconds to a few minutes, passengers presumably not even register any rise of the cabin temperature,” said Feuga.</p> <p>“The IPM system is a big advantage for airports that have reached their power capacity limits. Besides room for connection of more equipment to existing stands without investments in expensive infrastructure, the simpler installation reduces maintenance costs.
