Revima Offers Digital APU Fuel Saving Solution

In times of unprecedented oil price volatility along with the urgency to reduce aviation’s carbon footprint, FlightWatching by Revima is offering to airlines a digital solution to cut fuel costs and carbon emissions on ground. Its patented digital platform connected in real time to the aircraft is monitoring APU use, scrutinizing the cheapest & lowest carbon intensive power source on ground and providing live recommendations.

“We are glad & enthusiastic to take our part in carbon emission reduction solutions in aviation together with offering substantial savings opportunities for airlines,” Olivier Legrand, president & CEO of Revima Group said.

Following customer experiences in Asia and Europe, Revima says the APU fuel savings digital platform has allowed to cut APU Total Operating Cost (TOC) (MRO 30% / Fuel 70%) by 10% to 50% depending on the aircraft type and airline operations. It also simplifies the Corsia reporting by providing an accurate count of carbon emissions based on aircraft verifiable data.

No aircraft modification is required and deploying the solution takes only a couple of weeks. 

The various levers to reduce use of carbon intensive sources of power on ground are all integrated into “FlightWatching by Revima” unique and patented digital platform. 

·       APU runs are monitored in real time and live alerts are sent as soon as overuse is detected (fuel wasted by long run or by dual GPU and APU runs). 

·       Recommendations on APU optimum start times can also be sent to optimize cabin cooling depending on outside air temperature and time of departure.

·       Whenever a cheaper and lower carbon intensive power source is available at the airport (FEGP, PCA, GPU, ACU), airlines can be notified in real-time and they can take actions.

Legrand added: “in these particular challenging times for airlines, Revima is further extending its scope of services and bringing additional value to its customers thanks to disruptive solutions.”
