BAE Systems: equips RAF Typhoons

( - The Royal Air Force's Typhoon aircraft will be equipped with 40 new battery-electric ground power units following a recent trial with BAE Systems.

The units will replace diesel-powered systems and reduce harmful emissions by over 90%, while cutting operating costs by 80%.

The old diesel ground power units cost £20 per hour of operation, while the new ground power units cost just £3 per hour and only require an eight-hour charge to power a Typhoon aircraft for a full week.

This will save over 13 million pounds across the fleet over the next decade. The new units also require less maintenance and spare parts.

The ground power units are currently being deployed and there are plans to acquire a further 30.
