GSE – Airport Industry

On-time take-off for operators and passengers.

Streams of people and goods alternate relentlessly within the world’s major airports. The apron of an airport is the nerve centre where numerous operations take place, with the safety and speed of which being crucial in a world regulated by take-off and landing slots.

Vehicles such as boarding ramps, baggage tractors, passenger stairs and hold loaders are just a few examples of ground vehicles using Hydroven hydraulic power units.

High Performance

Cargo and baggage loaders

Baggage and cargo are loaded into aircraft holds by means of conveyor belts or elevating platforms. In all cases, the movement and lifting of these systems are managed by a hydraulic power unit.


Fingers are a convenient way to carry out passenger embarkation and disembarkation operations without increasing vehicle traffic on the terminal apron. The correct positioning of the finger at the aircraft entrance door is achieved by operating controls that lift and stretch it, the mechanisms of which depend on Hydroven hydraulic power units.

Pushback tractors

Aircraft are moved from the aprons to the maintenance hangars by means of special dedicated vehicles. Hydroven power units provide assistance to the steering, parking brake and hydraulic lift and towing management.

Docking vehicles and systems

Countless service vehicles coexist in the air-side area, amongst which being those in charge of moving stairs for passenger disembarkation operations. Hydroven power units even manage the lifting of stairs


Technology for the world of air transport

By definition, airports are complex systems in which efficiency and safety for the benefit of the passenger are the primary objectives. The reliability of service vehicles and equipment also depends on the hydraulic systems they are fitted with, which must guarantee safe working shifts.
