OLGA's Presentation on Sustainable Aviation

During the session on Aviation Game Changing Projects Supported by Horizon Europe, which was moderated by CINEA, OLGA presented its taxibot project, amongst other project results. The OLGA taxibot solution offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Fuel Savings: Significant reductions in fuel consumption during taxiing.

  • Greenhouse Gas Reduction: Decreased emissions of CO2, NOx, and other pollutants.

  • Operational Efficiency: Enhanced efficiency in taxiing operations.

  • Noise Reduction: Lower noise levels, contributing to a quieter airport environment.

The session also featured contributions from Airbus, the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), and the University of Southern Denmark, providing a comprehensive view of the latest advancements in aviation.

ILA Berlin 2024 was a resounding success. The event attracted around 95,000 participants from 60 nations, reflecting the global interest in the future of aerospace.
