Celebi has always been driven and attracted to technology developments especially if they have a positive impact on the environment and make the ground a better place for our people to work. In India, we were the first to bring in Electric tugs, Electric pushback and further placing orders to replace existing equipment with electric ones. There is a rise of demand for sustainable technology and this has accelerated the pace of innovations across aviation industry.
In 2019, Celebi introduced Taxi Bots in Indian aviation, and Air India became the first commercial airline in the world to use them. Taxi bots help cut fuel consumption by 85% by towing narrow-bodied aircraft from the terminal gate to the take-off point with the planes' engines turned off; they also reduce foreign object damage by 50%.
Bridge-mounted equipment (BME) services that provides cooling and power to the aircraft when parked is another eco-friendly service provided by Celebi at Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore airports. BME services reduce CO2 emission (approx. 80-85%) and noise pollution.
