With Baker Hughes’ broad energy technology portfolio, which includes both hydrogen-ready turbines and heat recovery solutions ideal for microgrid applications, this collaboration will accelerate the adoption and development of customized microgrids to address each airport’s specific needs.

‘Baker Hughes’ commitment to emissions reductions has allowed us to develop and successfully deploy low-carbon and hydrogen technologies to advance the energy transition in many industries,’ says Bob Perez, vice president of project development at Baker Hughes. ‘The opportunity to bring these solutions to airports, in collaboration with Avports’ proven track record in airport management, is very promising as the increasing needs and demands of these infrastructures must be more resilient, efficient and cost-effective.’

Together, Avports and Baker Hughes are committed to a more sustainable industry that will bring maximum value to airport owners, users and communities.

‘Providing a technical and economic roadmap to airports to meet their energy needs of the future is key as an airport management and operations company,’ says Jorge Roberts, CEO of Avports. ‘Our partnership with Baker Hughes brings world-class technology and know-how together with our ability to support airport customers to realize these solutions at their facility.’
