"Atlanta International Airport has set out to become one of the greenest
airports in the world, and AeroVironment will help ATL and its guests
support that goal with our TurboDock EV charging systems," said Ken
Karklin, Vice President and General Manager, Efficient Energy Systems
for AeroVironment. "TurboDock is one of the easiest-to-use and most
cost-effective charging stations available. Packed with features
specifically designed to make it ideal for airports, including modular
charging configurations, 120V capability and mobile app based access
control, TurboDock helps EV drivers proceed with certainty."
The installation of AeroVironment TurboDock charging stations is the
most recent effort by the City of Atlanta and the Hartsfield-Jackson
Atlanta International Airport to turn ATL into one of the greenest
airports in the world. TurboDock charging stations will be located at
the following parking locations at the airport: North and South Domestic
Terminal daily lots, South Employee lot, the Maynard H. Jackson
International Terminal Hourly deck, the International Park-Ride deck,
the ATL Technical Support Campus and Maintenance Building No. 1 in the
ATL airport perimeter.
AeroVironment TurboDock is designed for commercial applications like
those found in Atlanta and other fast growing EV markets. Out of the
box, TurboDock charges at either Level 1 (12 amps/120 volts), or at
Level 2 (16 amps/240 volts). TurboDock is easy-to-use, flexible, offers
low cost installation and features innovative access control using
Bluetooth and a smartphone app, with none of the recurring monthly
cellular fees associated with other networked chargers. The
configurable, modular design allows for maximum installation flexibility.
TurboDock chargers offer power level and charging configurations
appropriate for Airport applications. Having power flexibility allows
for more charging ports for a given budget or available power capacity.
Drivers parking their cars at airports and other transit locations
prefer a larger number of low power charging ports, rather than a
smaller number of high power ports, since their cars typically remain
parked for longer periods of time.
TurboDock charging stations can be found in a growing number of
workplaces, transit stations, hotels, shopping malls and universities.
