EVIA AERO, Banat Airport Caransebes to develop low emission airport infrastructure

The Bremen based aviation company EVIA AERO and the Romanian Banat Airport Caransebes have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the joint development of energy systems for sustainable aviation.

“The aim is to create the necessary infrastructure at the airport for sustainable and therefore future-proof aviation with electric and hydrogen aircraft” according to the press release. “This will start with the construction of a 49-hectare photovoltaic plant (62 megawatts of power) on the airport site. This lays the foundation for the production of green electricity, the basis for environmentally friendly flights with electric aircraft. The company’s own production of green hydrogen will then gradually follow and the project will be rounded off with storage stations and hydrogen and electricity refuelling stations. In future, the green energy generated will not only be available to EVIA AERO aircraft, but also to other airlines that operate electric or hydrogen jets. Electrified ground handling and drone projects will also benefit from the planned production and storage options.

“The company created by the joint venture between EVIA AERO and Banat Airport Caransebes is responsible for project development and applying for EU funding. The go-ahead will be given this year with the submission of building applications, with construction scheduled to begin in 2025 and the photovoltaic system to be completed in 2026.”

Florian Kruse, founder and CEO of EVIA AERO, commented: “We currently expect to build the necessary infrastructure by the end of 2026 and launch our low-emission flights in Romania in 2027. Routes are planned to the Romanian capital Bucharest, Tuzla on the Romanian Black Sea coast and Chisinau in Moldova.”

Daniel Olariu, CEO of Banat Airport Caransebes said that more than 30 jobs would be created in the mid-term.
