Sola Group to provide eVertiSky with integrated lighting and charging vertiport paving

The two companies have developed a partnership “aimed at transforming FATO areas in vertiports by implementing PV pavements with integrated LED lighting and wireless charging, thereby enhancing safety during take-off and landing. Additionally, it focuses on advancing research and development in smart FATO infrastructure for varied operational uses, aiming to create adaptable infrastructure capable of supporting a range of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) aircraft, including different eVTOL models,” according to a company statement.

Sandra Formenton, CEO of eVertiSKY, said: “Partnering with Sola Group aligns with our vision of creating advanced, smart vertiports capable of accommodating various UAM aircraft. Our combined R&D efforts aim to streamline takeoff and landing processes at our vertiports to host any type of aircraft, focusing on developing a FATO that meets current operational needs and is adaptable for future UAM advancements.

eVertiSKY’s strategy involves integrating Sola Group’s Solapave into its vertiport design across its current contracted projects aiming to offer a vertiport infrastructure that not only prioritizes safety but also embodies innovation in UAM infrastructure. Dominic Mangles, CEO of Sola Group said “Our joint effort with eVertiSKY is centered on upgrading UAM infrastructure. We aim to develop vertiports that emphasize safety, interoperability, and environmental sustainability, utilizing our advanced pavement systems.

Sola Group will deliver photocatalytic pavements expertise to vertiport design. “This approach encompasses wireless charging, improved ground operations, and adherence to sustainability practices. Solapave, their innovative solar-powered paving system, replaces conventional pavement with solar technology to generate clean energy, featuring a full LED infotainment display and a non-slip surface,” said the press release.
