In 2014, the Calgary Airport announced major infrastructure projects along with the construction of a new 185,800m2 international terminal. This ambitious project generated new challenges related to passenger transport. The airport therefore launched a call for tenders for the design of 100% electric and innovative shuttles specifically tailored to its needs: efficient shuttles that would provide a unique experience for travelers.
This is why FPInnovations brought together several partners, including Deutschman Design, PRECICAD, KARGO and IVI, to create a consortium of experts.
For this project, the IVI engineers focused mainly on the design of the electric traction system for the shuttle.
