Eco-friendly solutions for parked aircrafts
What we do
Smart Climate Scandinavian offers environmentally friendly heating and cooling units for parked commercial aircraft. Our solution takes leverage on the waterborne system for heating or cooling and provides environmentally friendly heating/cooling in a cost efficient way.
When the aircraft is parked on ground at an airport it needs ventilation and pre-conditioned air for heating or cooling of the cabin. The pre-conditioned air is typically provided by an Air Climate Unit, which is either runs on electricity or diesel, or the aircraft internal system which uses jet fuel – in comparison to our waterborne solution this requires relatively much energy and is less cost efficient. Our solution is compatible with any type of airliner and will give you an eco-friendly heating/cooling at reduced operating costs.With our technology there are two winners – the environment and the economy!
What we offer
Design of piping system for connection of PCA-unit.
PCA-unit -Mobile and stationary units for ventilation heating/cooling of parked aircrafts.
IFL-duct -Insulated, flexible lightweight ducting for PCA-units
Installation and commissioning of PCA-units.
Smart Climates PCA unit delivers air for ventilation, heating or cooling of the aircraft according to AHM974 and AHM975. It provides control over energy use and cabin temperature and is suitable for use with all types of aircrafts.
The SC Mobile unit is suitable for aircraft parked at free stands without a boarding bridge. The unit is self-propelled, requires no towing and can easily be maneuvered by one person.
The SC fixed unit is suitable for aircraft parked at stands with a boarding bridge. The unit can be mounted on the ground, hanging under the bridge or even inside a building depending on local preference.
Smart Climates own IFL-duct; insulated, flexible, light weight duct saves up to 20% energy. The duct becomes flat and can easily be folded or rolled when not in use. Material properties makes it light weight, durable and very manageable in cold temperatures.

Smart Climate´s story begins in 1978 in Saudi Arabia when Anders Tengman CTO and founder of Smart Climate Scandinavian AB was working there as an engineer. As Anders frequently flew home to Sweden he couldn´t help but thinking there had to be a way to achieve a better climate in the aircrafts. When boarding the cabin temperature could be as high as 45-50 degrees Celsius. Anders started working with the design of HVAC and plumbing systems in 1968. His long career gives him extensive knowledge within the area and he has been working to improve indoors climate and energy efficiency since the beginning. In the early 2000 the idea came to mind again and Anders started to think about the shaping of the system. In the light of the discussion on the use of fossil fuels and the constantly rising demand for electrical power Anders saw the potential in using the domestic heating system as a source for heating and cooling. At the same time the system is designed for connection to other heat sources as well, such as e.g. heat pumps.
Anders and Tomas met in 2015. Tomas has 25+ years of experience and a proven knowledge of brand management, customer needs assessment, and new market development. Together they founded Smart Climate Scandinavian AB and now strive to make it possible to keep travelling and meeting people all around the world. The company is located in Umeå in Northern Sweden.
Today the new Smart Climate system for heating and cooling of aircrafts is in use at different locations in Sweden and Luleå Airport is one of them.
At Smart Climate we believe:
- in a faster readjustment towards a climate friendlier world and want to take part in the change. By doing so we believe it to be possible to continue travelling and meeting new and old loved ones around the world.
- that new climate friendly technology and smarter use of energy will contribute in a considerable way on our path towards a sustainable future.
- that every step counts and that our solution for parked aircrafts is an important step on the way to climate neutral travel.
