180kVA Ground Power Unit
G15Q
180kVA, 400Hz Ground Power Unit
Beak Ground Power Units (GPUs) are built to last and are known for their reliability, durability, longevity, robustness, efficiency and ease of use. 
 
Beak Engineering is proud to be the largest original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of 100% Australian designed and built aviation ground power equipment. 
 
Why Beak? 
 
Over the past 15 years Beak has worked continuously to develop our GPU with a common sense practical approach. Our experience has been gained over many years of providing GPUs to Qantas 
Airways, Australian Department of Defence, New Zealand Defence Force and several other Australian and International clients. Our clients have provided us with some very good design specifications which have culminated in the latest range of 60 to 180 kVA units
