The Elephant® BETA-15


Introducing Beta-15 Aircraft DeIcer

The highest truly mobile aircraft deicer in the world – The Elephant® BETA-15 DeIcer

The Elephant® BETA-15 is the highest reaching, truly mobile standard aircraft deicer, requiring no external stabilization for any operational mode. It has all of the excellent characteristics of the regular Elephant® BETA deicer providing firm stability, unsurpassed manpower efficiency, fluid saving capability and minimum overall operational cost.

The Elephant® BETA-15 provides customers all over the world with highly efficient, reliable and safe deicing. The extended telescope reduces application time and minimizes movement around the aircraft. The longer telescope also reduces glycol usage.

The Core features

Optimizing operations


Fluid application

20-240 L pr. min.

Heating systems

Best fuel efficiency

Extended reach

25 m height

Extended reach

A specially designed boom system elevates the operator’s eye level to more than 15,5 m (50′10’’) above ground and the spraying nozzle to more than 25 m (82′) height, keeping the operator’s cabin in front of the truck all the way up.

Due to the proportional hydraulic system, all BETA-15 movements are smooth and provide a wide deicing radius and high horizontal reach, making it ideal for remote deicing with running aircraft engines. Although the BETA-15 was originally developed back in the mid 1980’es (for servicing large aircraft such as Il-76 and An-124), this deicer is available for present and future challenges in modern aviation.

Semi automatic de-icing

The Vestergaard Elephant® BETA-15 de-icer can now be supplied with the new, innovative PPS – Precise Positioning System, which constantly helps ensure the correct, optimal distance between nozzle and aircraft, hence improving safety and reducing workload for the operator. Use of the PPS – Precise Positioning System technology can help you increase your savings – typically up to 20-30%.

Vestergaard’s Data Transmission System (DTS) organizes, collects and processes the deicing data in order to optimize operations of the deicing fleet. Additionally the Data transmission System can organize the dispatch of the deicing fleet.
