Vestergaard Company’s fully electric 12 t chassis is able to carry a number of GSE applications, e.g. water and lavatory carts. The first version is equipped with a 40 kwh lithium-ion battery with enough capacity to drive up to approximately 50 km and operate for approximately 12 hours.
The electrical chassis is based on standard industrial, electronic components, which are thoroughly tried and tested. The unit can be equipped with a fully-enclosed cabin with heat and air-condition, or it can be delivered without doors in an open-configuration.
The unit comes with an on-board charger which depending on the power available in the airport can charge the battery fully in 4-9 hours. The unit also has an option for a plug for fast-charging which can charge the battery to 80 percent capacity in 60 minutes. Optionally, customer can choose a range extender with a gasoline generator that charges the battery.
With an electric chassis, operators can now operate equipment in closed gate areas with zero emission and no small particle pollution. Furthermore, noise is practically eliminated as there is no need for engine idle on the ramp.
