September 28, 2023

Vestergaard Company is excited to announce its partnership with United Ground Express (UGE) as the North American Launch customer for two innovative products: The Elephant® e-Mini MY Lite and the new and redesigned e-VTS units.

Both fully electric deicing and vacuum toilet service units are built on the electric chassis Vestergaard e.

“We are thrilled to introduce our two new, sustainable ground support units in North America. In collaboration with UGE, we support their UGEco mission for an environmentally committed and carbon-neutral future”, says Peter Haug, Vestergaard’s VP Sales North America.

The electric chassis – Vestergaard e – is available in 9, 12, and 20 MT configurations, with a 27 MT unit planned for the near future, providing equipment commonality for parts and improved efficiency for operators and maintenance training.

With Vestergaard’s electric GSE-units, operators can 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.

Together, Vestergaard and United Ground Express are driving sustainable aviation solutions, shaping a greener tomorrow.
