Vestergaard Company is proud to announce the award of a major contract of ten Elephant® Beta units to service British Airways in London Heathrow. The ten new Elephant® Beta units will all use the Vestergaard Company DTS (Data Transmission System) and will also have the new Vestergaard PPS (Precise Positioning System) mounted to assist the operators and improve safety.
British Airways and Vestergaard have been collaborating on deicing and water- and toilet services in London Heathrow since 1985. 24 deicers and 10 water- and toilet service trucks from Vestergaard are currently operating for British Airways in London Heathrow. Five new toilet service units will soon be delivered in addition to the ten new Elephant® Beta units.
“We are very pleased that British Airways has once again chosen Vestergaard Company A/S as the provider of the new aircraft deicers”, says Lars Barsoe, Sales Manager in Vestergaard Company. The Elephant® Beta units will be deployed in October/November 2014 at London Heathrow.
