247GT Launches New Range of Electric Tugs & Tractors

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new range of entirely electric-powered aviation tugs and tractors.

Inter Airport EuropeIf you attended Inter Airport Europe, the 22nd International Exhibition for Airport Equipment, Technology, Design and Services in Munich last week, you may have seen us promote the new equipment from our stand.

The new range manufactured in the UK, Europe, and Asia will cater for many different size aircraft. Available with either Lead Acid or LION batteries and in some cases built-in chargers, the range will be marketed under the new brand, ElectriTUG.

The first electric tug unit available is the GT1000, which is manufactured in the UK. This model is capable of moving 22,000lbs /10-tonne aircraft in very tight spaces.

The nose wheel is lifted without the need for any winches or straps and the built-in charger and high output batteries provide long endurance.

Demonstration units will be available soon. Please look out for further announcements about our electric tug and tractor range or contact us for further information.
