Vestergaard Company has named United Ground Express as the North American launch customer for the Elephant e-Mini MY Lite and new and refurbished e-VTS units.
The fully electric de-icing and vacuum toilet service units are built on the electric Vestergaard e chassis.
The electric chassis is available in 9, 12 and 20 MT configurations with a 27 MT unit planned for the near future.
They offer common parts and improved efficiency for operators and maintenance training.
Peter Haug, VP Sales North America at Vestergaard, said: “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.”
FSM Group has placed an order for another 6 Elephant e-BETA de-icing units from Vestergaard Company to use at Calgary International Airport.
The 6 new units add to the 12 purchased last year for the Calgary Central De-icing Facility and will be in operation in autumn this year.
The Elephant e-BETA is electrically operated with a hybrid option and has been in operation in Canada, the US and Europe for several years.
Anders Larsen, Chief Sales Officer of Vestergaard, said: “We are delighted to once again have earned the trust of FSM Group and to be recognized for our dedication to quality and sustainable innovation. This order not only reaffirms our position in the market but also motivates us to continue pushing the boundaries and setting new industry standards.”
