The Goldhofer Airport Technology success story continues: The new towbarless aircraft tractor "PHOENIX" E is generating spectacular attention. After the successful introduction of the first vehicle at LEOS Frankfurt, the first of two vehicles will now be handed over to PortGround Leipzig at the GSE-Expo in Paris. This shows that more and more airports and ground handlers are placing their trust in powerful support for emission-free ground handling.

The »PHOENIX« E at a glance:
The »PHOENIX« towbarless aircraft tractor is the flagship of the Goldhofer tow tractor fleet. It is a powerful performer, offering speeds of up to 32 km/h for maintenance tows. It also has the versatility to handle the full range of today’s aircraft up to a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 352 tons. This makes it one of the biggest-selling tow tractors on the market. The e-version comes with Goldhofer’s tried-and-tested »IonMaster« technology, a high-performance electric drive that works with extremely efficient 700 V lithium-ion batteries and is engineered to the highest standards of safety. In addition, the TMS system (Thermo Management System), which is part of the »IonMaster« concept, delivers very short charging times, and supports fast and opportunity charging at all standard AC and DC charging points up to 150 kW.
