ETTRIG - Electric Towbarless Tractor with Range Extender and InteGrated charger



Start date:


End date:


Attraction of customers to electric propulsion systems demands clear advantages and well formulated and proven arguments. Airport logistics is an area were both state and privately owved airports are looking for potential environmental improvements through new technology. This project aims to develop a prototype towbarless tractor that uses a mix of X % diesel and Y % electricity during a work day moving the largest aircrafts and demonstrate this in real-life load cycles. The project will conduct research in innovation and product development methodologies with a production bias. The electro-hybrid componets developed by the project will also find potential use in other workmachines and heavy on-road vehicles.
