Emover THE NEW STANDARD IN EMISSION-FREE AIRCRAFT MOVING

PURE INNOVATION FOR NEXT GENERATION AIRCRAFT MOVING

Every day there are more than 100,000 flights worldwide. Doubling of airport traffic within the next 15 years is a major challenge for airport logistics.
Our electrically powered emover is able to push and pull an unprecedented range of narrow-body and wide-body aircraft with a towing weight of up to 600 t. That unrivalled universality is the key to improve your aircraft moving

processes. The ability to clear gates independently from the aircraft type enables the coverage of a complete terminal section of close-by gates. This avoids inefficient unloaded drives. The effected higher degree of availability, boosted by a real time Ground Handling Planning software, will improve your airport throughput and will significantly reduce your asset costs.

YOUR BENEFITS

UNPRECEDENTED UNIVERSALITY
  • Unrivalled range of narrow-body and wide-body aircraft – from the Embraer 170 to Airbus A380
  • Maximal towing weight of 600 t (661 tn. sh.)
 
ZERO EMISSIONS
  • Equipped with a high capacity lithium-ion battery and an AC on-board charger
  • DC high performance charger interface for fastest charging
  • Electrical wheel hub motors with a total power of 720 kW
SAFEST OPERATION
  • Nose landing gear remains on the ground
  • During braking the aircraft moves according to NLG’s steering angle
  • No danger of jack knife incidents
  • Operator-independent safety systems
  • Permanent force control
    • Push-/ pull- and torque-forces are accurately measured
    • All forces are controlled in accordance with aircraftspecific force profiles
  • Brake away force minimization
    • The continuously increasing towing force will be dropped as soon as the aircraft moves
    • Most sensitive way to push and pull an aircraft
  • Steering Angle Control (SAC)
    • Permanent control and limitation of steering angle
    • Efficient oversteering protection
  • Autonomous positioning
    • Low speed drive to the hooking position
    • Self-centering and angle alignment
  • Customized Aircraft Protection System (CAPS) for collision protection
OUTSTANDING MANEUVERABILITY

180° wheel steering angle enables:

  • Rotation around the nose landing gear axis or around emover’s central point
  • Grab and lateral drive
  • This safes hangar space
IMPROVED AIRPORT TRAFFIC THROUGHPUT

The universality of emover enables the coverage of an entire terminal section of close-by gates. This:

  • Prevents inefficient unloaded drives
  • Ensures a higher degree of availability
  • Reduces the quantity of needed pushback resources
