China-headquartered BYD Co Ltd recently unveiled two new electric tow tractor models. The tugs are ideal for airport ground support equipment (GSE) needs including tarmacs and supporting aviation logistic centres and facilities, and also allow for rapid, restriction-free charging. BYD said that its tugs offer greater energy and productivity efficiencies as well as lower operating costs and easier maintenance, as compared to its diesel, gas or lead acid battery counterparts. With a 25-t towing capacity, BYD’s T250, rear cabin tug, and the T250F, forward cabin tug, are well designed, heavy duty solutions for both luggage transport and towing of regional jets. Using BYD’s proprietary iron-phosphate battery technology, the tugs are equipped with a fast charger integrated to the tractor, making the charging process easy and clean.
