Together with the Goldhofer group, a leading provider of solutions for heavy-duty and oversized cargo haulage based in Germany, we have developed an electric model of the baggage and cargo tow tractor »SHERPA«, called »SHERPA« E. The emission-free »SHERPA« E can be used indoors as well as outdoors. The Li-Ion battery, based on the »IonMaster« technology, has a particularly high capacity and does not only guarantee a long range even under maximum load, but also a sustained operation across several shifts. The »SHERPA« E can be charged very quickly and without any special charging infrastructure. Moreover, its maintenance costs have been reduced to a minimum. Currently, a prototype is successfully in use at a Swiss airport.
More information about the »SHERPA« E can be obtained on www.sherpa-tractor.de.
