One of the keys to long battery life is
the temperature management system
(TMS) that is a part of the Goldhofer
IonMaster Technology. With its cooling
compressor and heater, it ensures that
the battery temperature is always in
the optimum range between 15 and
40 C. Dube says this system adds 25
percent to the range of the vehicle and
increases the battery's life significantly.
The modular battery concept in the
Regardless of battery-configuration, the PHOENIX E is
capable of handling all common passenger and cargo
aircraft on the market, from the ERJ170 to the B777.
PHOENIX E starts in the basic version
with 66 kWh. The battery system can
be extended depending on performance
requirements up to 165 kWh.
In addition to an all-electric
model, a hybrid solution is available
with 66 kWh battery capacity and a
range extender.
Not all benefits related to savings
can be easily measured in numbers.
" The most frequently heard feedback
from our customers during all
test drives and demo operations was
that the PHOENIX E adds substantial
value and comfort for the aircraft
tractor operator, " Dube says. " This is a
significant upgrade to the workplace in
terms of operator health and mood. "
The PHOENIX E turns Goldhofer's towbarless
aircraft tractor into a zero-emissions vehicle.
the case of spare parts - makes long
downtimes a thing of the past. Our customers
and we, ourselves, are also very
happy with our online training courses
and online support for maintenance work
using smart glasses, all of which brings
enormous savings in travel expenses. "
Electric vs. Diesel
In addition to " outstanding total vehicle
efficiency and availability with the highest
level of zero-emission performance, "
Dube says the PHOENIX E has enormous
potential for real energy savings compared
to conventional tow tractors.
One of the advantages of the PHOENIX
E is lower operating costs. According to
Dube, up to 40 percent energy cost savings
based on an annual operating time
of 2,500 hours and up to 30 percent less
maintenance cost is possible. Maintenance
intervals are extended because the
electric drive does not have idling components
like the diesel version does. The
electric drive also is less complex and
has fewer parts than diesel. Less maintenance
means less downtime.
The e-version comes with Goldhofer's
IonMaster Technology, which allows
short charging times and supports quick
opportunity charging. The PHOENIX E
can be charged at all standard AC and
DC charging points. It takes just 30 minutes,
for example, to charge a 66 kWh
battery from 20 to 80 percent in the case
of opportunity charging at a fast DC
charging station with a charging capacity
of 70 kW.
The PHOENIX E is designed to meet the
demands of both today and tomorrow,
according to Dube.
" We at Goldhofer are convinced
that true sustainability is only possible
if our products are technologically
sophisticated and are reliable in every
respect, " Dube says.
" With our groundbreaking Goldhofer
IonMaster Technology, we are able to
offer durable, economical vehicles with
incredibly high operational readiness
and outstanding performance, and thus
future-oriented, " he adds.
Furthermore, Dube says ground handlers
can look forward to Goldhofer's
new LINK IoT platform, which combines
effective telematics, monitoring
and condition-based maintenance
tools for Goldhofer products and solutions.
The LINK IoT platform has been
launched with the first basic monitoring
information and will be expanded
step by step.
