Electric power by TREPEL

Looking forward - electro power by TREPEL

zero emission - full performance

Cleaner air, GSE noise emission reduction, a cutback in CO² emission, alternatives to diesel engines that are becoming more complicated and more expensive in purchasing – all very good reasons to push ground handlers to invest in electric GSE. 

TREPEL's new electric tractors and loaders address these issues without the conventional restrictions of electric vehicles. The new generation of CHAMP electric and CHALLENGER electric features an autonomy for one work shift, applying the well-established 80V technology and infrastructure. Performance is similar to the diesel-operated GSE, allowing a smooth transition from diesel to electrically driven GSE with no disruption to apron turnaround operations.  

  • zero emission
  • low maintenance
  • full performance
  • long autonomy

It’s time to go electric!

The new TLTV CHARGER 380


Fitted with cutting-edge technology components and manufactured at very high-quality level, the TREPEL CHARGER 380 will change the world of aircraft towing. 

COMFORT – its spacious cab fitting up to 3 persons and the hydro-pneumatic suspension provide optimal comfort during operations.

POWER – with 309 kW on board, the CHARGER 380 is the most powerful in its category and can move aircraft faster. A special feature on the drive line allows empty driving at low engine rpm, saving fuel costs and reducing ambient noise. 

SAFETY – TREPEL Aircraft Protection System (TAPS) opens new possibilities to protect the aircraft, providing the operator with valuable information in order to detect, anticipate and avoid aircraft damage. In the case of an emergency, the aircraft can be released in the blink of an eye. 

STABILITY – Drive line components designed and calculated to last the lifetime of the tractor, significantly reducing the need for maintenance. An extremely strong steel construction permits heavy-duty operations - 41.2 tons lifting capacity and 13 tons drawbar pull. 

Make room on your apron for the CHARGER 380!
