EV manufacturer Envirotech Vehicles (EVTV), working with aviation refueling equipment maker Garsite, will deliver an electric aircraft refueler to Atlantic Aviation in Colorado.
Phillip Oldridge, CEO of EVTV, said: “We are proud to deliver the first all-electric aircraft refueler to Atlantic Aviation and further plan to continue fulfilling the aviation industry’s demand for more sustainable ground support equipment through our partnership with Garsite.”
The newly delivered vehicle is an aviation gasoline (or “avgas”) truck with a 900-gallon capacity and an EV chassis.
“Thanks to our relationship with EVTV, we have been able to develop an affordable and reliable green alternative for aviation refueling,” said Teresa Montgomery, VP and GM of Garsite. “We have been purposeful in building a vehicle that is similar to operate as our traditional combustion engine refuelers so that our ground support teams can easily and intuitively shift to these electric models with minimal additional training.”
