TLD lavatory and water trucks have been present on the Chinese market for over 10 years. With the increased focus on reducing harmful emissions and using clean energy, it was decided to develop a fully electric powered vacuum aircraft lavatory servicing vehicle. The project began in late 2015 and the first prototype was built in July 2016 at our factory in Wuxi, China.
With a 900 Gallon (3400L) total tank capacity (600 Gallon waste tank + 300 Gallon rising tank), the LSP-900-V-e is able to service 1xA380 (554 gallon), 3xA330 (184.92 gallon), almost 20xA320 (30.91gal), 35xB737 (17 gallon), or 2×747-8 (300 gallon) before the waste must be disposed of.
The LSP-900-V-e has the same great features inherent to this product line:
– The frontal approach towards the aircraft significantly reduces the risk of impact and enables a one-man operation of the machine, which also minimizes labor costs.
– The elevating working basket can extend to a height of up to 5 m (16.4’), enabling this machine to service all commercial aircrafts.
– The compact nature of this equipment ensures it can be shipped in a 20GP container: L x W x H = 6025mm (5800mm by dismantling the front and rear bumper) x 2290mm x 1880mm.
The fully electric power train of the LSP-900-V-e does not emit any exhaust gas, minimizing its environmental impact both in terms of noise and emissions. Maintenance requirements are also significantly reduced.
Furthermore, high capacity (600Ah) lead-acid or Li-Ion batteries enable the equipment to travel for at least 75km whilst fully loaded and on a single charge.
