EVTV's newly-launched strategic partnership with Garsite to provide high-performance, efficient refuelers to aviation industry
OSCEOLA, AR / ACCESSWIRE / February 1, 2023 / Envirotech Vehicles, Inc. (NASDAQ:EVTV), a provider of new zero-emission, purpose-built electric vehicles ("EVTV"), announces today that EVTV, through its strategic partnership with Garsite, a leader in aviation refueling equipment, will deliver its first all-electric aircraft refueler to Atlantic Aviation in Colorado.
Phillip Oldridge, Chief Executive Officer of Envirotech Vehicles, commented, "There's a special irony in that even owners and operators of fuel-delivery systems themselves are looking to electrify their vehicles. We are proud to deliver the first all-electric aircraft refueler to Atlantic Aviation and appreciate their industry leadership. We have received significant interest for electric refuelers and 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 a 900-gallon capacity aviation gasoline (or, "avgas") truck with an electric-vehicle chassis. The fueling module incorporates a Total Control Systems (TCS) 3000 electronic register with an added pressure switch, which allows the system in the vehicle to hold longer charges.
"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 Garsite Progress LLC. "We have also 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."
Oldridge discussed EVTV's all-electric aircraft refueler on the AviationPros podcast on Jan. 27, 2023. Those interested can tune into the podcast by visiting AviationPros.com/Podcasts.
