        What Is GSE In Aviation?

        GSE stands for Ground Support Equipment. This is the term for any equipment that helps turn around an aircraft while on the ground (at the airport / airfield). Aircraft GSE could be from a range of ground handling equipment on the apron including airport tugs, baggage trolleys, stairs to the aircraft, electric power, tow and pushback trucks, passenger buses, refuelling equipment / tankers, catering, and even water bowsers / toilet (lavatory) servicing vacuum tankers such as the products above.

        GSE / Ground Support Equipment is vital for maintaining aircraft and especially for turning around commercial aircraft within their turn around schedules to ensure the airline keeps flying without delay. Any delay can cause a loss in revenue in which is why it is important to make sure not only you have the right equipment available but also a reliable product that gets the job done efficiently.

         

        GSE Water Truck / Water Bowser

        GSE water trucks / water bowsers deliver Non-potable water to the aircraft for washing hands in the lavatory sinks, as well as potable water for making hot drinks in the galley. The water is supplied by the relevant truck / trailer and pumped into the relevant tanks on the aeroplane.

         

        GSE Toilet Service Unit / Vehicle

        GSE Toilet Service Units / Vehicles empty the aircrafts sewage lavatory tank by pumping the waste into a vacuum tanker / truck that then takes the waste away for treatment and disposal. During this servicing of the aircraft's toilets, the waste tank on board the aircraft is then partially refilled with a mixture of bio-based disinfectant and water to deodorize the waste tank and kill any bacteria. The above vacuum tanker / toilet service unit has got a twin tank one side being for the waste that is removed from an commercial aircraft and another tank for the water and "blue juice" disinfectant.

         

         

        GSE Toilet Tanker vs Truck

        As part of a ground handling service of an aircraft there are multiple rolls needed for a turn around of a commercial airliner, this is why you see multiple vehicles and trailers around a aircraft at the airport. From refuelling the aircraft to removing baggage and reloading baggage as well as everything else needed for the next flight. To minimise the amount of vehicles needed, it is a great solution to operate toilet service units as a towable trailer because this will mean that you don't have a single dedicated vehicle to service the toilets. The tow vehicle can also be able to achieve a secondary task such as bringing in cleaning crew, or even removing the bags of rubbish from a aircraft, giving you a single unit that can be used for multiple rolls. Another great advantage to using a trailered vacuum tanker is that not only is the unit a lot cheaper than a toilet service truck but also if the vehicle was to break down you are able to still use the toilet service unit by simply using another tow vehicle, making the availability of these units even better. There are options to use a toilet service truck these units tend to be more expensive than the trailer unit as it is a complete self propelled vehicle with a toilet tank fitted to the chassis. The advantage to operating a toilet service truck is that it is on one unit, meaning that when it returns to the depot it will take up less room than a truck and a trailer, giving you more storage space.

        Trailer Engineering can offer both toilet service trailers as well as a option for a toilet service truck and even a option for a demountable skid base toilet tank that can be fitted onto the back of a lorry / truck and then removed to be mounted on a trailer or even to be left in the depot as a stand alone toilet unit.
