Swissport needed a Bowser that would connect to the aircraft to empty the toilets and then insert fluid back into the aircraft in a fast turn around to get the aeroplane back out for the next flight. They also needed something reliable that wouldn’t freeze in the colder weathers to avoid delays.
Trailer Engineering built a bespoke 1000 Litre Toilet service unit which has EU approval for towing around on public highways complete with twin tank (clean & grey) diesel engine driven vacuum pump for waste removal, electric pump for clean water replacement complete with automatic trace wire heating system on all pumps and hoses to avoid frost. We also installed an immersion heater for the tank, to prevent the contents of the tank from freezing overnight.
Swissport now has many of our Bowsers in many UK Airports which is helping aircraft turn around faster with the new state of the art Bowsers. We also made them a larger version in 2000 Litres & Also Drinking Water Bowsers with the same heating system to prevent them from freezing.
