A battery powered aircraft tug is sparking lots of interest on the Lektro stand in Hall 3. Taking just 6h to re-charge, the Lektro AP8850SD is capable of towing up to 100,000lb (45,000kg). Vice-president Valdis Skilins says Lektro was the first company in the world to develop the concept of battery powered vehicles when its first tug rolled off the production line in 1967. "It's highly manoeuvrable and is environmentally friendly as it doesn't cause noise, petrol and diesel pollution."
