Saft Lithium-ion battery system is being used to power the first hybrid tractor for moving large aircraft between hangars and passenger gates at airports, as reported in the Autumn 2013 edition of bestmagazine.

The Saft lithium-ion batteries and BMS will power the Kalmar Motor TBL 800. The TBL 800 is suitable for large wide-bodied aircraft and the trial run will take place at German airports soon.
