SGW Designworks produced a revolutionary new system for the JetGo 900, a ground power unit that needed a complete redesigna and a Tier-4-compliant drive train.
AERO Specialties is a leader in the Ground Support Equipment (GSE) market. Their products are used in the operation of airports and air bases worldwide.
The company's existing lineup of JetGo ground power units includes a diesel hybrid variant. However, with new Tier 4 diesel emissions regulations, it was time to redesign the diesel JetGo with a completely new look and a new Tier 4 compliant drive train.
GSE products are typically used and stored outdoors, and while users are skilled and well-trained, they are often rushed and under pressure. As one of these products, the JetGo would be subjected to a lot of abuse and would need to be designed accordingly.
SGW Designworks designed the JetGo 900 for ultimate durability, with a look that sets the product apart from its competition.
The design of the JetGo 900 incorporates unique styling, effective thermal management, and integration of the diesel / electric power generation system as well as controls.
The product launched 14 months after the project's start, and it received a prestigious Good Design Award in 2019.
