Paris / Héricourt, May 25 2020 - 08h00 CEST – Gaussin (EURONEXT GROWTH : ALGAU - FR0013495298) and Total are jointly developing the world's first full electric ART FULL ELEC ®  (Aircraft Refueller Transporter). Planned for the Airbus industrial site in Toulouse, this prototype will  be  capable  of  towing two  fuel tankers,  with  a fuel  capacity of 30 tons each. Delivery is expected at the end of 2020.  


This partnership between Gaussin and Total will be drawing on the 40 years of know-how of Saft  (a  subsidiary  of  Total)  in  designing  and producing  batteries  for  electric  &  hybrid commercial and industrial vehicles. Saft will provide the lithium-ion batteries for this future fleet. 
The batteries will be entirely developed and manufactured at Saft’s facilities in Nersac and Bordeaux in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of France.
