HarcoSemco is excited to announce its appointment as an Official Partner to WheelTug to supply custom harness assemblies, helping facilitate significant reductions in aircraft ground time. WheelTug is an E Taxi system that includes small electric motors in the nosewheels, enabling an aircraft to drive forward and backward without using its engines or external tugs. An extensive collaborative engineering effort is currently underway to design a cutting edge HarcoSemco custom interconnect assembly to power and control the WheelTug system.

Announcing the deal at the Farnborough International Air Show, Patrick Murphy, President of HarcoSemco, expressed his delight at the new arrangement, “WheelTug has brought a new way of thinking to addressing the importance of TGT and TAT. This new initiative offers great potential to low cost airlines in particular, and HarcoSemco is extremely pleased that WheelTug has recognized our engineering expertise in bringing customized solutions to this challenge.”
