The world's first purely electric-powered truck crane, the ZTC250N-EV, has rolled off Zoomlion's production line. 

"We have partnered with the world's leading suppliers for green energy parts and tailored to the usage scenarios and working conditions of truck cranes. We equipped the truck crane with high energy storage density LFP battery, which is the safest in the world," introduced Mr. Wang Qitao, Technical Director of Engineering Cranes Branch of Zoomlion. "The bodywork and chassis applied a ZIC intelligent collaborative control strategy, which perfectly combines the TCEMS high-efficiency energy management system and a BMS battery management system."  

According to the company, the 25-ton pure electric-powered ZTC250N-EV truck crane is economical and environmentally friendly. The truck crane can reach a maximum speed of 90 km/h (56mph) and a maximum gradeability of 50 percent, while energy costs can be reduced by 35 percent when compared to other fuel-powered products in the same class. 

The production of ZTC250N-EV is the result of Zoomlion's philosophy of sustainable development, which is significant for energy saving and emission reduction.

"We had set up a specialized team in 2018, consisting of staff from research, engineering, manufacturing and quality control departments, and completed the production of the truck crane within two years," said Mr. Wang.
