Volvo CE unveils first machines in full line of electric compact excavators and wheel loaders at bauma
Volvo Construction Equipment has unveiled two zero-emissions machines – the ECR25 excavator and L25 wheel loader – from its new range of electric compact machines.
Aimed at one of the most competitive segments of the excavator market, Volvo Construction Equipment's (Volvo CE) new EC200E crawler excavator is the perfect partner for a wide range of medium-duty applications. The 20-ton model is a purpose-built machine whose specifications position it between the company's existing EC220E and EC180E units in the EMEA region. Ideal for in-house operations or as part of a rental fleet, and suitable for construction, utilities, road infrastructure and more, Volvo says that the EC200E provides superior performance with excellent value, ensuring high customer profitability.
More than two years ahead of schedule, Volvo CE has achieved its end of 2020 WWF Climate Savers commitment, aimed at reducing the amount of energy the company produces in its plants.
Volvo Construction Equipment's Electric Site project aims to test the world's first "emission-free" quarry by electrifying each transport stage, from excavation to primary crushing, and transport to secondary crushing. It uses both electric and autonomous Volvo CE prototype machines, plus new machine and fleet control systems and an entirely integrated real-time site management system. Together, these form a complete Electric Site solution. Volvo CE and its customer Skanska tested the viability of the Electric Site research project for 10 weeks at a Skanska's Vikan Kross quarry near Gothenburg, Sweden. Heavy Equipment Guide staff were on site to see the operation and learn about the results.
