How ION’s Platform Helped Design, Power and Deploy an All-electric Excavator to Operate in Extremely Cold Temperatures

Introduction

ION Energy partnered with a leading European battery pack maker to enable its customer – a European construction equipment maker – to deploy their first, fully electric excavator.

As the electrification of transport rapidly spread to multiple other industries, the customer felt the need to build sustainable, zero-emission construction machines that could replace the diesel engine completely.

The customer envisioned designing and deploying a range of compact, fully rechargeable clean energy construction equipment. Their challenge was to undertake the first electrification project for an excavator, that would operate under extremely low temperatures (-20 degrees). The success of this project was critical in terms of time and cost which led the customer to look for a reliable partner who could help them power their first, fully electric excavator, within a year.
