Suppliers of special vehicles such as concrete mixers, compact loaders or excavators relish these developments. Construction sites, however, also produce noise and exhaust emissions, with legislators and local authorities worldwide increasingly taking action to combat this problem. “Whenever construction projects are put out to tender nowadays, the level of CO2 emissions is increasingly among the selection criteria”, explains Gerhard Stempfer, ZF expert in electromobility in Industrial Technology. One logical approach here is to promote electromobility with zero local emissions on construction sites too. Avoiding the use of diesel eliminates exhaust emissions. And it also reduces noise levels.
