Electric crawler crane new from Sennebogen
By Alex Dahm15 August 2022
Manufacturer Sennebogen has announced a fully electrically powered crawler crane.
The 653 E Electro Battery is a 50 tonne capacity machine with a telescopic boom. It will be launched at the Bauma construction equipment exhibition in Munich, Germany, this October.
Combining the benefits of electric power with those of a telescopic crawler crane “means you work completely emission-free and remain maximally flexible thanks to the Dual Power Management System,” Sennebogen said.
As the first electric model in Sennebogen’s range it was developed in collaboration with Dutch Sennebogen dealer Van den Heuvel. “Through the close contact of Van den Heuvel with Dutch crane rental and construction companies, valuable market requirements from the progressive Dutch market were brought into the development partnership.”
The crane’s 210 kW-h battery pack carried onboard allows autonomous operation in battery-only mode, or it can be plugged into the mains electricity grid via a cable. When plugged in the machine runs from this site power with any excess going to top-up the battery.
In addition to the crane emitting no engine exhaust emissions at the point of use, it offers quieter and smoother operation than diesel-engined models. A further benefit is reduced maintenenace in that, for example, there are no periodic engine oil and filter changes.
More information and technical detail will be provided as it becomes available so be sure to check back here for updates.
Look out for the new fully electric 50 tonne capacity Sennebogen 653 E Electro Battery at the Bauma construction equipment exhibition in Munich, Germany, from 24 to 30 October 2022
