Three electric machines on zero-emission jobsite

Mecalac has deployed three 100% electric machines on a worksite in Annecy, France, which is responsible for power supply to boats and cultural sporting events.

The three machines are: e12 wheeled loader, eS1000 swing loader and eMDX dumper.

The OEM says that this initiative is in line with its commitment to promoting environmentally friendly practices, while guaranteeing optimal performance.

The project has been underway since March 11 and will run until the end of May. Combined with other measures, such as the reuse of excavated soil, the site’s projected carbon footprint is 25% lower than for an equivalent project carried out using standard methods.

Due to the electric machines, this worksite is also said to benefit from lower machinery noise levels – reported to be ten times lower than that of their traditionally powered equipment.

“We are proud to be taking part in this low-carbon project in a location that is particularly close to our hearts. Our electric machines are designed and assembled locally in our Annecy plant,” said Alexandre Marchetta, President, Mecalac Group.
