Volvo CE and Skanska launch the Electric Site concept
Volvo Construction Equipment together with its customer Skanska began testing the viability of its Electric Site concept at Skanska’s Vikan Kross quarry, near Gothenburg, Sweden.
The idea is to test over 10 weeks several types of all-electric or hybrid vehicles in real-world operation and to verify whether 95% reduction in carbon emissions and 25% reduction in total cost of operations is possible.
Volvo CE developed and provided:
- Prototype HX2 autonomous, battery-electric load carrier
- Prototype EX1 dual-powered, cable-connected excavator (can work in all-electric mode using grid-power)
- Prototype LX1 electric hybrid wheel loader (series-hybrid)
