Volvo CE researches electric machine usage

A research project by Volvo Construction Equipment and partners aims to make construction’s transition to electric power easier.

The Electric Worksite (E-Worksite) project, which launched earlier this year in Gothenburg, Sweden, tests electric machines’ specific requirements across different tasks within an urban environment.

Together with multiple municipalities, cities, and academic and industry partners, Volvo CE is testing every part of how an electric machine is put to work from a system perspective – from charging infrastructure through to energy supply and more.

“We want to collectively take on the complex task of understanding the electric ecosystem and guide our customers on how best to move forward in this transition” says Niklas Lindblom, Project Manager at Advanced Engineering Programs, Volvo CE.

“Through this partnership we will be connecting all parts of the customer value chain in order to build up shared knowledge and innovation capabilities to ensure our electric future is fit for any construction challenge.”

E-Worksite will explore the site requirements for electromobility over the next two years across a variety of different applications.

It is regarded as a vital next step in the manufacturer’s electrification journey and will help in its commitment to achieving net-zero value chain greenhouse gas emissions by 2040, as validated by the Science Based Targets initiative.
