Silent and clean: Electric concrete mixers


Concrete producer Betonmortel Nederland has ordered ten 11- and 15 cubic metres big concrete mixers that are driven electric. Charging overnight is enough to feed the battery's for a full day on the job. 

The new concrete mixers are built on MAN trucks with a diesel engine. Wierda Hybrid Technologies used to build Hybrid PTO's for generating the power but with the latest model the diesel engine's only job is to drive te vehicle. The electrical powered concrete mixer means less noise and pollution on the job. This makes the new electric truckmixers the ideal equipment for concrete transport in congested area's and city centers.
