High power in construction, delivered immediately
One of the major challenges in construction is reducing nitrogen and CO2 emissions when using heavy equipment. We are happy to take on that challenge. For example, we recently achieved a 50% reduction in emissions when pulling sheet piling and hydraulic drilling.
Even though an exemption from the nitrogen law for the construction and demolition phase is on the way, sustainability in the construction sector is and will remain in full swing. And that is challenging. Large industrial construction and infrastructure projects often require large capacities and no grid connection is available. That is why diesel generators are used for the electricity. In the past quarter Greener achieved fuel and CO2 savings of around 50 to 100% with ease.
Sheet piling with batteries
For example, Greener supplied Gebr. De Koning a battery to pull sheet piling. In the project, Gebr. De Koning is using an electric vibratory hammer for pulling sheet piles, which have been in the ground for more than 20 years. Normally a large generator provides the electrical energy to drive the vibratory hammer, which in full operation uses well over 200 kW of electrical power. We replaced the generator with our battery. The battery could be used all day long, which can be fully charged at night on a 32 A connection. This project shows once again how strong Greener batteries are.
These industrial construction projects fit us well, because our batteries can deliver high power instantly.
High power for Van Vulpen
Another nice case in which the power of our batteries in construction became clear again was in cooperation with Van Vulpen and Genpower. The washing installation of their electric HDD normally runs on a 500 or 600 kVA generator. In the hybrid setup with our battery, a smaller generator of 300 kVA could be used. The battery acted as a buffer and effortlessly absorbed peak consumption.
Electrification of machinery
In the coming year, we will only see this need for battery power in construction increasing. In the trend towards the electrification of equipment, we see that there is a need for more power on the construction site, so that equipment can be loaded quickly during the lunch break. Our batteries are also very suitable for this.
