The Advantages of Construction Vehicle Electrification

Electrify Your Business:
For a Sustainable and Green Future

Cities are constantly changing to meet the latest standards. This necessitates construction sites, which are an almost daily part of urban life. Off-highway vehicles such as excavators are indispensable to complete rebuilding work as quickly as possible. They transport heavy loads every day and thus work harder than ordinary vehicles. However, they consume a large amount of fuel and increase CO2 emissions. With this in mind, the electrification of off-highway vehicles is the best approach to protecting the climate and saving costs while still pushing forward with the modernization of cities. We seek to make this possible in cooperation with you.

The Challenges for Construction Vehicles

CO2 and fine dust emissions in cities will be limited by law 

High costs for the development of batteries & high total cost of ownership 

Vibration-resistant batteries and an uninterrupted power supply even on challenging terrain must be ensured

Low volumes > many prototypes – no serial production of construction machines yet

Long use + high energy consumption for large work machines => high performance needed

Limited packaging space and therefore very different installation spaces 

Our Solution for Your Business

We offer you everything you need for the electrification of off-highway vehicles out of one hand: battery, thermal management, and an expert at your side. With our scalable standardized battery solution we offer you one battery system for a wide range of vehicles and different applications - so you have only one technical solution. Furthermore, it can be installed flexibly depending on the available installation space of the construction machine, whether vertically or horizontally.

Our battery offers many advantages especially for construction machines: the robust & compact housing is vibration resistant and therefore ideally suited for the bumpy ground of construction sites. With our matching thermal management we enable you to get the maximum out of your machines and further increase the working hours. 

Standard Battery System for Construction Vehicles

With our standard battery system you get the best of both worlds: You benefit from the price and quality of a mass product as well as from the accurate fit of a customized solution. Thanks to its modular, scalable and geometric design and its high stability, our standard battery system is suitable for a wide range of vehicles of all kinds.

Your Advantages with Us as Your Partner at a Glance:

Low Total Cost of Ownership

The Webasto battery system provides peace of mind knowing the research and development have already been made to ensure a safe and reliable product. Combined with the price advantages of mass production and global leadership to provide state-of-the-art vehicle components, we built a turn-key system including modular battery packs, power distribution unit (VIB) for scalability, thermal management for the batteries (eBTM) and comfort management for passenger space (heating & cooling).

Robust and Compact Housing & Modular Solution

Construction machines are designed for long-term use - and so is our battery. That is why it comes in a robust housing, which is not only shockproof but also waterproof and thoroughly tested - you do not need to design for additional protection. Additional our battery offers you a compact design as well as flexible installation options. Vertical or horizontal installation is possible depending on the available space in the vehicle. 

Furthermore our battery system is a modular & scalable solution and can be used across different vehicle platforms and applications (platform approach). 

Consistent Thermal Management for Optimal Performance

With our Thermal Management solutions, either plug-n-play or integrated, we not only increase the range up to 25 % of the vehicle but also the battery life cycle ensuring you optimal battery performance.

Highest Quality & Safety

We guarantee the best performance through the highest safety and quality standards. Our systems are extensively tested in-house, including corrosion and leak tests, temperature shock tests, and vibration tests - ideal for the construction site. Our battery provides the highest safety even on bumpy ground and highest load, so it is the perfect system for construction machinery. 

Fast & Easy Access

Developing a battery will take too long? With our standard battery, you not only avoid the development time and costs, you are also assured of certification throughout Europe on top. You can get started with the electrification of your vehicles right away.
