Yanmar on electrification
By Roberta Prandi26 July 2022
At bauma 2022 show, Yanmar will exhibit in Hall A4.425.
Besides an emphasis on its free five-years warranty for engines sold in Europe for machines operating on the European territory, Yanmar will introduce at bauma its new electrification strategy, based on presenting its capabilities as system integrator. The company will offer system engineering, design and manufacturing of e-powertrains, while also providing control development, system evaluation, procurement, manufacturing and quality assurance.
This important development for the over-110-years-old engine manufacturer will be exemplified by an electrified demonstration excavator on the booth. It will be powered by an electric drive and 48-volt batteries with fast charging capability. Yanmar recently acquired ELEO, a developer and manufacturer of high-performance modular battery systems. ELEO is building a new battery production plant, increasing its annual battery production capacity tenfold to 500 MWh – equivalent of approximately 10,000 battery packs.
Yanmar said it is active also in several other new-energy projects in various business lines, including hydrogen-powered cogeneration, research into hydrogen fuel marine engines, bio-gas cogeneration, dual-fuel power solutions with natural gas, fuel cell marine technology, smart agriculture, and resource recycling technologies.
