Laying new water pipelines in the heart of Barcelona - This was accomplished without direct exhaust emissions and with particularly low noise levels using zero emission solutions from Wacker Neuson.
Consistent use of electric solutions
Homs Rentals, a construction equipment rental yard from Spain, provided Sorigué, the contractor, with zero emission products from Wacker Neuson. "This is one of the first construction projects in Spain to use only zero-emission machines. The machines are being used throughout the process, from breaking to excavation, to backfilling and compaction," explains Marc Homs, Chief Financial Officer at Homs Rentals. A charging box from Wacker Neuson was used on the construction site for testing purposes. At this mobile charging station, the batteries of all electric machines can be easily charged overnight or during work breaks. This makes the construction site completely independent of the power grid and sets new standards for emission-free construction sites of the future. Wacker Neuson provided support throughout the entire process planning in the run-up to the project: from selecting the right machines and equipment, their attachments and batteries, to advising on power requirements and connected load, to making the best possible use of the charging box and handling intermediate charges.
Emission-free work: from breaking to backfilling
First up was the EZ17e electric Zero Tail excavator: The hydraulic hammer was used to break up the paving as well as the underlying concrete layer and then removing the material. With its high-quality lithium-ion technology, the machine meets the high demands for performance, durability, and sturdiness. The proven Wacker Neuson WL20e wheel loader and DW15e wheel dumper were used to transport the material. Once the work on the water pipelines had been completed, the soil was compacted using two AS50e battery-powered rammers and the APS1340e vibratory plate. All Wacker Neuson compaction equipment is powered by the same modular lithium-ion battery. The battery was designed specifically for heavy-duty construction use and delivers sufficient energy for all the work that compaction equipment needs to perform on an average workday.
