Autonomous electric load carriers for aggregate extraction and production totally eliminating direct carbon emissions. Ambition is industry-wide adoption by 2025.
Within the aggregates sector, load carriers are traditionally diesel powered which contribute carbon emissions which are linked to climate change and health effects from wider air pollution. To address this, Volvo has developed a fully electric and autonomous load carrier for the quarrying sector. Users of these machines will benefit by reducing direct carbon emissions and other air pollutants by 100%. Additional benefits will include reduced operating costs and greater productivity.
Quarrying sector organisations will benefit from eliminating direct carbon and other air pollutants from their hauling operations on quarry sites. Additional benefits will be greater productivity and reduced operating costs.
These electric autonomous load carriers are applicable to organisations within the quarrying sector.
