Dutch transport and logistics company Combex Bouwlogistiek has taken delivery of the first electric Hyva Kennis 16R e-Power roll loader crane.
Introduced at bauma last year and developed in partnership with Combex, the 16 tonne/metre 16R e-Power offers a maximum lifting capacity of 4,700kg and maximum radius 8.4 metres. Power comes from a battery pack which is coupled to Hyva’s On Road Recharging System (ORRS) which tops up the batteries while the truck travels between drop offs. A plug-in charging solution is also available.
Benefits include improved energy efficiency as well as lower noise and environmental impact with the crane also qualifying for the MIA/VAMIL environmental tax benefits in the Netherlands. Combex will operate the crane in the greater Amsterdam region and in particular the area around Schipol airport where strict environmental regulations are currently in place.
Combex technical director Allard Tadema said: “Following extensive research and positive feedback from many drivers, we are very pleased with this new purchase. We are always looking to invest in the future, and we are confident that this Hyva Kennis e-Power solution will be a significant step in lowering our environmental impact. And, the fact that the investment qualifies for MIA/VAMIL is a bonus.”
Menno Jurjens, Hyva Sales Manager, added “We are proud of our Hyva Kennis e-Power solution which recognises customer demand for electrically operated vehicles and is responding to increasingly strict environmental regulation on diesel exhaust emissions and noise pollution. We thank Combex for their trust and a very pleasant cooperation.”
