Tackling underground emissions with electric mining vehicle

The underground mining sector faces a number of environmental and health hazards, including improving air quality for miners. Ventilation is also one of mining’s most expensive operational costs, as each kW of diesel burned adds multiple kW units to the power needed for ventilation. But if there aren't any diesel emissions, then ventilation no longer becomes an issue. That's why we've worked with Hermann Paus Maschinenfabrik GmbH to develop the fully-electric MinCa 5.1 off-highway vehicle, which is powered by our EDITRON drivetrain system.

Norway’s first electric excavator

Danfoss Editron has delivered electrification technology to support Pon Equipment AS in its development of a fully battery-operated 25-ton electric excavator. Transforming diesel-powered excavators into full electric earth moving machines is key in meeting the Norwegian government’s new policy on zero emission construction sites. Diesel use in construction machinery accounts for about 20 percent of all CO₂ emissions in Oslo. The new policy has been set in order to support Norway’s radical proposal, pledged in 2016, to become climate neutral by 2030.
