This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon H2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101009840
Concept and objectives:
For the construction sector, and more globally for Non-Road Mobile Machineries, electrification is a major stake, as most of construction equipment is working with diesel engines and presents a lot of drawbacks that will not be acceptable anymore in the future: Air pollution, Emission of CO2, Noise
Meantime, users of these machineries, e.g. construction companies, are facing very demanding needs in term of autonomy, productivity, operation cost and investment costs. The trade-off between all these parameters causes a lot of construction machineries to be still operated with diesel engines.
Non-road equipment original equipment manufacturers (OEM) begin to propose electrical solutions, but they are pricey, and the developments needed to engineer such solutions take a very long time, and demand advanced knowledge regarding battery management.
That is why WATTALPS propose its innovative turnkey solution to OEMs: A versatile, modular lithium-ion battery system using patented state-of-the-art technologies to provide OEMs with a tailored solution capable of maintaining power to equipment for an entire day at a high-power rate.
WATTALPS masters the battery technology (cooling, power electronics…) and can deliver high power rate or high energy density, depending on the customers’ needs.
Using WATTALPS solution, Non-Road mobile machineries (NRMM) OEMs will be able to provide their customers electric solutions with a CAPEX divided by 20, and to accelerate their time to market by a 4 factor when compared with an in-house solution.
This will be a real game changer for them, and for the demanded electrification of NRMM.
