Latest on Hyster® Electric Container Truck to be revealed at TOC Europe
31 May 2018
During the event in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Jan-Willem van den Brand and Willem Nieuwland from Hyster Europe will share the latest information on the much anticipated project during a TECH TOC seminar at 12.00 on Thursday 14th June.
In 2017, Hyster Europe revealed that a zero-emissions, 48-tonne Hyster® laden container handling truck was being developed. The first truck, due to be powered by electric motors receiving energy from a lithium-ion battery, is currently in the test phase. The innovative, high-voltage truck is expected to help operations achieve full shift performance comparable to a diesel-powered truck in the future.
During the presentation, representatives from Hyster Europe will discuss the different power and charging options that the electric Big Truck is expected to offer, including lithium-ion batteries of varying sizes, and possible future options where batteries will be combined with fuel cell technology.
