A renovation of the marketplace in the midst of the inner city that should take place as quietly and emission-free as possible? Unimaginable before this, possible today. The electric construction machines and equipment of the zero emission series prove in the practical test that, due to their output, easy handling and low-noise operation, they are a practical alternative in the daily work of a construction site. A visit to an urban-friendly construction site with absolutely no exhaust emissions.
No cables, flexible and always ready for action at any time on the construction site: the high-quality, lithium-ion, rechargeable battery by Wacker Neuson makes this possible. Now, with only one construction machine battery, several machines can be operated. And soon, it will be more.
Are battery-powered tools only for special applications? Far from it! On a large construction site in Vienna, the battery-powered compaction equipment and compact electric machines are proving that they too are perfectly suited for daily practical use. Read on and see for yourself.
It is called the “hellhole of creation” – the Danakil Desert in Ethiopia. This desert gave its name to the Danakil House, which will open its doors to visitors at the German National Garden Show (BUGA) 2021. But how can the desert and jungle house be designed without damaging the exotic plants through exhaust emissions? Quite simply: with emission-free solutions from Wacker Neuson. A visit to the – in two senses – green construction site in Erfurt, Germany.
Breaking up concrete floors? No problem. And that in an underground vault? Challenging – but solvable. During the reconstruction of a part of the Rosenberg fortress in Kronach, Upper Franconia, only machines with compact dimensions that could be used in confined spaces and work without exhaust emissions were considered for this task. An ideal construction site for Wacker Neuson’s zero emission solutions.
To lay new cables and, in doing so, interfere in the opening hours of shops in the pedestrian zone as little as possible – that was the city of Copenhagen’s task. For this reason, construction work was carried out predominantly at night or early in the morning. But how could this work without the noise level disturbing residents? The solution: only electrically operated and extremely quiet construction machines were used. A visit to a completely emission-free construction site.
Players in the construction industry must increasingly deal with new rules and regulations and stricter specifications for exhaust fumes and noise emissions when it comes to tenders. In addition, subsidies and advantages applicable to public tenders for the application of emission-free construction machines should be driving forces for fewer CO2 emissions in city centers.
