Dynapac launches electric compactor

By Belinda Smart08 July 2021

Equipment manufacturer Dynapac is launching a new electric-powered compactor, currently being piloted and set for release to the market next year, as part of a companywide zero-emissions initiative. 

Dynapac President Paul Hense said when the company developed its first electric-powered prototype 10 years ago, “there was no audience and no market for it. And there were too many questions about the efficiency and complexity of battery power. But today, we are pushing on an open door.

“Many of our customers around the world have already started to utilise electric-powered mini excavators, skid steer loaders and telescopic handlers. Our new electric powered rollers will complement those machines perfectly.

“Our new generation of electric compaction machines are designed to be emissions-free at the point of use. Of course, we cannot control how the electricity required to charge them is actually generated. But we are seeing several positive moves towards the embracing of renewable energy sources.”

The electric compactor is part of a new initiative, Z.ERA, to eliminate emissions and embrace new technology.

Hense said Z.ERA “will define every aspect of our business, from the development of advanced zero emission machines, through to embracing technology to reduce the carbon footprint of our customers and our dealers. It is our manifesto for a cleaner future.

“Governments around the world are imposing increasingly stringent legislation and pushing for cleaner, more sustainable solutions to help reduce carbon emissions. At the same time, there is also a push from our customers needing support meeting these legislative targets.

“The purpose of the Z.ERA program is to satisfy the push from government and customers and the pull from technology providers and to help both our customers and ourselves here at Dynapac to contribute to that sustainable future.”
