Daimler Launches Inaugural NACV Show With Innovative Vehicle Line-Up Digging deep beneath one of Germany’s most prominent monuments is Volvo CE-equipped construction company, Kögel Bau, employing a fleet of machines to breathe life back into the landmark. Atop the Wittekindsberg mountain in Germany, at a height of about 210 meters (690 ft) stands the Emperor William I Monument, celebrating the life of Kaiser Wilhelm, built between 1892 and 1896. The 121 year old monument is one of the region’s most prominent landmarks and a popular tourist destination, offering expansive views of the surrounding hills, as well as the Porta Westphalia and southern part of the German Plain. Following the collapse of a portion of the memorial plaza, plans were set in motion to construct a new panorama café and a

wajax_wheelloader_2017.indd 1

visitor’s centre on a newly renovated ring terrace. Taking on the project is Kögel Bau, a construction company tasked with civil engineering and construction work. Projected to be completed next year, the project is well underway, but not before a considerable amount of modification to the vicinity was required. Digging Deep Before the construction of the café and visitor centre could begin, Kögel Bau had to design the foundation and ground cables. This included drilling 270 reinforced concrete piles – with a diameter of 200 mm – 32 meters (105 ft) into the mountain. “Creating this substructure was the most difficult aspect of the project,” Kögel recalls. As co-manager of the family-owned company, Kögel knows a thing or two about large-

scale construction projects – and selecting the proper equipment. For over 15 years, the company has relied on Volvo CE machines across a variety of projects. “They are reliable and offer good value for money – from the purchase price and service to maintenance costs and the resale value,” he adds. In 2016, Kögel Bau took delivery of a fleet of seven Volvo machines and began working on the monumental work that summer. The equipment line-up includes five L30G compact wheel loaders, an ECR145E short radius excavator and an EW210D wheeled excavator. Peak Performance The L30G compact wheel loaders are specified with dual hydraulics that enables simultaneous lifting and steering, helping increase manoeu-

vrability in tight areas of the jobsite. To aid flexibility, the excavators are equipped with tiltrotators. Meanwhile, the EW210D features a wide track, heavy counterweight and quick coupler for a simple attachment replacement. The decision has proven a success. “In just four months, the men have loosened and transported 30,000 cubic meters (40,000 yd2) of earth and rock using GPS-controlled excavators,” explains Peter Kögel. “We’ve also

Page 3

cleared and secured the remains of the old ring terrace that collapsed around 70 years ago.” Additionally, the machines have been used to haul 1,200 square meters (1,435 yd2) of asphalt and construct a 340 meter long (1,115 ft) supply road from the monument to a nearby parking lot. Solid From The Start Looking back on the 15 years of experience with Volvo machines, Kögel Bau is satisfied with the overall result: “We rarely experience downtime, but

when we do, we look to the Swecon branch in Bielefeld for support,” he says. “Over the years, we’ve developed a very good relationship with the Volvo dealer.” The combination is a recipe for a successful completion of the monument. “We consider ourselves to be an innovative company and expect the same from the technology we use,” says Kögel. “That’s why we fit perfectly with Volvo CE products. b Source: Western Star

Finding Arenas For Innovation Volvo Group Connected Solutions is the newly established unit that will lead the development of the Volvo Group’s connected services and solutions. New ways of working will unleash innovation power and shorten time to market. The Volvo Group currently has a valuable asset in some 600,000 connected trucks, buses and construction machines. The number is increasing every day and is expected to reach over 1 million by 2020. “To stay competitive, we need to make the best use of, and continue to develop, our own capabilities as well as make effective use of partners,” says Anna Westerberg, Senior Vice President Connected Solutions. “The data generated by the connectivity of our vehicles and machines provide valuable insights on how our products are being used. We are already using this data for uptime-related services and fleet manage-

cial vehicles.” “Software competence is not only relevant for our development teams, we also need to add experience in creating new business based on software technology so that we take advantage of the new opportunities that comes with digitalisation and working close with our customers. The positioning of the Volvo Group as an innovative company, the tasks and the way of working are all very important areas to attract top talents for software development.” Volvo Group Connected Solutions • New unit since April 2017. • Built upon existing Volvo Group Venture Capital and Volvo Group Telematics, currently some 700 employees and consultants. • Focus on service innovation, development, delivery and operation to better support customers. • Will strengthen competitive position for the Volvo Group. • Governed by internal board consisting of key stakeholders. b

Through softwarebased services and solutions, we can deliver these values in new ways, more adapted to customers’ business needs in different segments and markets. Helping our customers to optimise their productivity and efficiency will become even more important in the future, as the truck or machine is one part in a much bigger logistics system.” “Leveraging the data and combining it with other external data sources is a powerful way for us to take service innovation and development to the next level.

Linden Comansa’s New CUBE Cab The tower crane manufacturer is presenting a new, far more spacious model of cab, in which operators will be able to enjoy optimum visibility of the working area Combining a great look with productivity and comfort in a single product is not normally a simple task, especially when it comes to construction machinery. However, the new CUBE cab in Linden Comansa’s tower cranes combines these three qualities, while bearing in mind that the cab is a work space and, as such, productivity should always be the number one requirement. Proper visibility of the site and the working area is assured from the front of the crane’s CUBE cab, all of which is made of glass, not only at the front but also on the sides and at the floor, and even at the roof when installed in luffing jib cranes. Thanks to the optimum visibility of the load and working area, the crane operator has greater control over the operations and the surrounding area, which also means greater safety. In terms of the external appearance, the aim is a modern and innovative design that gives Linden Comansa’s cranes a distinctive look. Inside, all of the elements have been designed to convey warmth and comfort to the user, through their materials and good quality finishes. The cube-shaped design of the cab with flat

glass panes not only looks good, it also aims to make maximum use of the space, which is not possible with curved front panels or tilted windows. Thanks to this cube design, all of the elements of the cabin are distributed in a more intelligent way and there is extra space for operator ergonomics, and there is even room to comfortably fit a second person in the largest cab. Linden Comansa’s cranes are operated across the world, so the design of the CUBE cab has taken into account extreme thermal requirements, both hot and cold. Facilitating maintenance was also one of the goals during the design of this work space. As a result, the window panes are easy to replace when necessary and they can be bought anywhere in the world as they do not require a mould, unlike curved window panes. The new cab will be available in two sizes, L and XL, and it comes as standard with most Linden Comansa cranes. The smaller range, i.e. the 11LC132 and 11LC90 models and the models from the LC500 range, will be keeping the current, smaller cab for now. The new L and XL cabs are slightly bigger than the current ones, so they cannot be installed on tower cranes that have already been delivered. Linden Comansa’s new CUBE cab offers users a

number of ergonomic benefits: • Complete visibility of the working area, thanks to the full glass front, with tinted glass to avoid excess light • Optimal access to the digital indicators and the multifunction touch screen • Improved positioning of the seat, with ample access to it • Improved posture for the crane operator • It has also make it possible to significantly increase the amount of equipment: A user-friendly multifunction touch screen, which emits warning lights / sounds about the state of the machine, that also allows to: • Turn on, programme and control the intensity of the interior lighting • Turn on the exterior lighting, to light up the platform • Control and programme the lighting of the jib and the tower (offered on an optional basis) • Control the temperature and programme the heating • Control the windscreen wipers, with adjustable speeds • View video images (the camera is offered as an optional feature) Perform pre-installation for air conditioning on the roof and “split” systems and radio system: • With hands-free (Bluetooth) option, to be able to talk on a mobile

The CUBE cab ensures proper visibility of the site and the working area.

phone and listen through the cab’s speakers • USB to listen to music from a personal player or charge the battery of a mobile phone or other device • Storage space • With shelves for objects, mobile telephones, etc. • A tab on which to hang a walkie-talkie • Space for a small electrical appliance, such as an electric coffee machine or a microwave (the latter only in the XL cab) • A larger electric cabinet,

for ease of access and to facilitate maintenance work • Hangers • A wardrobe for clothing or harnesses, with special shelves for footwear (only in XL) • Sun blinds for the front and side windows, and for the roof window too in luffing jib cranes • Removable footrest grid, for ease of cleaning of both it and the floor window Many of the improvements introduced in the

CUBE cab have come from suggestions made by clients and distributors over the years. The joint efforts of the engineering team, suppliers and the BigD design studio (Pamplona, Spain) have made it possible to incorporate them into the final design, after two years of work. The XL CUBE cab will start being shipped in October 2017, while the L size will be shipped from November. b Source: Linden Comansa

International’s New Assurance Program With the launch of the International A26 engine earlier this year, International Truck introduced a powerful new 12.4-liter engine designed to provide industry-leading uptime, durability and reliability. Now, International is demonstrating its confidence in that uptime assurance by backing it up with the International A26 Customer Uptime Assurance Program. “The new A26 big bore engine was designed with uptime in its DNA, and the best customer support in the business,” said Michael Cancelliere, president, Truck and Parts. “We are so confident in the unparalleled uptime offered by the A26 that we are now offering a program that provides customers financial reimbursement if our uptime commitment is not met.” The International A26 Customer Uptime Assurance Program is simple. If a customer experiences a warrantable failure on an A26 engine within its two-year standard warranty period, and experiences downtime greater than 48 hours from the time of diagnosis, International Truck will provide the customer with a $250 International Advantage Card, good for future parts and service purchases at an International dealership, subject to standard conditions. Customers may be eligible for a maximum of 8 cards per vehicle over the two-year period, a value of as much as $2,000 per vehicle. The program applies to all stock and sold vehicles in the International LT Series and the International RH Series that are powered by an International A26 engine and enrolled in the company’s OnCommand® Connection Advanced Remote Diagnostics system or its OnCommand Connection Telematics. Customers should contact their local International Truck dealer for program details. In pursuit of improved uptime, International Truck designed the A26 engine for increased service intervals that keep customers on the road longer, including oil, aftertreatment,

A26 engine. They consist of technical experts who are certified to understand even the minutest A26 engine detail. Driven by a commitment to deliver customer uptime in the Class 8 market, the A26 engine was developed through an initiative called Project Alpha, which brought together a new team of the industry’s foremost powertrain engineers. Built from the proven MAN D26 engine crankcase, the A26 engine produces up to 475 horsepower and 1,750 lb.-ft. of torque from a design that is 600-700 lbs. lighter than a traditional 15L big bore engine. Its components have been carefully engineered to deliver uncompromising uptime as well as classleading fuel efficiency, reduced weight and quiet operation. Customer shipments of the A26 engine in the International LT Series and RH Series vehicles are already being fulfilled. To place an order and for more information, visit an International Truck dealer or go to: www.InternationalTrucks.com. b

and best-in-class coolant service interval in the International A26 engine at eight years, 15,000 hours and 1.2 million miles. “By design, the engine coolant and the A26 will perform for years to come for customers who order it in the LT Series or RH Series vehicles,” said Darren Gosbee, vice president, Powertrain. “Our engineers continuously test and validate the A26 engine, and the team approved the extended coolant service interval in an effort to provide customers with additional efficiencies that help them reduce their total cost of ownership.” With the industry’s largest dealer network, International Truck customers can purchase a truck with the A26 engine and find the service support they need when they need it.

Customers with vehicles needing a quick repair are rapidly diagnosed, serviced and returned to work, increasing efficiency at the dealership and improving a customer’s ROI. Results show that Mack Certified Uptime Centres helped increase shop efficiency by 24 percent and reduce check-in time by more than 40 minutes.

Mack Trucks announced today that it certified its 100th dealer location as a Mack Certified Uptime Centre – an accreditation signifying the dealer has met stringent requirements to better improve service and help keep customers’ trucks up and running. Standardized workflows and processes at Mack Certified Uptime Centres, combined with redesigned service bays, enable quicker repairs and more streamlined service for customers. Mack began distinguishing dealerships that achieved the guidelines to be a Mack Certified Uptime Centre in January 2016. “Attaining 100 Mack Certified Uptime Centres in a relatively short amount of time exemplifies how Mack dealerships are committed to going above and beyond to best meet the needs of customers,” said Jonathan Randall, senior vice president of sales for Mack Trucks North America. “We have many more

ner Geotab, a leading global provider of end-toend telematics technology, Mack now offers connectivity for older Mack vehicles that are not equipped with the GuardDog Connect telematics hardware. After installing a small Geotab telematics device, the Mack Uptime Centre will be able to monitor the same critical vehicle codes as GuardDog Connect hardware. If an issue is detected, Mack OneCall agents will evaluate and provide the customer’s designated contact with decision-critical information through Mack ASIST, an online communications and service management portal. Repair scheduling, as well as parts and service bay availability, are also confirmed, all while the truck is still on the job. “Mack consistently seeks opportunities to extend its uptime solutions, and we’re pleased that dealerships share the same business philosophy of maximizing efficiency,” said David Pardue, Mack Trucks vice president of connected vehicles and uptime services. b

Terex Haulers Build Solid Reputation Longstanding Terex Trucks customer, MB Wilkes is using two 28-tonne capacity articulated haulers to move material around its sand and gravel quarry in Corfe Mullen, Dorset. Originally purchased in the 1950s for timber production, the story of MB Wilkes’ Henbury Quarry in Dorset is one of an accidental find. “Our grandfather Harold Wilkes bought this land in the early fifties to take lumber off of it and one day, one falling tree hit another tree exposing its roots,” says Paul Wilkes, director at MB Wilkes. “At the time of the incident, he was with his friend Harry J Palmers, a local builder, who said ‘That looks good’, and after sieving out a small quantity of sand

he made a little wall with it and everything basically went from there.” Following further exploration of the area, quarrying on the site began in 1958 and MB Wilkes was officially established in 1964. It wasn’t long before Harold’s son Michael joined the company to help continue to build on its solid foundations and, in turn, Michael then passed ownership to his two sons David and Paul in the early 90s. With more than half a century in the industry, the family-run business is now a leading supplier of aggregates and building materials throughout Dorset, and the surrounding counties from its Corfe Mullen head office. Known for its highquality products offered at competitive prices, MB

Wilkes manufactures and distributes a wide range of topsoil, sand, gravel, and decorative stone. As a progressive business built on expert knowledge, the company also operates a facility for recycling waste aggregates such as brick rubble, concrete, and soil. To this effect, MB Wilkes owns an extensive fleet of machinery to service the needs of the site and has equipment such as articulated haulers, tippers, grab trucks, loading shovels, dozers, and excavators. Solid partnership As a longstanding Terex Trucks’ customer, MB Wilkes bought its first articulated dump truck in 1999 after the TA30 impressed over competitor brands. The compa-

ny then looked to Terex Trucks again in 2008 when it made the decision to add a machine to its fleet to increase productivity and opted for another TA30, which was supplied by TDL Equipment. Paul says: “When we bought the first articulated truck we were looking at other brands, but Terex Trucks’ products were the best – the fuel efficiency was good, it was reliable and simple to drive.” “It had cross diff-locks as well which a lot of others didn’t have at the time,” adds David Wilkes, director at MB Wilkes. Concrete groundwork Well suited to the application, Terex Trucks’ 28-tonne capacity haulers have proved to be a perfect match for the Henbury Quarry. “Customer satisfaction is at the top of our list and we’re proud of the material we produce at Henbury Quarry,” explains David. Renowned for its premium products, MB Wilkes’ highest quality building sand is Corfe 1 and it’s favoured by customers due to its versatility

as it’s suitable for all applications. The extraction process for Corfe 1 requires machinery at Henbury Quarry to descend close to 80 feet below the surface. The geology of the quarry is made up of various layers of material with grey gravel at the very top. The gravel fades into ginger hogging, which then transitions to sand, sandstone and then a soft ginger sand. Finally, there’s a vast amount of overburden and it is beneath this that bright yellow sand, known as Corfe 1, is found deep in the earth. David explains: “We are using dozers, excavators, and Terex Trucks’ articulated haulers to remove the overburden and dig deeper to be able to get access to Corfe 1 sand, which we then sell on to the brick manufacturers.” Smooth performance Expertly designed to take on a variety of terrains and move the harshest materials, sand has shown itself to be the trucks’ biggest challenge at the Henbury Quarry, particularly when wet.

chines built in Motherwell, Scotland, have stood the test of time working nine hours a day, in all weather conditions. David explains: “In the past, we always had one dump truck on standby, but now we are working to capacity and so we use both most of the time. Following the installation of a new wash plant last year, the dump trucks are now moving material to and from the quarry as part of the production process.” The trucks, which are also used to dump material in the customer loading areas, have also found favour with MB Wilkes’ operators. Designed with the driver in mind, the articulated haulers feature front suspension and a spacious ergonomic cabin offering maximum operator comfort. David adds: “We’ve found that the tyres wear very well and our operators frequently comment on how smooth the drive is in the dump truck – one even said it was better than his road car!” b

Bright Future For Mining In Canada Industry highlights top priorities at Energy and Mines Ministers’ Conference As Canada’s Energy and Mines Ministers convene for their 74th annual conference, a national coalition of mining associations is recommending several government actions to help unlock billions of economic activity across the country, address climate change, bolster reconciliation efforts with Indigenous peoples, and secure Canada as the world’s top supplier of sustainably-sourced minerals and metals in an increasingly lower carbon global economy. A brief submitted by the Canadian Mineral Industry Federation (CMIF) details six policy areas where provincial collaboration and action by governments can enhance Canada’s ability to attract new mineral investment and expand the mineral and mining industry’s vast socio-economic contributions to Canadians: 1. Improve the regulatory process: Given the importance of the regulatory regime to the mining industry’s competitiveness and Canada’s ability to compete against other countries for new mineral investment, it is critical that current reviews of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, the Fisheries Act, and the Navigation Protection Act result in an effective, timely and coordinated regulatory process, from pre-environmental assessment (EA) to post-EA permitting, with meaningful consultation. 2. Support Indigenous participation in the mining sector: The mining industry is the largest private sector employer of Indigenous peoples in Canada on a proportional basis, is a leading supporter of Indigenous businesses, and makes major investments in skills training and community initiatives. Governments can further enhance the participation of Indigenous peoples in the industry through investments in health, education and skills training, and implementing government resource revenue sharing mechanisms. Building on strengths, government should leverage

leading supplier of sustainably-sourced minerals and metals, and the technologies the world needs to best extract them, government and industry collaboration is needed. This includes government support for the proposed CLEER (Clean, Low-energy, Effective, Engaged and Remediated) Clean Resources Innovation Supercluster, led by the Canada Mining Innovation Council and the Centre for Excellence in Mining Innovation. In recent years, the CMIF made recommendations to help make the Energy and Mines Ministers’ Conference more productive. The CMIF thanks the event organizers for acting on these recommendations, which has resulted in a new format that allows for greater governmentindustry collaboration on shared and strategic priorities. QUOTES: “We share the same vision as governments across this country that Canada can be a leading supplier of the minerals and metals the world needs, both today and in a lower carbon future, which will only serve to increase the demand for our products. Canada’s mining industry, which operates some of the lowestemitting, highest-tech, and socially-responsible mining operations globally, is looking forward to working with governments, communities and Indigenous peoples to get the foundational pieces in place to foster future growth and achieve our collective vision,” stated Pierre Gratton, President and CEO, the Mining Association of Canada. “Industry and government have an opportunity to work together to enhance exploration financing, infrastructure development and the regulatory certainty needed for a successful mineral exploration and mining industry in Canada, a sector that is increasingly recognized for its innovation and sustainability. Mineral exploration and mining is a proven economic driver for Canada, providing critical job opportunities for remote and Indigenous communities, and must remain a source of employment for generations to come,” says PDAC President Glenn Mullan. b

industry as a platform to advance meaningful Indigenous economic reconciliation. 3. Adopt effective climate change policies: An effective climate change policy leads to meaningful emissions reductions while enabling the Canadian economy to grow. It needs to be carefully designed to ensure the competitiveness of emissions-intensive and tradeexposed (EITE) sectors, like mining. Failing to protect EITE sectors will lead to mineral production moving to competitor countries with less stringent climate change policies. Critical for the mining sector is that policies must also be compatible to minimize compliance burden, and sensitive to changing economic and geographical realities such as those in Canada’s remote and northern regions where few options exist to fuel switch from diesel. 4. Carefully consider land use and withdrawals: Withdrawal of highlyprospective areas is reducing the attractiveness of Canada as an exploration destination. Canadian governments should ensure that mineral potential is factored into all land withdrawal decision-making processes, and that land use planning and withdrawal decisions are balanced and made through systematic and structured processes. 5. Address the costs of operating in remote and northern Canada: The future of Canada’s mineral industry lies increasingly in remote and northern regions, and the current infrastructure deficit acts as a major barrier to opportunities for greater wealth discovery and production. The CMIF supports the creation of the Canada Infrastructure Bank and encourages the federal government to ensure that it has a pathway for remote and northern Canada, including infrastructure projects that benefit both industry and local and Indigenous communities. 6. Support industry’s innovation investments: To help Canada become the Source: Mining.ca

Kenworth C500 Hauls Superloads Edwards Moving and Rigging Can More Easily Position Equipment Between Loads with C500s.

W

hen loads exceeding a quarter of a million pounds need to be moved, few haulers in the United States possess the kind of equipment operated by Edwards Moving and Rigging. The Shelbyville, Kentucky-based heavy hauling and rigging company owns several unique trailers to haul 375,000-pound turbines for combined-cycle power plants that use gas and steam turbines to generate more power than a standard plant with a single gas turbine. Or a 194,000-pound demethanizer tower used to extract natural gas from raw hydrocarbon gas at refineries. Instead of using huge 12-foot-wide prime movers—which are not typically equipped to get up to highway speeds and can only be operated on roads

and highways under the restrictions of state and local conditional use—Edwards Moving and Rigging relies on several Kenworth C500 trucks to haul those payloads. “The Kenworth C500 offers us the power and transmission combination that can pull our trailers fully loaded with gross combination weights up to 900,000 pounds or more, and can haul empty trailers up to highway speeds in between loads,” said Bill Watts, vice president of operations for Edwards Moving and Rigging. Recently, three of the company’s C500s were used to haul a 187-ton turbine 230 miles from the manufacturer in New York over the Adirondack and Pocono Mountains to a combinedcycle plant in Pennsylva-

nia. A fourth C500 served as a backup unit to help move the 350-foot-long truck and trailer duo—with a gross combination weight of 900,000 pounds—on long stretches of road with steep grades through the Adirondacks and Poconos. Edwards hauled two others like it earlier this year and in 2016. Unlike larger and wider prime movers, the 8-1/2–foot wide Kenworth C500 can operate on the road without requiring a conditional use permit. “Because the C500 is an over-the-road compliant prime mover, we can position our equipment much faster. When the move is done, we can stack the trailers and use our C500s to transport them to the next jobs without having to arrange transportation for both

the trucks and trailers,” he said. Edwards operates the third largest fleet of Goldhofer THP hydraulic platform trailers in the United States. With more than 200 lines of hydraulic trailers available, the company can arrange them in various configurations to achieve a variety of payload capacities. Edwards is one of only two firms in North America with a 110-ton Goldhofer Faktor 5 trailer, which has a payload capacity five times its tare weight. The Faktor 5 features a beam suspended over two sets of 20-axle hydraulic lift trailers that can be extended to a span of more than 150 feet, or to the length of nearly a football field. It can also be raised or lowered up to 5-1/2 feet. Edwards also operates Aspen A250 and A500 dual lane trailers, which allow movement of loads across a non-suspension bridge on a divided highway or interstate using both travel lanes and bridge decks. Edwards hauls several hundred loads varying in size and scope each year using a fleet of about 30 trucks. Before the company bought its first two C500s, Edwards used specialized trucks to haul the heavier loads, Watts said. While the specialized trucks had

the necessary power, because of their width, they had to be hauled to the move, along with the trailers, and then picked up once the move was completed. In 2011, Edwards began buying Kenworth C500s after meeting with Duane McDaniel, branch manager of local Kenworth dealer Worldwide Equipment in Middlesboro, Kentucky, and engineers from Kenworth. Since 2014, Edwards Rigging and Moving has bought four more of the C500s. “We have found Kenworth engineers and the Worldwide Equipment staff, led by Duane, to be quite knowledgeable about the heavy haul industry,” Watts said. “They ask all the right questions to get to know the specific needs of our operations and offer expert advice in helping us choose the right specs to meet those needs.” Edwards newest C500s are equipped with 15-liter, 550-hp engines coupled with 7-speed Allison 4700RDS automatic transmissions, two-speed tandem rear axles, and tandem planetary hubs. “The C500’s automatic transmissions allow our drivers to synchronize shifting much more easily than if they were driving trucks with manual trans-

October 2017

missions,” said over-theroad equipment manager Kyle McAfee. “That’s particularly important when we use several C500s to pull and push the load. Our drivers have greater control over the load. Since it’s not lurching forward, we can eliminate potential damage to our trailers. “Our drivers also value the quiet C500 cab; positioning of gauges, switches in the instrument panel as well as the location of the pusher, tag axle and planetary hub controls; and the cab’s overall comfort,” he added. “The support our company and drivers receive from Worldwide Equipment and the Kenworth dealer network is phenomenal. “When it can take up to two years to plan, coordinate and obtain all of the necessary permits for a move like the gas turbine transport, it’s important that we stay on schedule. In many instances, we have to meet certain timetables outlined in our permits. So, we need to rely on our equipment and equipment dealers. Kenworth and its dealer network certainly deliver with the C500 and continued dealer support after the sale,” Watts said. b Source: Kenworth

The Legacy That Shaped Volvo’s World-Class Excavators

Volvo has leveraged 180 years of technical knowhow and over 75 years of excavator experience to develop some of the world’s finest excavators – a story that continues to unfold as new challenges of urbanization emerge. With a history that can be traced all the way back to 1832, Volvo CE is one of the true pioneers of the construction equipment industry. The company is famed for its innovations in wheel loaders and articulated haulers, but also boasts more than 75 years of excavator experience. In 1939, Swedish company Åkerman launched

its first 8-ton rope shovel. The machine was such a success that by 1956, Åkerman specialized entirely in excavators and by 1985, had sold more than 10,000 units globally. Volvo CE acquired Åkerman in 1991 and with it a whole wealth of knowledge and expertise. With the acquisition of Samsung Heavy Industries’ construction equipment division in 1998, including established excavator manufacturing operations in Korea, Volvo branded excavators leapt onto the global stage. Today, Volvo CE has R&D facilities for excavators around the world

and excavator manufacturing plants in eight locations – and demand keeps on growing. Volvo is among the top brands for excavators globally and over the last five years, Volvo CE has achieved the strongest market share growth for crawler and wheeled excavators in the competitive European market. The Volvo excavator range has likewise grown in size over the years, encompassing machines from 1.5 to 90 tons (compact, crawler and wheeled excavators, high-reach demolition machines and pipelayers). “Excavators account for a large proportion of the overall construction equipment market – and the excavator market is growing,” says Carl Slotte, president of Volvo CE Sales Region EMEA. “This makes excavators an important strategic product for Volvo CE.” Digging In The City One reason Volvo CE sees behind the growth is increasing urbanization. “Wheeled excavators are an attractive machine for contractors working in city environments; they are easy to transport, easy to manoeuvre for precise

digging, and do not risk damaging paved surfaces,” Slotte says. Volvo CE has also noted a growing trend for shortswing radius machines. “Short-swing radius machines are ideal for manoeuvring in city conditions where space may be limited. When working on a road, for example, their compactness means less disruption to other lanes and the flow of traffic. A case in point: our EWR150E was one of our best-selling models in the Nordic countries last year. As urbanization continues, we expect wheeled and short-swing radius excavators to become even more popular.” Urban areas are currently developing worldwide at a rapid rate. By 2050, around 66% of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas, according to UN projections. Over 60% of the land projected to become urban by 2030 is yet to be built. With this in mind, Volvo CE is busy planning for the future with new technologies to make construction quieter, safer, more efficient and more environmentally friendly; always working towards its goal of zero unplanned stops, zero emissions and zero accidents. Excavators Of The Future Earlier this year, Volvo CE unveiled the EX2 fully electric prototype compact excavator. The EX2 delivers the same power and

Page 15

force as its conventional counterpart with enough battery power to operate for eight hours in tough ground conditions – but with zero emissions, 10 times higher efficiency, and 10 times less noise. “The EX2 is purely a research project at the moment but it showcases how our vision of high performance and environmental care could be realized. And as we leverage the knowledge and experience of the Volvo Group within the area of electromobility, we know that electric ma-

chines are part of our future sooner or later,” Slotte says. “Whether designing the excavators of today or tomorrow, we cooperate with and involve our customers to meet the challenges they face – of fuel efficiency, emissions, noise, safety, versatility, manoeuvrability and controllability – to produce the very best machines we can. Our mission is to build the world we want to live in,” he concludes. b Source: Volvo
