Zero emission construction

Electric construction equipment has the power to transform the way you work. With the benefit of zero emissions, high performance and low noise, electric machines are the perfect partner to make any construction project more sustainable. Switching one construction machine to electric is a good start towards fossil free construction sites. Our industry-leading electric machinery and chargers comes in a variety of sizes and is proven to deliver full powered operation across different applications, from urban construction and demolition through to landscaping and agriculture.

We offer a versatile range of battery electric construction machines fitted with powerful lithium-ion batteries through to different charging options to suit even the most demanding of working conditions. From electric compact excavators and loaders to larger electric construction vehicles, we are ensuring optimum uptime and productivity with reliable electric power systems. Our silent, zero-emission construction vehicles are not just good for the environment. They are good for business too. That is because you can now work in places where diesel cannot: in low carbon zones, sensitive environments, indoors or in urban environments during the night. They not only reduce CO2 emissions, but require less maintenance and lower operating costs than the traditional alternatives. We enable the decarbonization transformation with our leading technology. But we cannot do this alone. We continue to work with our suppliers and customers to do what we can to accelerate this transition. What is more, we are reliant on governments and municipalities to set the demands for fossil free innovations like ours to be included in tenders. As the desired partner for fossil free electric construction sites, we work together with all the players across the supply chain to ensure an holistic electric ecosystem. This comes not just from the electric power systems we make but through reliable charging infrastructure and the setting of strong legislation and regulations to support their implementation. The result is zero-emission construction that gets the job done in the must sustainable, efficient and peaceful way possible. Through this pioneering type of partnership, we will set industry standards towards emission-free construction, together. The industry needs to build better. Our electric power is the obvious choice.

Electric construction in action

Urban construction

The lack of exhaust fumes emitted by electric construction machines means you have the potential to work even within low emission zones. And thanks to their near silent operation, you also have the power to work through the night without disturbing people sleeping.

Indoor construction

Thanks to their compact design, our small electric machines are perfect for indoor demolition and construction. Nimble enough to get around tight corners, they also ensure a more pleasant environment in confined spaces, with zero exhaust emissions.


It is amazing what can be achieved when you work with nature and not against it. Zero-emission electric construction equipment is a game changer for landscaping - not only for those working on site but for the protection of sensitive plantlife. 



Energy companies who want to make their projects more sustainable can look no further than our electric construction equipment. Delivering the cost-effective power and performance they need, together with increased environmental care.

The power of partnership

Developing electric construction and charging solutions is only one piece of the puzzle. To create a better future and achieve our sustainable transformation, we must work together. This is why we are an essential partner for cities, governments and municipalities to help them meet their decarbonization goals. Both of us play our parts towards ensuring a reliable and efficient fossil-free future.

By setting benchmarks for low-emission construction sites we are not only helping you to reach your climate goals, but are creating more harmonious environments for those living and working nearby.

Our partnership

Cost-effective construction

Beyond the initial cost of an electric machine, there are many savings to be had in terms of total cost of ownership, energy, servicing and maintenance. It is therefore possible to save money by going electric. The most significant cost reduction comes from the difference in costs between fuel and electricity, likely to become even more advantageous in the future.

Customers using electric construction machinery

Material handling

Electric machines are a perfect fit for material handling. Just as powerful as the diesel alternatives, they are capable of transporting different materials - whether pallets, earth or gravel - both indoors and outdoors, with a variety of attachments.


Conservation and sustainability are a key focus for agriculture customers. Which is why many are turning to our silent zero-exhaust emission construction vehicles to keep their business running while maintaining a peaceful environment for livestock.


Waste & Recycling

Our powerful electric construction machines are helping customers in waste and recycling fulfill their vision for a circular economy approach. They have the potential to lower costs and carbon, while being versatile enough to take on a variety of tasks.

Waste & recycling


Zero-emission construction is good for the environment, good for business and good for society too. Imagine the difference silent electric construction makes at tourist attractions such as ski resorts and national parks.

Why choose electric construction?

The answer is simple: because we offer solutions to fit the requirements of a modern construction site. With reduced operating noise and significant CO2 reductions, you can be assured that you are meeting strict environmental regulations - while still meeting high productivity demands.

They also allow you to rethink when and where you work. Our electric solutions, from compact equipment through to larger mid-size machines, offer a whole new world of business opportunities. They provide the versatility you need, but with the advantage of working in places where diesel machines cannot - whether indoors, during the night or in noise- or emission-sensitive areas, as well as next to livestock.
