zero emission solutions in application constructing a trail park
A region completely without internal combustion engines – this is the Bettmeralp in the Swiss Aletsch Arena. Here, a mountain bike trail park barely three kilometers long is being developed – fully in harmony with nature. The Wacker Neuson zero emission solutions are ideal for this, as they work without direct exhaust emissions and are particularly low in noise. Velosolutions, a business with long years of experience in trail construction, is responsible for the implementation. “We love the Alps, and working in this special setting without noise or exhaust emissions puts us in a really good mood,” explains Roman Gadient, trail builder at Velosolutions. “We are using the zero emission machines by Wacker Neuson for nature’s sake. Meanwhile, manual labor is a big component of our work.” Not just the construction work was carried out with electric machines, but also transport, with an electric-powered truck.
Two Zero Tail excavators EZ17e showed what they could do during excavation work. With its high-quality lithium-ion technology, the machine meets the high demands for performance, durability, and sturdiness. This technology has already been in use by Wacker Neuson for several years now and has proven its worth many times. The generous battery capacity ensures that the hydraulic functions are available the whole workday long with the same performance as a conventional model. For transporting material, the track dumper DT10e by Wacker Neuson was used. The low location of the batteries makes it particularly stable, which is especially useful in the rough terrain of the Alps. For soil compaction, two battery-powered vibratory plates APS1135e were put into application. Like all zero emission solutions by Wacker Neuson, the plate has the same output as its conventional counterpart.
