Volvo CE launched its EC500 electric excavator (India’s first grid-connected electric excavator) in the 50-ton class, thereby making a transition to zero-emission mining and construction machinery. It showcased its L120 Electric Wheel Loader for use in material handling at ports, mines, plants, and other construction sites. The machine has no tail pipe emissions and almost silent operations, making it suitable for a variety of indoor and outdoor applications.

Volvo CE also exhibited its 5-ton SDLG electric wheel loader. The company has delivered 12 units of these loaders for cement, steel, and power industries. “These electric wheel loaders will be highly suitable to work in areas like tunnel construction projects where there are issues of inadequate ventilation of fumes. Besides, with the side discharge buckets, the Volvo loader will be able to work for muck removal on highly constricted site areas like tunnels and electrical working functionalities.”

Also on display was a prototype of EC80 Electric track excavator (an addition to its existing compact EC55 electric range) for use in urban construction and forestry. The machine delivers superior performance with 6-8 hours of autonomy due to its bigger battery.

The company displayed its India-made electric compactors DD40 and PT220. DD40 Electric Compactor features advanced instrumentation, zero-emission operation, and reliable charging, with energy cost reductions of up to 50%; while the PT220 is designed for environmentally sensitive areas with strict emission regulations, ensuring cleaner and quieter construction operations. Both products exemplify Volvo CE’s advanced engineering capabilities and commitment to sustainable and local solutions for the Indian market. Also on display was the EC210D, a 20-ton excavator that has demonstrated proven performance and productivity.

Customers also get to understand the advantages of uptime services such as automatic machine monitoring and real-time tech support. They also have access to expert technicians, genuine parts, and remanufactured components, ensuring maximum uptime.

Said Dimitrov Krishnan, Managing Director, Volvo CE India, “Volvo construction equipment is leading the way with electric machines that minimise our industry’s carbon footprint and enable more sustainable operations in mining, material handling, steel, cement, and urban infrastructure sectors. With our electric and other machines backed by comprehensive service solutions, we aim to provide customers the necessary tools to achieve their productivity and sustainability goals.”

He informed that Volvo Construction Equipment India will rely on its ‘Service Business Models’ for promoting its electric wheel loaders, excavators, and road equipments. “The reason for going through the ‘Service Business Model’ to promote our range of both SDLG and Volvo wheel loaders is to make the customers well acquainted with the functioning of the units. Operators in the field today are not familiar with Electric products and their handling. With our Service Business Model, we will be able to operate the machines safely till the owner/operator of the machines become fully adaptable with the nuances of the functionalities of the machines.”

Under the ‘Service Business Model’ the ownership, operation and maintenance of the equipment will remain with Volvo CE India. “The ‘Service Business Model’ will be advantageous for customers because through this, we will be able deliver the total costs of ownership to the customers and without the customers having to pay the higher initial costs associated with the machines,” informed Dimitrov.
