The launch marked India’s first indigenously developed 100% electric Construction Equipment, propelling India on the global platform of technological advancements. ACE F150-ev 4X4 has been specifically designed to suit both road travel and pick-n-carry use. As part of the initiative to introduce sustainable technologies; the electric crane has been specially designed to deliver optimum power and productivity, while maintaining the versatility of the equipment for Indian conditions. With 4-wheel drive and required traction, this Electric Crane is suitable for rough terrain operations and is equipped with reliable safety features, including durability and stability. ACE F150-ev 4X4 is a zero-emission machine with lifting capacity of 15 tons. The crane delivers a combination of green credentials, customer benefits, and efficiency.
The launch of this high-capacity indigenous crane marks the entry of India’s construction equipment into the high tonnage domain and gives access to new markets with an opportunity to further deepen its presence both domestically and internationally.
Showcasing the engineering strength and manufacturing capabilities, was the company’s range of locally produced self-propelled Aerial Work Platforms (AWP). ACE has introduced both Articulated and Straight Boom Access Platforms to cater to both Indian and Export markets. These compact and robust machines are designed to provide access solutions at heights and come fitted with state-of-the-art safety features to optimize safe working at heights.
The company also launched a range of Telehandlers which have primarily been developed keeping in mind the export potential, besides their domestic usage. The new 35-ton 4X4 Pick and Carry Crane is the largest to be introduced by ACE, which is also the world’s largest producer of Pick and Carry Cranes.
The company’s product portfolio leverages customer demand and feedback and integrates it with its technological and manufacturing capabilities to deliver products that are designed to meet end-users’ expectations.
Further, strengthening the “Make in India” initiative of the Government, the company is expanding its manufacturing capacities, specially in the bigger crane segment, and is expected to operationalize the new facility in Faridabad in the 1st Quarter of next year. The Construction Equipment industry of India has been on an upswing and is expected to scale the pre-pandemic peak on the back of robust demand spurred by increased government spending on infrastructure projects, coupled with manufacturing sector capex and growth plans. With nine state-of-the-art plants in India, ACE manufactures a wide range of equipment and makes the country truly “Atmanirbhar” in creating world-class infrastructure.
