Komatsu to highlight electric machines at Bauma
By Lewis Tyler28 September 2022
Alongside the PC228USLC-11 excavator, PW98MR-11 midi excavator and K100 boom change system for its PC490HRD-11 demolition excavator, Komatsu is to highlight its shifts towards electric machines at global trade show Bauma next month, .
Part of the company’s decision to focus on electrification, Komatsu says, is its long-term goal to achieve carbon neutrality and zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Komatsu also has a commitment to halve its CO2 emissions and increase the rate of renewable energy machines use to 50% compared to 2010 levels by 2030.
As such, it is expected that this will be reflected at Bauma in the range of machines that will be on show at the Komatsu stand.
The company is expected to unveil a mix of 27 new and existing machines at the show, as well as a host of technology including the SmartConstruction – Earthbrain development and Komtrax Next Generation and Komtrax Data Analytics wireless monitoring systems which will be available to view on separate stands.
15 of the machines from Komatsu on show at Bauma will take part in live demonstrations, while Komatsu has also confirmed it will host a Virtual Stand, where visitors will get a first look at upcoming innovations for wheeled loaders.
