Zoomlion Introduces the World’s First Electric Truck Crane
The world’s first electric-powered truck crane rolled off its production line in China on May 7. It was developed and built by Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co., Ltd. in Changsha, the capital and most populous city of Hunan Province.
The 25-ton ZTC250N-EV truck crane keeps dynamic power in performance. According to the manufacturer, it is more economical and environmentally friendly than classic fuel powered truck cranes in the market.
The truck crane can reach to a maximum speed of 90 km/h and the maximum grade ability reaches 50%. Its comprehensive energy cost can be reduced to only 35% of similar fuel-powered vehicles in the same class.
Naturally, it produces no emission and the sound of the vehicle during driving and operating is no higher than 65 dB.
Zoomlion’s crane can deliver over 260 km of range, which meets the requirement of most construction operations says the manufacturer. It can also fit standard charging plugs and industrial sockets, which accommodates customers’ need for charging.
“We had set up a specialized team in 2018, consisting of staff from research, engineering, manufacturing and quality control departments, and completed the production of the truck crane within two years,” said Wang Qitao, Technical Director of Engineering Cranes Branch of Zoomlion.
