UK-based contractor Kier has been trialling new technology to reduce the energy required to power a static crane.
The flywheel energy storage system is called PUNCH Flybird and is said to be similar to technology used by Formula 1 racing cars. It can capture energy from a machine that would normally be wasted, storing it in a high-speed energy storage flywheel.
