The drivetrains powering electric excavators

By Catrin Jones09 May 2022

Danfoss Power Solutions’ Editron division has provided the drivetrains powering two new fully electric Doosan excavators. Electrauvision, a division of Danfoss’ partner Hydrauvison, is supplying the Danfoss drivetrains to Electric Construction Equipment (ECE), which has a licence agreement with Doosan to modify the firm’s equipment for European dealers.

The newly developed machines are a 16-ton wheel excavator and a 30-ton crawler excavator that both feature an exchange battery swapping system where an electric powerbox is used to power the electric drivetrain.
