Alelion Energy Systems signs contract with Huddig AB to develop high voltage batteries for construction machinery
2019-12-19 - Alelion Energy Systems AB
Alelion Energy Systems AB (publ) has signed a contract with the Swedish construction machinery manufacturer Huddig AB to develop high voltage batteries. These are hybrid batteries to be used in the development of a hybrid model of the Huddig backhoe loader and excavator, “TIGON”. The order includes development and production of an initial prototype battery and delivery is expected during the second quarter 2020. Total worth is around MSEK 1.8.
Huddig AB is the backhoe loader and excavator market leader in Sweden and has manufactured over 10,000 machines since starting in 1959. Through working with Alelion Energy Systems the company intends to produce a hybrid model of Huddig’s best-selling backhoe loader and excavator. This hybrid backhoe loader and excavator will have a drive line combining a combustion engine with a number of electrical engines powered by a lithium-ion battery.
With this order Alelion is making the first inroad into the construction machinery market. Over the last year the company has been focusing more and more on the special vehicle segment that is characterized by more advanced and customized battery solutions. In step with the growing awareness of climate effects and health-damaging emissions, increasing numbers of special vehicle manufacturers have begun looking at ways to electrify with the help of lithium-ion technology.
“ Our long experience of lithium-ion technology and our high technical expertise mean that we have every possibility to develop the type of customized high voltage batteries that are most often required in the special vehicle segment,” says Åsa Nordström, Acting CEO, Alelion Energy Systems. “This is a segment where demand for lithium-ion batteries is growing in step with increasing environmental requirements.”
“We look forward to working with Alelion Energy Systems in developing a lithium-ion battery for our fully hybrid backhoe loader and excavator, Tigon. Their experience in developing and producing batteries for vehicles is an excellent complement to our expertise in developing advanced construction machinery. The demand for hybrid machines in construction is expected to rise dramatically in order to minimize emissions and noise, not least in sensitive surroundings and urban environments,” says Lars Lindahl, CEO Huddig.
