Supporting clean, zero-emission construction sites

AVL Electrification Solutions for Construction Equipment

Smart solutions for hybrid and pure electric powertrains and vehicle systems

Beyond passenger vehicles, powertrain electrification is also a growing trend in the construction equipment sector for a variety of reasons. Upcoming stringent emission legislations, NVH, renewable energy and zero-emission zones in cities are just some of the drivers of e-drive solutions.

Additionally, there is increased demand for construction vehicles with improved efficiency, productivity, lifecycles, ergonomics, and safety features. At AVL we have the expertise to deliver tailored engineering solutions to achieve these environmental, operational, and performance goals.

Modular Solutions with a Customer Focus

Our smart electrification solutions for hybrid, diesel-electric and full-electric construction vehicles are highly sophisticated and customer oriented, with a focus primarily on reliability, operating time and end-user cost. Designed to withstand the tough working conditions of construction environments, they also fulfil the precise and complex requirements of electrified systems.

​​​​​​​Our system engineering solutions cover all aspects of powertrain development, from architecture definition to component specification, supplier and market research for off-the-shelf components, business case calculation, and integration. Years of experience and a deep understanding of the needs and concerns of both the end user and the OEM, and our cross-industry experience from worldwide electrification projects, allow us to offer tailor-made solutions that reduce time-to-market.

​​​​​​​Model-based-development techniques combined with our experience in component development, systems and their interactions, enable us to provide electrification solutions that tackle the biggest challenges of the construction machinery market around the world.

​​​​​​​In order to maintain this global leadership in powertrain development we are continuously investing in massive in-house research projects. Our knowledge in hardware and software development for battery systems, e-motors, electronics, high-speed transmissions, axles, fuel cell and combustion engines complements our electrification service portfolio perfectly.
