Sany is targeting Europe for growth of its electrically powered port machinery following initial successes in Asia.

In China and South East Asia, 100 Sany empty container handlers and 40 Sany reach stackers with electric drives are already in use. 

The EU has set the ambitious goal of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and Jürgen Keller, product manager at Sany Europe, sees a significant role for electric equipment.

“Many customers are aware they need to change their machinery purchases quickly if they are to significantly reduce CO2 emissions across their fleet by 2030 and comply with EU requirements for reduced emissions. At customer level, I expect to see more discussions about this in the next six to 12 months.” 

Sany recognises that one of the most important hurdles that electrically driven machinery must overcome is the recharging process. It’s clear that operators strive to have as much operating time as possible. Sany recommends smart charging; for example, setting up charging stations in the canteen area so that the batteries can be recharged there while the operator takes a coffee break. 

In addition to its fully electrically driven machinery, Sany also offers a hybrid reach stacker. Its two drive types (combustion engine and simple hydro-pneumatic drive) contribute to a 20% reduction in emissions.

Another option is the use of biofuels. All Sany mobile port machinery that is equipped with a Stage V engine can run on biofuels in addition to conventional fuels.
