Volvo partners for on-site charging source

Volvo Construction Equipment has partnered with Beam Global to allow Volvo dealers to bundle charging systems with the purchase of electrical equipment.

Beam provides products for electric vehicle (EV) charging, energy storage, energy security and outdoor media. The partnership involves the company’s EV ARC off-grid charging systems.

This joint offering enables construction sites to rapidly deploy electric vehicle charging, without the need for electrical work, grid connections or fossil fuel generators, to power zero-emission construction equipment that runs on sunlight and does not generate no utility bill, according to Radiate.

“The construction industry has an opportunity to future-proof its business against noise, carbon emissions regulations and volatile fossil fuel costs by embracing electric machinery,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley, in a prepared statement. “By supplying our sustainable electric vehicle charging systems alongside Volvo’s best electric machines, we are enabling this transition in the fastest, cleanest and most scalable way available. We are proud to partner with Volvo CE to electrify the construction industry. »

Said Ray Gallant, vice president of product and productivity management at Volvo CE in a statement:

“The Volvo CE range of zero-emission construction equipment can now be charged with a zero-emission power source provided by the EV ARC. Beam Global shares our vision to electrify mobility worldwide, a crucial step towards mitigating climate change and reducing noise and air pollution. The construction industry is ready for an energy transition that reduces emissions and improves the performance, longevity and user-friendliness of machines. We are committed to an electric future and see Beam Global as a strategic partner in this journey. »

The EV ARC system can be set up and ready to go in minutes, according to Beam. It is fully autonomous, which means that it generates, stores and delivers electricity independent of the grid. Whether the project is in a remote nature reserve or a densely populated city with strict zoning rules, the solar-powered ARC EV can be deployed without any electrical work or permits.
