Leading the way in Hybrid power KKB have welcomed an additional 10 new Komatsu Excavators ranging from HB215-3 – HB365LC-3. This will take the total number of Hybrid machines to over 25 machines – one of the largest fleets in the UK. The HB215LC-3 features intelligent Hybrid technology designed to lower emissions and reduce the environmental impact. The machines operate with a 100% electric slew system, improving the cycle time of the machine and maximising productivity, the electric slew motor-generator captures free kinetic energy and regenerates the power during the slew motion. The Hybrid technology can offer a high percentage cost saving towards fuel against the standard diesel engine and help to reduce our carbon footprint. The machines low noise offers the operator a better and more productive working environment this benefiting site staff and members of the local community.
KKB is also currently working with its supply chain to create a roadmap to integrating all electric plant machinery into its current plant fleet to help meets its carbon emissions targets.
