Weltweit grösstes Elektrofahrzeug

Press release

World largest electric vehicle, www.eDumper.eu

Lithium Storage GmbH builds together with Kuhn Switzerland AG the world's largest, battery-operated dumper.
Planning started in March 2015 and realization of the first E-Dumper in February 2016. The completion of the E-Dumper is scheduled for December 2016. The specifications are as good as or better than the diesel version.

Chassis: Komatsu 605-7, 110t total weight.
Drive train: Synchronous electric motor, 590kW (800 HP) continuous power, up to 9‘500Nm torque
Battery: 600kWh Lithium-Ion

The vehicle is not only the world's largest electric vehicle, it also has the largest battery (600kWh) that has ever been installed in a vehicle. For comparison, a diesel vehicle consumed per year, depending on use, between 50,000 and 100,000 liters diesel during operation and generates 131-262 metric tons of CO2. The saving is a record, so much CO2 could never be saved in a single electric vehicle.

Another highlight of the E-dumper, it can be used as energy-plus vehicle. When operating at the same time it produces CO2-free electric power if the loading altitude is higher than the unload. The uphill ride is then 45 metric tons (unloaded), the downhill drive fully loaded 110 metric tons. In total, more energy is produced than needed for the uphill to the downhill drive. As a by-product CO2 free electric power is produced.
